We were moving from Moscow, so at first Slovenia seemed like a big village to me - everything was close, half an hour by car to Italy, the same to Croatia in the other direction, and a couple of hours to Austria and Hungary. In my home country it took me longer to get to the country house on Friday than it took me from Ljubljana to Vienna now! At first I even missed Moscow's hustle and bustle, the constant need to run somewhere and do something, but then I got used to it. Here everything is very calm, not slow, but calm, unhurried, as if time has frozen and there is no need to rush anywhere.
And when the time came to register a company they did it in a couple of days without any stress, everything here is very well arranged for entrepreneurs and doing business, there are no problems or bureaucratic complications.
I like the style of local women - very simple, no heels or makeup, no one is trying to look somehow special. The huge number of people with disabilities in super-modern electric wheelchairs, good food in the stores, fresh fruits and vegetables all year round, very careful driving. But prices for utilities do not please: here electricity, water and gas are expensive, so it is a bit cold in the houses in winter - not higher than +20C, but outside it is not superminus - in our region, for example, there is no minus temperature at all.
