Neighborhoods

Overall, Slovenia is a safe country to visit. However, its geographic location means travelers should stay up to date on the news during their stays, since terrorist attacks occasionally occur in Europe. Strikes and protests can also turn violent at times, so it's best to avoid public demonstrations (which primarily take place at Congress Square or outside of government buildings). Some travelers also caution that Metelkova mesto can feel unsafe at night.

Although the country has low crime levels, petty crimes like purse snatching, pickpocketing, vehicle break-ins and bike theft are common in tourist areas. To avoid falling victim to these crimes, safeguard your belongings and lock your car or bicycle. For more information about how to stay safe while visiting Slovenia, check out the U.S. State Department's website.
