30 Years of Slovenia's Independence
Triumphant Year of 1991
Developing and raising awareness of the core values and the most important events of contemporary Slovenian history is especially important in times of crisis.
We must not forget that bold decisions, such as the adoption of the independence act in 1991 on the basis of the plebiscite of 1990, the formation of our own army, the declaration of independence on 25 June 1991, the victory in the war for Slovenia and the withdrawal of the Yugoslav national army on 25 October 1991, have preserved the existence of the Slovenian state. Such achievements cannot be taken for granted.
Prime Minister Janez Janša: "It is in the nature of man to dream, and in the nature of a free man to have the means to make those dreams come true."
Alfred Brežnik: Slovenia exceeded all expectations and has become a commendable and successful country, an example worthy of imitation
