    Hello My name is Veronika and I am a 58 year old woman both Australian & Slovene. I am coming to Ljubljana to study Slovene language at the University. I am looking for a place to stay over the quiet months from 7th September this year to 29th January next year. Are you able to offer me a longer-term rental? I am looking at a budget of 300-400 Euros per month. Many Thanks Veronika Plaznik
