It is also one of the most forested regions of Europe, with oak, beech, spruce, fir and pine dominating its ecology.

Its largest city is the capital, Ljubljana and Slovene is the language for the vast majority of its population. Other minority languages include Hungarian and Italian. The majority of its population identifies as Catholic.
