The territory, located in southern Central Europe

The Slavic (Slavic languages), Germanic (Germanic languages), Romance (Romance languages), and Hungarian (Hungarian language) languages meet here.

Historically, the current territory of Slovenia was part of many different state formations, including the Roman Empire and the Holy Roman Empire, followed by the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Austria-Hungary). In October 1918, the Slovenes exercised self-determination for the first time by co-founding the internationally unrecognized (list of states with limited recognition) State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs, which merged that December with the Kingdom of Serbia into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (renamed Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1929). During World War II, Slovenia was occupied and annexed by Germany (Nazi Germany), Italy (Kingdom of Italy), Croatia (Independent State of Croatia), and Hungary (Kingdom of Hungary (1920–46)).
