The Julian Alps  are a region of Slovenia. They are part of The Alps and extend over the border into north-eastern Italy. They were named after Julius Caesar. They offer a wonderful alpine flair, that would have you swear you were in Upper Bavaria or Tyrol on a good day's hiking.

Slovene is the national language. Most can speak Serbo-Croatian as a result to the Yugoslav experience and many to most young people some English and or German. Italian also played - and continues to play - a role in the region now at the border with Italy, which belonged to that nation prior to WWII; as a result, many places have dual place names. German also had a historical minority role and today the Austrian and German tourists speak it.
