Slovenia is exceptional for its diversity of terrain, with four major natural units merging in this small part of Central Europe: the Alps, Dinaric Alps, Pannonian Basin and the Mediterranean. The variety of rock strata, topography and climate, plus their mutual influences, give rise to exceptional diversity of soil and biology.

Slovenia ranks among the better-watered and largely spring-fed countries, with a dense river network, a rich aquifer system, and significant karstic underground watercourses. At the same time, four linguistic and cultural regions meet in this territory: Slavic, Germanic, Romance and Finno-Ugric (Hungarian).
