Thefts are the most common crimes in Slovenia. Therefore it is advisable that, despite the high levels of safety and security, you act responsibly and ensure you travel safely. Here are some tips on how to protect yourselves and your belongings from thieves.
- take care of you belongings and do not leave them in visible places, e.g. in the car,
- do not carry more cash on you than you need,
- store valuable belongings and larger sums of money in hotel safes,
- avoid dark, quiet streets in the dark,
- lock your car and park it in well-lit public parking spaces,
- make copies of all your documents, plane tickets, passes, bookings, etc. before departing. This facilitates identity proving and arranging replacements for any documents that you lose or are stolen.
What to do if...?
If, despite your diligence, you are a victim of theft, dial 113 immediately to contact the police.
If your documents get stolen or lost, you can contact your country’s diplomatic or consular mission for assistance.
In larger towns and cities, you may encounter homeless people asking you for money, but they usually do not represent a threat.
