Yes, although that's an adjective (and written with small "s").

So, Slovenia=Slovenija and Slovenian=Slovensko?

Does "Ljubljanska" (dish made with a steak folded with ham and cheese, known with that name in Friuli Venezia Giulia) means "from Ljubljana"? (Like Londiner=from London)

"Ljubljanska" is female adjective od Ljubljana. for instance, Ljubljanska banka is Ljubljanian Bank, since bank is female noun in Slovenian. isn't it, Verso?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovene_Lands We use it in a historical context, because the word Sloveni(j)a didn't exist before 1840s.

Small "s" (slovensko). That's, if you mean adjective (masculine - slovenski, feminine - slovenska, neuter - slovensko). It's also an adverb. But as a noun (a Slovenian (person)) it's Slovenec (a Slovenian man) or Slovenka (a Slovenian woman).

Word SLOVENIJA was first used by some russian guy in 19. century and then we adopted it. (43:40)

Its important to know that slovene people were through entire history under some other nations, and we have survive as a nation only because of our common language, traditions and our persistence.
And in that matter word SLOVENIJA combine/merge all slovenes from different historical lands into one unitary nation.

This is the video which is representing some minorities in Slovenia and where our historian speaks about our country name Slovenija

Oh, I think endonyms are cute.

Seriously, I have no problem with using, in Germany, German names for cities that have German names. The exonym would be appropriate too, of course; my preference would be for both. I understand I'm expressing that opinion from the vantage point of a continent where that issue, as a practical matter, comes up remarkably rarely.

OK, 125 km is very small for this thread... but it is part of a trekking path (impossible to do ridding by bike, for instance)

And 125 km in those mountains means about four days walking...

Tx in advance
