If you're at a business dinner, don't discuss business unless your host
approaches the topic first. Meals are meant to be a time to socialize and get to
know each other, not to weigh the conversation down with discussions about money
or a looming deal. In these business situations, the inviter is expected to pick
up the bill, however in more information situations, the bill is divided evenly.
Many sit down restaurants include a service charge, but if not, when eating out
you should tip about 10% of the bill.
Slovenia has nearly every beverage available including juices, teas, coffees, and
milk. There are also soft drinks, including all popular international brands.
Slovenia has found itself in between a number of great alcohol-producing countries
so has had little need to produce their own drinks. High quality beers from
Austria and wines from Italy are popular, however
the locals have still found a few great locations to produce their own wine, but
not at the same quantity as a country like Italy. International wines, beers, and
hard liquors are also widely available.
Generally speaking, the tap water is safe to drink in Slovenia,
but check with locals for any particular regional differences. Also, many people
may have troubles adjusting to the local tap water, as it will most certainly be
different from what your system is used to.
