Think of Slovenia and you will be at once imported to a land of snow-capped peaks, turquoise green rivers and a pristine landscape! Agreed, very few things in the world beat the rural, rustic charm of this European country. But if you think that the greatness of the land is limited to its physical charms, hold on! This pretty country is address to some fine men and women who have perhaps earned more distinction than the wine of the land. Be it Olympic medalists, cartographers, film directors, opera singers, actuaries, historians, activists, geographers, comedians, philologists, painters, diplomats or politicians, the Slovenians have inscribed their greatness in the history of the world like very few other countries. Slovenians are mighty proud of their able sons and daughters of soil and are happy to show it off. Learn all about the famous Slovenians in their biographies below. Their timeline that captures the trivia and facts will fill you with utter admiration. So without any ado, read on.
