As with any country it depends on the part of the country you are talking about. Although Slovenia is a small country (only around 20,000 square kilometres) it has 3 distict climates. Along the coast near the cities of Koper and Trieste (Italy) there is a Mediterraneum climate with hot summers and mild winters. In the mountain areas in the north near the cities of Ljubljana (the capital) and the resort of Bled the climate is Alpine but temperatures in summer often rise above 30c. The remainder of the country has a continental climate with hot summers and often freezing winters.
