Slovenia is a country in Central Europe on the southern edge of the Alps. It is bordered by Austria to the north, Italy and the Adriatic Sea to the west, Croatia to the south and east and Hungary to the northeast. The border with Austria is largely formed by the watershed of the Karawanken ridge, with peaks above 2000 m, which are part of the Alps.

The national anthem, or Zdravljica, was written by the Slovenian poet France Prešeren in 1844. Its publication was initially banned by the censors. After the abolition of censorship as a result of the revolution in 1848, the poem was able to appear for the first time in the magazine Novice.
