Safely around the Country
Wherever you are, even late at night in major cities, you have no cause for concern. Although it is very unlikely for you to become a victim of a crime, such things can never be completely prevented. Thefts are the most common crimes, which can be often prevented by acting properly.
Slovenia – one of the safest and most secure countries
The Global Peace Report 2016 has ranked Slovenia as the 10th safest country in the world, moving it up five spots since 2015.
We recommend that you:
- carefully safeguard your belongings, and do not leave them in visible places, for example, in a car,
- only carry as much cash as you need,
- keep valuables and large sums of cash in a hotel safe,
- avoid unlit and deserted streets after dark,
- ock your car and park in well-lit public areas intended for parking,
- before leaving home, photocopy all your documents, airline and other tickets, bookings, and similar. In the event of theft or loss, this will make it easier to prove your identity and arrange replacement documents.
What to do if ...?
If you become a victim of theft despite your precautions, call the police immediately on 113.
If your documents are stolen or lost, you can also turn to your country's diplomatic and consular mission.
In major cities you might be approached by homeless people begging for money, but they are not dangerous.
