Slovenia's water wealth

Slovenia is one of the most water-rich European countries in Europe and it also boasts potable water of incredible quality. They say that pouring clean water from a tap is a true sign of prestige nowadays. Slovenia offers it in abundance at every step! Both Slovenians and experts in the healing effects of mineral water have known about and enjoyed the popular local mineral waters for centuries, and these can be tasted at their very source if you visit the places from which they hail. Drinking water with special properties and effects is also available in other places in Slovenia – at sources which have their own history. 

 

Slovenia is one of the smallest countries in Europe, but in terms of water resources it is among the richest.

Its water quality ranks at the very top of the developed countries.

The total length of surface watercourses in Slovenia is about 27,000 kilometres.

Many Slovenian towns have drinking fountains to quench your thirst. In the capital city of Ljubljana alone there are no less than 30 urban drinking fountains available in the warmer months.

Water is abundant everywhere in Slovenia

Water is the source of life. It all starts at the source, which is why Slovenia devotes so much to caring for the quality of both surface water and groundwater. Clean waters offer active refreshment, while mineral and thermal springs, gushing from the depths of the earth to the surface, are renowned for their healing properties.

So green!

Slovenia will remind you that water is fundamentally transparent. It reflects the blue of the sky and the greenery of its surroundings. Alongside its rich biodiversity and chemical structure, each river or lake impresses onlookers with its beautiful shades, which make Slovenian waters even more attractive.
