slovenia Travel Guide

Tipping in Slovenia: Similar to some its neighbours, Slovenia hasn't got a strong tipping etiquette. Gratuities are not widely expected, but are very warmly received especially in low paid sectors such as hotel service staff.

A couple of Euros will go a long way to show your appreciation of great service. Rounding up to the nearest Euro in taxis and cafes is common but not essential. In restaurants the standard 10% is a good mark to aim for, however if you haven't been satisfied, then not leaving a tip is fine.

Best time to go to Slovenia: The weather in Slovenia is typical of continental Europe where the four seasons really is evident. Summer days can reach 30 degrees with warm evenings, whilst in winter, snow is common.

Spring days are generally pleasant with lots of sunny days although rain showers are also frequent. Rain in autumn is more prevalent but still offers good day-time temperatures for lots of outdoor exploring.

Drinking water in Slovenia: Tap water in Slovenia is of excellent quality. In many towns you'll find public drinking fountains with natural water, which is great to cool off from those warm days. In many places in Slovenia, the tap water is hard, i.e. they have high contents of harmless lime scale.
