The capital and largest city of Slovenia is Ljubljana. For nearly 1,000 years, Slovenia has been influenced by its neighbouring countries, particularly Italy, Austria and Croatia as its geographic position lies at the crossroads of Germanic, Latin and Slavic cultures.

Around 40% of Slovenia's land mass is elevated land—mostly in the form of mountains and plateaus—which is located in the interior regions of the country. The highest point of Slovenia is the 2,864 metre (9,396 ft) high Mount Triglay. The majority of the population speaks Slovene, which is also the country's official language. Other local official languages are Hungarian and Italian.
