What do expats in Slovenia appreciate most about the local culture?

"No crime, great accessibility to other countries via train, good food, good wine. No traffic. Merchants operate on the honor system. Big Bang which is the electronics store, trusts you to walk your new electronic item to the front register on the floor below. Did I mention no guns, no crime," remarked another in Bled.

What do expats find most challenging?

"There is also a bit of nihilism here on the part of population who longs for the good old days with Tito and who are paid very poorly for the most part, even the professionals," remarked another in Bled.

What are the schools in Slovenia like?

"This is the only certified international school in Ljubljana. There are other international schools, but they do not give official report card at the end of the year. Students have to take extra test to prove their knowledge. If you have older children it is better not to come to Ljubljana," added another expat with kids at Danila Kumar International School in Ljubljana.

"This school is unique. The teachers and parents work closely together and seem to truly care for one another and of course the kids. The older classes are smaller which parents here love though more middle and high school students would mean bigger sports. They do a lot to make it meaningful for all ages, even though the secondary is smaller. Last year, everyone ended the year loving the school, very satisfied, and still very committed to growing and always improving. It's a great school for both my kids and my family as a whole," commented one expat when asked about QSI International School of Ljubljana in Ljubljana.
