Google Map France to Slovenia

Toulouse, France (population 770,000), France's fourth largest city, is located in the Midi-Pyrénées region of south-west France, midway between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. This beautiful city is known for its distinctive rose color brick buildings (hence the nickname: la ville rose) and has a very Mediterranean feel and climate.  Toulouse has long served as a center of commerce, culture and education. The city was a resting place for religious pilgrims traveling to Spain as early as the 11th century. The University of Toulouse dates to the 13th century and is the second oldest in France. Today over 100,000 students attend institutions of higher education, including our partner ESC-Toulouse, making the city a highly desirable location for business. The city is now home to Europe's aerospace industry and headquarters for Airbus Industrie. The many high-tech firms in the region complement the area's thriving agri-business.

Ljubljana, Slovenia
Situated between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, the city of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is classified as a mid-sized European city, but it has preserved its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere while providing all the facilities of a modern capital.   It is the political and cultural heart of the Slovenian nation, safe and particularly charming in summer. Distances between places in Slovenia are short, which makes Ljubljana a perfect base for exploring  Slovenia's diverse beauty.
