In Life by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

This week at theCurrent we discovered the hidden gem that is Slovenia, presented a crash course on money transfers, updated our ‘Continental’s Countries’ database, and more! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.

Slovenia

Slovenia was our Country of the Week. A land at the crossroads of empires and conflict for years, it avoided the devastation faced by the rest of Yugoslavia during the the latter years of the last century. Learn more HERE.

Our Travel Guide unearthed the stunning natural beauty of Slovenia – from mountains and lakes to the seacoast and vineyards. Of course, there are some cities and towns worth a look as well! Start your journey HERE.

This week’s Currency Spotlight turned, once again, to the euro. As the first former communist country to join the eurozone, Slovenia’s future is inextricably linked with that of Western Europe. Learn more HERE.
