slovenia, claimed its independance in the year 1991, although it part of many other countries till now, known as having their own culture since the 11th century. they gave themselves their name already in the 16th century, although bein part of the austro-hungarian empire untill the empire broke, with croatia and bosnia, they joined serbia into a country called SHS kingdom (kraljevina slovencev, hrvatov in serbov) wich in 1934 renamed to Yugoslavia. after many years, slovenia, croatia and many other countries decided to claim independance, but the slovene started the idea, and the main reason why serbia 'is said to' dislike slovenia more than the other countries. out of the whole of yugoslavia, slovenia was the most forward technologically, and wich only 2million people, and a very small part of the whole 'country' of yugoslavia at the time still made 25% of yugoslavias income, making it one of the most prosperous countries for its size. in 2004 slovenia joined the EU along with 9 other countries, being one of the smallest, still had the strongest economy.
Slovenia is called the green piece of europe, and its very true, over 56% of slovenia is covered by trees. its also been said to be one of the most beautiful places on earth, having everything, from mountains, to mountain lakes, to the seaside, to beautiful wine 'farms', to some of the biggest caves that contain animals that cannot be found anywhere else, and the best thing is you can see all that in a day. its definately my favourite country in all perspectives. many american stars have called slovenia paradise.
