Protesters rally against border fence between Slovenia, Italy

NOVA GORICA, ŠKOFIJA - Protesters from the border city of Nova Gorica and its Italian neighbour Gorizia gathered in Nova Gorica's Europe Square on Friday evening to rally against the idea to set up new border fences as Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini paid a visit to Trieste. A rally was also held near the Škofije border crossing with Italy. The rally in Nova Gorica, where some 500 Slovenians and Italians gathered, was held under the slogan No More Borders. Another 100 people gathered in Škofije.

Radovljica hosting annual party of Slovenians living abroad

RADOVLJICA - Hundreds of Slovenians from abroad gathered in Radovljica for the main event of the annual get-together dubbed Welcome Home. A series of events has been organised since Wednesday, culminating today with a picnic in the Manor Park of the medieval town. About half a million people identifying themselves as Slovenians live outside Slovenia's borders, including in Italy (80,000), Austria (50,000), Hungary (5,000), Croatia (10,000), Germany (50,000), France (20,000) and the UK (5,000). The biggest community outside Europe is in the US (300,000), with many people identifying themselves as Slovenians also living in Canada, Argentina and Australia.

Average speed in Slovenian roads declining steadily

LJUBLJANA - The average speed recorded on Slovenian roads lowered in 2017 and 2018 compared to 2014 and 2015. The strictness of speed limits correlates to the number of violations, with the latter being more common at night. Drivers do not usually exceed the limit by more than 10 km/h, shows a study by the Traffic Safety Agency. Recorded speeds on highways and expressways do not vary depending on the day or night, while drivers on other roads are on average faster during the night.
