Let me give you some facts about the country. Slovenia?s history can be traced way back to the 8th century, even though the country has an impressive modern political entity. Maybe it is because it has been independent since 1991. In its history, its territory was a part of so many different state formations that includes the Frankish Kingdom, the Roman and a lot more.
The 1st people that were recognized to have settled in here were the Jama Cave in Inner Carniola and there is an estimated 250,000 year old material were recovered here where two of them are stone tools and this was during the last glacial period.
