There’s a small little country buried just south of the Austrian Alps and just north of the dense forests and stunning beaches of Croatia which often is overlooked by travelers from across the globe. Never in a million years would I have predicted a country in former Yugoslavia to become one of my all-time favorite countries to visit, but alas, it is. Slovenia has got to be one of the most underrated and absolutely incredible countries I’ve ever been able to visit, and I of all the countries in Europe I’ve seen, this one takes the cake with having something for everyone!
(Huffington) “Ljub-what?” a friend asked when I mentioned I was headed to Slovenia’s small capital, Ljubljana. The tongue-twister stems from the Slovenian word for “beloved” — an apt name for an often overlooked European country, and its walkable main city, subtly sandwiched in between Austria, Italy, Hungary and Croatia.
(NY Times) Evening was fast approaching in the Slovenian town of Piran when the chimes of the Chiesa di San Giorgio reminded me that the piano concerto was about to begin. As the sun slanted across the Adriatic, I hurried toward the vast Tartini Square — named for Giuseppe Tartini, the Baroque-era Italian violinist and composer — past outdoor cafes, where boisterous groups of Slovenians were devouring Balkan sausages and toasting one another — “Na zdravje!” (“To your health!”) — with local Lasko beer.
(supconnect.com) Slovenia is a miniature, picturesque country located in the heart of Europe between the Alps and the Adriatic sea. Due to its untouched nature and extraordinary geographic diversity it is often referred to as the beauty-spot of Europe, a perfect place for stand up paddling.
When it comes to super yacht provisioning, flowers always play a really important role.
That is why we have picked partners, that have the ability to be flexible and able to deliver even the most incredible flower arrangments at any time – on a relatively short notice.

We are here for you!
We are the only yacht crewing agent, dealing mostly with slovenian crewmembers.
The benefits of employing a slovenian crewmember are:
- High education level (Deck and engineering officers all have commercial tickets – some with university diploma, Interior mainly have a hospitality diploma)
- High level of profesionalism
- Good knowledge of english language (most speak more than one foreign language)
- EU citizens – no schengen visa needed
Every member that wishes to apply to work with us, needs to go through a detail screening of experience and personality. Since we are a Slovenia based agency, we make all the interviews in person. We want to be 100% sure, that the people we employ – actually reflect well also when they start the job.
(Huffington Post) “I’m normal”, replied our driver when we asked him how he was on that warm afternoon in Slovenia back in May. Not your usual response, I thought, but it fits Slovenia right to a T. “I’m normal” is a perfectly normal way to feel there..
We are able to organize the bunkering services for your boat. The fuel for yachts is high quality and duty free – and the delivery can be organized on the anchorage and also alongside. We can take care of it all.
(NY Times) The subject was the Bora — the ferocious northern wind that wreaks seasonal havoc on the western Slovenian region known as the Vipava Valley, where we had just arrived — and my friend expressed disappointment that we had just missed out on the chance to experience it. “It sounds so impressive,” she said.
