At the very heart of Europe, at the meeting point of the Germanic world to the north, the Romance lands to the west, the Slavic Balkans to the south and Hungary to the east, is where Slovenian gastronomy evolved through history. Slovenian dishes are made with local ingredients: from produce grown in fields and gardens, to ingredients foraged in meadows and forests, salt harvested from the northern-most Adriatic salt pans, honey made by native bees, and wine that was a common drink around these parts even back in Antiquity, to healthy mineral waters that became the focal point of world-renowned spas centuries ago. Slovenia is a green, healthy and active country. Diverse gastronomy is therefore part of its culture. Slovenians preserve and cultivate it with the utmost respect for the environment and principles of sustainable development.
