With dishes that taste and look like magic performances and bright wines produced by inexplicable alchemical methods, Slovenia has long become one of the Europe’s most fascinating places to eat and drink. This amazing country is just around 25 years old, but for hundreds of years its territory served as a buffer area between major nations. For centuries, Slovenia was ruled by outsiders, who made a strong impact on the culture and traditions of this land before leaving. Thus, one of the most vivid traces of history is reflected in local food and wine. These are the two most impressive reasons to visit this picturesque land. Slovenian cuisine involves features of Austria and Italy, Croatia and Hungary, Russia and even Turkey. In recent years, Slovenia’s savory vines have gained good reputation among decent drinkers from New York and Tokyo. The countryside of Slovenia and its capital capture attention of foreign visitors with a unique food culture, which is thoroughly created by the best chefs and winemakers in their traditional kitchens.
