Stay Safe & Healthy in Slovenia

EuropeSloveniaStay Safe & Healthy in Slovenia

Slovenia is most likely one of the safest nations to visit, but be cautious.

The number to dial in an emergency is 112. Dial 113 to contact the police. Along the major highways, there are emergency phone booths. The arrows on the reflection posts will direct you to the nearest SOS-phone.

In packed clubs and discothèques, people may get violent, and it is not unusual to be grabbed or groped.

Petty thievery is common in the area of Roma communities in the south, particularly near the Krka river. Don’t be concerned; just don’t leave your watch on the vehicle seat while you go kayaking.

Slovenia has no unique health risks. The hygiene standards are excellent, and the tap water is safe to drink.

Because of the risk of Borreliosis and Meningitis, always apply tick repellent while out in nature. Borreliosis is very common in the nation.

The Julian Alps are home to two kinds of poisonous adders. You are unlikely to get bitten, but if you are, seek medical attention since antiserums are available (although actually seldom administered). In the southern woods, you may come across a bear; Slovenia has the largest bear population in Europe, although bear assaults are very uncommon. Normally, indigenous wild animals in nations that have been tamed for many thousand years would be either extremely wary of people or quite familiar with them. Of course, it depends on where you are, but apply your common sense. If you go camping in the Julian Alps and pack a lot of sausage and bacon, you may invite some unwelcome guests.
