In recent years we see more and more Italians (but not only) who choose to move their lives and their activities to Slovenia. Because? I don’t think there is a question to answer more simply. To begin with, Slovenia is one of the safest countries in the world. Therefore, the quality of life is excellent. Life in Slovenia is pleasant, with exceptionally low crime rates and, given the real estate boom in Bled, we can say that the eye wants its part too.
Slovenia has an advantageous geostrategic position. It is located at the crossroads of the main European cultural and commercial routes. This is why its position is a strategic advantage for those who work in import and export. From the capital, Ljubljana, you need about an hour’s drive to all neighboring countries such as Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary – a nice plus. In Slovenia you can find almost everything: mountains, lakes, caves, wild rivers, wonderfully clean cities, castles and even the sea. Anyone can enjoy life in Slovenia if they love nature and clean air.
Why you should buy a property in Slovenia
The capital Ljubljana is one of the smallest European capitals and, undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful with many Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings. In addition, the whole of Slovenia can boast of delicious typical food and first-class wine and beer. Slovenian cuisine is varied and the choice is wide. You can get fresh local ingredients from local farmers at each market.
Healthcare in Slovenia is available to all registered citizens and long-term residents. The medical staff are extremely well trained. Private health care is still available but all citizens are legally entitled to equal access to health care. Basic education is also compulsory and free for all other minor foreign citizens residing in Slovenia and for children without citizenship.
For most foreigners, the Slovenian language is difficult and incomprehensible, but the inhabitants of Slovenia speak a large number of other languages. That is why it is easy for you to start a life in Slovenia and adapt quickly. English is widely spoken, in the eastern part of the country also German and in the western part the Italian language. The younger generations also speak other languages of the world: Russian, French, Spanish, all Slovenians can also explain themselves in Croatian, Serbian or Bosnian. Foreign citizens have the right to set up or transfer their business in Slovenia. When registering a company in Slovenia, people employed in the company have the right to obtain a single work and residence permit in Slovenia. It is also an attractive destination for doing business because it is an EU member state and is located in the Schengen zone. The official currency in Slovenia is the Euro, as in the whole Eurozone.
Real estate in Bled
Among the various Slovenian cities, the city of Bled is particularly charming: there is a beautiful church (Zupnijska Cerkev) and a typical central European center, welcoming with narrow streets.
In the summer, Bled is a hot spot for all kinds of night activities and concerts: almost every weekend there are festivals, laser lights and fireworks. But also a deep respect of people towards nature and the place where they live.
Lake Bled is the most popular tourist attraction in Slovenia and although it is becoming more and more famous, it is still relatively unknown compared to other European monuments. And, contrary to other places flooded with masses of visitors, beautiful Bled is by no means overrated. The city of Bled is best visited in the summer when you can swim, kayak, hike and use it as a base to explore the amazing hidden treasures of the Slovenian Julian Alps. But even in winter it is an excellent city to live in as it is extremely quiet but active and full of business opportunities. This is why more and more people are choosing real estate in Bled. Extremely close to all major cities and the capital, it offers a “greener” alternative to larger cities and a wide alternative to luxury properties surrounded by greenery. This is the great advantage of real estate in Bled and of the choice to buy property in Slovenia: nowhere in Europe would you have these possibilities.
