The Definitive Guide to Slovenia

Starod to Kozina, Slovenia.
Number of Kilometers: 13,271.2
Number of countries crossed: 12 (China, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia)

After 41.2km cycling through Slovenia we think it is acceptable to say we have the authority to give a comprehensive evaluation of the country’s socio-economic, political and cultural position in the world. Here are some observations:

All petrol attendants in the country are rude.
All public wifi does not work.
The national dish of roasted piglet is excellent everywhere.
It rains every day and is very windy.
The whole country is hilly.
Pizza is served more often than Ghoulash.
There are no Slovenian cars, all the ones on the road have Italian number plates.
Cameras get blocked in Slovenia so no pictures were taken to support this post.

Slovenian piglet. The best food we had in Slovenia by far. In Kozina, Slovenia.

The only photo we managed to take in Slovenia. Roasted piglet, before it was eaten by a bear.

Congratulations, you made it to hell. Ooooh I found some leftover crumbs!

If you have seen this bear, please report to the Slovenian police.

  1. Hi mate!
    I just came across this article and I think you shouldn’t make this kind of conclusions based on 42km of a country.. May I ask how many times have you stopped on the gas station? I agree, there will always be rude people, but to say that ALL people are rude, well there may be an issue with YOUR attitude then. Roasted piglet is not even close to Slovenian national dish, so this statement is very misleading. It is a Bosnian national dish.. Regarding the licence plates, I hope that was a joke and that my sarcasm detector is broken.. No wonder that there were a lot of Italian licence plates if you were riding at a border area. Are you sure you were not in Italy? 🙂 To conclude my essay: Blogs are supposed to educate people and this blog post is doing exactly that. But with misleading and wrong statements. Please check what you write before you post it and you know what they say; don’t judge country by its 41.2 kms 😀 Let me know when you will be in Slovenia next time and I will show you the real Slovenian country! 🙂

    • Hi Jean,
      Thanks for your message.
      Great to see that we have some Slovenian readership!
      I am not sure blogs are supposed to educate people. Ours certainly does not intend to!
      We will for sure keep you posted if we come back to Slovenia. It did look lovely (and hilly) and we definitely need to see more than one petrol station 😉
