"It is important to be aware of cultural differences when visiting Slovenia. It is considered rude to be late for appointments or social engagements, so it is important to be punctual. It is also important to dress conservatively, especially when visiting religious sites. It is also important to be respectful of local customs and traditions, and to avoid making negative comments about the country or its people. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the local language and to avoid speaking loudly in public. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local cuisine and to avoid eating with your hands," commented one expat who made the move to Slovenia.

"Frequently, I can't hear what someone is trying to tell me in Slovenian/English. 'There is a disabled beagle on the A1 between Koper and Ljubljana.'," remarked another expat in Bled, Slovenia.
