This game is prone to cheating. Although I decimated it down to Croatia/Montenegro/Slovenia..

I also think it's Slovenia, cos it looks like Austria but has those...caves or whatever they are called.

Yes, it is Slovenia, of course.
1. Triglav, part of the Julian Alps, present on the Slovenian coat of arms
2. The coastal city of Piran
3. The capital, Ljubljana
4. Postojna Cave, a famous cave
5. A famous inhabitant of the famous cave, an olm, endemic species that was discovered in Slovenia.
Some sources say that people first thought that olms were baby dragons. :)
