Slovenia Finally Joins Coronavirus Club!

more than a year ago
UPDATED: Slovenia was late to the party, but finally had it's first reported case of the coronavirus (or COVID-19) on 4 March 2020. Are we all going to die? Yes, eventually, but that was already the case. More travel info and updates can now be found here.

It’s obviously only a matter of time before Slovenia will no longer be on the list of countries without any reported cases of coronavirus - as Italy (aka European Wuhan) is just next door, and Austria and Croatia also have confirmed cases now - so enjoy it while you can, and stock up on non-perishables before all the shelves at Hofer and Lidl are completely empty!

While the storied Isonzo Front from WWI fame (thanks Hemingway!) and its beautiful Soča Valley were able to put up a mighty defence against advancing armies a century ago, airborne super viruses are surely a whole other ballgame. Anyway, best to make the most of your time in coronavirus-free Slovenia while you can, and hit up the usual tourist hotspots of the capital city Ljubljana, the alpine fairy tale lake of Bled, and the picturesque Venetian towns of the Mediterranean coast with a quick stop at either Postojna or Škocjan caves along the way.
