Slovenia, a former republic of Yugoslavia, declared its independence in 1991 and managed to extricate itself from the wreckage of Titoland virtually unscathed. Many people consider it more a part of Central Europe than the Balkans; it lies west of the fateful boundary between the Pannonian plain and the central uplands that became the border between the eastern and western halves of the Roman Empire 1,500 years ago and has been a zone of conflict ever since. I visited Slovenia in 1976 and remember Ljubljana, the capital, as a charming, low-rise city. I imagine it has changed a great deal.
