Slovenia is a very interesting country. I would describe it as having orderly roads, parking lots and beaches —
like in Austria — and the enthusiasm of Italian culture. It is particularly visible in restaurants and pubs.
Slovenians are very hospitable, but during dives in this lovely country, you will meet people from all over Europe,
and even all over the world.
The coastline of Slovenia spans just 44 kilometers on the Adriatic Sea. Unfortunately, we cannot always expect
good visibilities underwater (as is the case in Croatia), but we can count on a few to a dozen or so meters
in summer. Dives are most often carried out by boat, and destinations are not too far away, only a few wrecks
require a little bit longer boat journeys.
During the dives that are close to the shore, especially during the day, there is little likelihood of having
something very interesting surprise you. You will mostly just encounter smaller fish that are common in
the Mediterranean. However, the same places at night can be much more interesting. During one dive you may meet
several different species of crabs. And these crab can be brave, which can be clearly demonstrated when you swim
too close to them. They lift their plier-like claws valiantly, and at the same time retreat slowly, ready to use
their weapons at any moment. During night dives, Cotylorhiza tuberculata (Egg Jellyfish) are especially spectacular.
Illuminated in the depths, they look like something from out of this world, especially when smaller silver fish swim
