By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Jun 19, 2023

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 are the pros and cons of living in Slovenia?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Slovenia responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Slovenia appreciate the country's stunning natural beauty, with its mountains, lakes, and forests. They also enjoy the country's vibrant culture, with its many festivals, museums, and galleries. Additionally, they appreciate the low cost of living, with affordable housing and food. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the language barrier to be a challenge, as Slovenian is the official language. Additionally, the country's small size may make it difficult to find a wide variety of activities and entertainment," said one member in Slovenia.
