The Slovenian Union of America can also be found along route 66 in Joliet Illinois. There you can learn all about the history of Slovenia, all of the amazing food they cook to eat, and more. If this is a part of your heritage, you can stop by there and see where your genealogy lines up with other families from that part of the world. Also take some time to stop by the museum so that you can see all the great artifacts they have from the Slovenian culture. Whether you are interested or not, it is definitely a beautiful and historic sight to see, since it was founded back in 1973.
