The best places to be a digital nomad in Slovenia, Europe

Don’t listen to your friends and family, who say that Slovenia is not a good place for expats. I can tell you from personal experience that it’s an awesome place for a digital nomad or expat. The cost of living is still pretty low, it has cheaper yet better quality food than other western European capitals, a lot of nature and beautiful lakes (like Bled) are only two hours away by car, the people are super friendly and they still speak their own language.

Slovenia does not currently have a digital nomad visa, you could work in any of the EU countries that have a digital nomad visa, Croatia for example and then move over.

But what really makes Ljubljana great is that it’s so cheap! The cost of living is low, the food is delicious and the beer is cheap! You can easily live in an apartment for only 450€ a month and with a decent lifestyle you’ll be looking at spending as little as 1 euro per day.

Although Slovenia does not quite have a digital nomad visa just yet there are some options available.

2. Portoroz, Slovenia

Just minutes away from Croatia and 15min from Trieste, Italy this is certainly worth visiting. The problem is that it can get a bit boring during the winter but its a great all rounder and worth checking out if your looking for something more relaxing to work from with plenty of history close by.

3. Bled Slovenia

Bled is so beautiful, you might have to pinch yourself to believe it… You can't beat an early morning stroll around the lake itself - or perhaps a romantic dinner at a lakeside restaurant. From Bled Castle you can spy the island in the middle of the lake and visiting it by pletna is a highlight of any trip. The castle also hosts summer concerts on its grassy terrace. The island has several chapels and fortifications that date from Roman times and earlier. There's a small museum there as well as some lovely restaurants and cafes for coffee or lunch.

Bled is a pretty place, and enduringly popular.
