Security Alert – U.S. Embassy Ljubljana, Slovenia (December 11, 2023)

Location: Slovenia, countrywide


Event:  During the holiday season there is the potential for increased crime and acts of terrorism throughout the region.


While U.S. Embassy Ljubljana does not have any credible information of threat to U.S. citizens or interests in Slovenia, we want to remind U.S. citizens that during the holiday season there is always the potential for increased crime and acts of terrorism throughout the region.  Planned attacks and criminal activity often occur in crowded public locations such as holiday markets, shopping malls, airports, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, transportation hubs, schools, and other areas frequented by tourists.  Public events, such as demonstrations, holiday events, and celebratory gatherings are also at a higher risk for violence.


Actions to Take:

  • Exercise vigilance at holiday festivals and events, places of worship, and locations with large crowds.
  • Review your personal security plans.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Monitor local media for updates.
