Living in Slovenia

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Jan 10, 2024

Summary: People describe life in Slovenia as peaceful, safe, and beautiful. Expats love the stunning natural beauty of the country, the friendly people, the excellent healthcare system, and the low cost of living. The average cost of living for an expat is around $1,500 per month, depending on lifestyle. The population of Slovenia is approximately 2.1 million people, and the largest cities are Ljubljana, Maribor, Celje, Kranj, and Velenje. The cons of living in Slovenia include the lack of job opportunities, the slow pace of life, and the limited nightlife. Additionally, the cost of living is rising, and the country is not as diverse as other European countries.

What do I need to know about living in Slovenia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Slovenia, they said:

"Before retiring in Slovenia, expats should familiarize themselves with the country's language, culture, and customs. They should also research the cost of living and the availability of healthcare services. Additionally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits to live and work in Slovenia. It is also important to understand the tax system and the pension system in Slovenia. Finally, expats should consider the climate and the type of lifestyle they wish to have in Slovenia," remarked one expat who made the move to Slovenia.
