In addition, the sovereign Slovenian language is related our. And it simplifies communication. After a while you start to understand something from what the owners say. In addition, Slovenians necessarily know one of the three languages English, German or Italian. Locals are a bit like their neighbors-Austrians, rational, some closed. Do not like to have fun so openly like their neighbors on the former socialist community of Serbs and Montenegrin. Conservative, respect the family and clearly share life for personal and public. The average Slovenian is energetic, formed, has a wonderful sense of humor, loves to eat and drink. Buying goods, he never reads instructions because it is sure that he "the cleverest" And in everything will understand.
For Slovenian, it is important that he has everything better than a neighbor. The car is prestigious and more beautiful, and in the port of the yacht. And if it is not needed, once a year you can boast it before friends. Slovenics are more independent and practical than men. 90 percent of Slovenian women work. our lady hardly wishes re-meet with a man who did not take on expenses during the romantic courtship period. And Slovenian will find a humiliating if she is offered. When a young man goes with a girl in a restaurant or bar, then pays for himself. But here is a paradox. In family life, the usual our woman submoldly tolerates the presence of a broken, drinking husband, forgives him all. And the Slovenian woman with such a spouse immediately breaks.

And in the eastern part of Slovenia, it is simply necessary to try the Premurry Hibanitsa – sweetness prepared "with" Izyuma, cottage cheese, apples and poppy.
Ironizing over yourself, Slovenians say that the most greedy people in the Alpine part of the country. It is explained by the fact that here is very short summer, and the inhabitants of the food prepared for winter. Typical mountainous dishes: potatoes, sauerkraut and "Kranjska" Sausage, named so on the ancient name of Slovenia. She reminds our "Kyivskaya". So bored by native food the ours will not forget her.
