Culture and etiquette
Slovenes are welcoming people, who are only too willing to help tourists. The predominant religion is Catholicism, and respectful attire (no sleeveless tops or above-the-knee skirts) should be worn inside churches and around religious sites. Although tipping is not obligatory, it is polite to round the bill up to a convenient figure in restaurants and when taking a taxi.
