Slovenia has been strongly connected to Austria for centuries. Firstly, during the times of the Habsburgs and that continued also during the time of Austro – Hungarian empire. This can easily be seen through architecture and once you get to know Slovenians better you can see how well organized we are. Great combination of Austrian “order and discipline” and Balkan temperament and hospitality.
