SUBSIDIZED STUDENT MEALS (STUDENT COUPONS)

Slovenia is the only country in Europe with coupons systems. This means that you can eat a nice student meal in certain restaurants in Maribor or everywhere in Slovenia for 2,5 EUR on average. The rest of the meal is subsidized by Slovenian Government. Recently the system was digitalized and you have two options for that: you can use your mobile phone with Slovenian number (you'll be able to get SIM card from ESN or mobile operator shops) or you order a special card which cost 15 EUR and you receive it within 5 working days.
