Slovenia Country History

The history of Slovenia related the period from the 5th Century BC at the present times. In the Early Bronze Age, Proto-Illyrian tribes settled an area dimension from present-day Albania to the city of Trieste. In 1991, it gained independence from Yugoslavia, and today it is a modern state and it is a member of the European Union and NATO. In ancient times Celts and Illyrians are the citizens of the country of present-day Slovenia. A well-developed Illyrian population existed as far north as the upper Sava valley in Slovenia. Illyrian friezes discovered near the present-day Slovene city of Ljubljana represent ritual sacrifices, feasts, battles, sporting events, and other activities. In the 1st century, The Roman Empire established its rule in the region, after 200 years of fighting with the local tribes. The first phase of Slavic settlement in the boundary of modern Slovenia is dated around the year 550 and it is originated in the area of modern Moravia. The second phase of Slavic settlement took place after Lang bards had withdrawn into Northern Italy in 568. Slavs finally occupied the depopulated country with the help of their Aver overlords. Western and Southern Slavic tribes were united under Samos's Tribal Union, which may have extended from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic Sea Between 623-626. It collapsed due to the death of Samoa and the disconnection of any existing link between western and southern Slavs. The mediaeval author may well have confused "Carantania" with Corundum near the Slovak border; it is a mix-up of similar names not uncommon in the middle Ages.

The independence of Slovenia came as a result of the rise of nationalism among the Southern Slav nations and the dissolution of Yugoslavia resulting from it. In 1929, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes was renamed as the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Slovenia became part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, declared on 29 November 1945. On December 23, 1990, 88% of Slovenia's population voted for independence in a plebiscite, and on June 25, 1991, the Republic of Slovenia declared its independence. On June 26, 1991 Croatia and Slovenia recognized each other as independent states. In January 1990, the League of Communists broke up on the lines of the individual Republics.
