I'm a Slovenian, but I'm hoping to one day leave this tiny country because of wanderlust :)

Unfortunately I'm still studying, so not enough money or possibilities for someone like me to just up and leave. Until then I'll be posting here too, helping people who I can't believe have heard of this tiny country or even want to more here! :)

I am studying in Ljubljana but I'm originally from the coast. So I can probably help & answer questions about both those locations! And if I don't know, I'm very good at googling ;)

Hi all!

I am a Canadian/ Italian dual citizen looking to re-locate to Slovenia, most likely Maribor. Since I am a tour director working on the Danube I am on the road for almost 5 months of the year and think Slovenia is a great place to call home.

I have never moved from Canada to another country an would love any advice from Canadians in the area. Also how as a tour director can I get to Ljubljana or Graz international airports easily?

Hi we emigrated to Slovenia from the UK after we retired and are raising our to young grandchildren who we are legal guardians to too. They now go to a local school and are bilingual in both English and Slovene. It is certainly a cheaper option than living in the UK.

Hi when we moved the children were 5 and 6. They went to a local Slovene school, the school got extra funding to teach the children Slovene. It's a lovely school and some of the teachers speak English as they teach English in the curriculum. My children had no problems at all settling in school.

Thank you for your answer. We will move in April this year.  ;)

I just realise when i looked your profil you are from West Yorkshire, and we are actually in Sheffield ;-)

Hello Guys, I am currently working in Dubai taking care of business in International market. However as UAE does not have an immigration plan (no matter how long you stay here), I am planning to move on. Slovenia seems like a beautiful country to move and as I already have plans of setting up a business, I am hoping with the right connections and guidance, I might be able to open up a company in Slovenia. I have a small family with my wife and two boys. We hope to settle down in a quiet and beautiful place with wonderful people around.

I am from Portugal and I m living in Ljubljana. I concluded my studies in microbiology and I'm now working in slovenia

Hi Everyone,
My name is Balazs, I'm from Hungary and planning to live in Ljubljana for a certain period of time.
I've already visited several times the capital, the coasts, and the mountains, and I immediately fell in love in the country. I always wanted to learn a new language and as I recently turned to 30 I think now it's the time to change my everyday lifestyle. I plan to attend a spring language school next year and then maybe to find a job in a multinational company. Having a diploma of French teacher, triathlon coach and indoor cycling trainer; having experience of 7 years in multinational IT companies and shared service centers, I hope that I will find my happiness in each aspect of life.

Im John, 26, I moved to Slovenia and married my wife and I have been living in Slovenia a little over 3 and getting to 4 years soon.

Long story short: Still havnt grasped the language yet as I work online and speak to only english speaking people and I dont honestly get out much since going full time with my online business ventures.

i have been to Slovenia 2 years ago on a summer camp for 2 weeks and it was amazing :D

Hi, I'm from Scotland and fell in love with Slovenia on my first visit 29 years ago and kept going back. I'm not quite an full ex-pat yet - I bought a house in the Soca Valley area last year and visit it whenever I can, and plan to retire there in the near future. At the moment I'm still getting to grips with modernising the house and getting used to life in my village. Despite my Slovene language skills still being poor I've been welcomed with great hospitality by my neighbours, and I hope to learn as I spend more time there. I'm a web designer and internet consultant so I can work from there now that I have an internet connection.

Look forward to some interesting conversations here.

Hi ! My name is Marc and I am from Barcelona, Spain. Due to a european grant, I ended up living in Slovenia so it will be great meet new people.  It will also be great to learn a little bit more of slovenian(its so hard for me xd).

Anyway hope we can see and meet sometime.

Best Regards,

Hello everyone,
I'm from Portland, OR in the US and I've been living in Slovenia since May this year. I was living in Maribor with my boyfriend until we moved to Ljubljana a couple of months ago. I'm quickly falling in love with the city and would love to meet some more people that live here!

Hi!  I'm enchanted with Slovenia. No words can describe how beautiful this little country is.  It is like a fairy tale with charming houses, castles and churches.  A haven for nature lovers with little streams and clusters of trees everywhere.  I spent the Christmas-New Year holiday with my boyfriend and his family in Slovenia.  That short period was enough for me to want to live in there.   

I am now back in the Philippines. While I'm glad to be home, I am longing to be back in Slovenia and the Slovenian who had captured my heart.  Question now is how do I start?  And what can I do once I manage to relocate? What business would be good in Slovenia?

I'd love to hear about other people's stories of relocating to Slovenia and your business advices.

Hi did you move as planned?

Hi Alibobs9

Preparing to move is a major decision we are still studying.  Our time frame is 6 months to one year due to the documentation involved.

Hey! I am from Finland and studying media as an exchange student in Ljubljana for February and March 2017. I'm looking for friends to hang out with and see the city. There's so much to do and I would love to share it with someone!
Message me :)

Welcome all in the forum, am a Nigerian presently in Egypt. Would soon be in Slovenia but can I begin to learn some features about the country especially  Ljubljana . Although, I have read few about the country.

Hello, my name Chi tran from Cali USA i am planning to visit Slovania someday will u give some advise if i go there in the future like leaning they language etc.. hoping i receive some advise from you.

Hello Chi
If you plan to come here for some holidays, you will not need to speak Slovene. Mostly people from Slovenia speaks english. If you want to learn Slovene, you must stay here for few years and it will not be easy. I'm sure you will be welcome. What will you like to know about Slovenia?
