By now, you know GEA College offers internationally recognized study programs but what are some other benefits of studying in Slovenia?


Enjoy charming Ljubljana

Ljubljana, the cultural and political center of Slovenia, lies almost in the very center of the country. In recent years, it has become an important European business, congressional, commercial, and exhibition city with a rich history and exciting future. Ljubljana is also becoming a popular educational destination.


One of the greenest capitals

Ljubljana closed its historic city center for car traffic in 2008 to have more green space. It is surrounded by green hills that offer a great escape from city buzz to peaceful nature. Tivoli Park (also called the green lungs of Ljubljana) is the city’s largest parkland area. In 2016, Ljubljana proudly held the title of European Green Capital.


City of fun and culture

There are numerous festivals, cultural venues, and nightclubs that make Ljubljana very enjoyable. Over 10,000 cultural events take place in the city each year. If you want to get a feel for the pleasant vibe of the city, visit the central marketplace or take a walk by the river Ljubljanica.


A safe city with excellent value for money

By owning the (it is a must-have :)) Urbana card for 20 euros a month, you can pay for transportation, rent a bike for free (BicikeLJ), go to the library, get guided tours, pay for parking, etc. Students get a lot of discounts at various venues too. Ljubljana is a very safe city, even at night. The worst-case scenario is getting pickpocketed, and even that is pretty rare.


Explore beautiful Slovenia

It is sometimes hard to comprehend how such a small country offers so much diversity and richness. Slovenia is located in Central Europe, surrounded by the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pannonian Plain, and the Karst, and the best thing is that one can see all that in just two days! You can walk the beautiful city of Piran at the seacoast, or go hiking and mountain climbing in the Alps, take a boat to Bled Lake island, enjoy wine tasting in Goričko in the east, do some fishing in the Kolpa River in the south, have an adrenaline rush in Soča valley where you can go rafting, kayaking, canyoning, hydrospeeding, or rock climbing.


A small country with big names

Slovenia has quite a number of globally known celebrities, but just to name a few: Luka Dončić, an NBA star, dr. Slavoj Žižek, internationally recognized philosopher, Tadej Pogačar, cyclist and a 2020 Tour de France winner, and the world’s best female chef Ana Roš.
