1.2.2011 GASTRONOMIC SPECIALITIES OF SLOVENIA - A sumptuous celebration of good food and wine
Slovenia is an extraordinary geographical crossroads: it has the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, the Pannonian Plain and the Karst. It has extensive forests and thousands of hill vineyards. It has rivers and lakes with indigenous animal species. As well as this natural diversity, it is a European cultural crossroads where the Slavonic, Germanic, Romance and Finno-Ugric worlds all meet.
Special natural characteristics and historical contact with other nations can also be tasted in its cuisine. Slovenia has created its own culinary specialities by preserving its own cuisine and giving a distinctly Slovenian twist to much that it has imported from elsewhere.
