The article presents data acquired in the research about spatial identification of the youth that was performed on a chosen sample of Slovenian secondary-school pupils four years ago. We wanted to compare their answers with the opinions of population of students. In the year 2002, we thus ran a survey at the Faculty of Education, University of Maribor, where we asked randomly chosen students exactly the same questions that had been administered to the secondary-school pupils two years earlier. Beside the comparative analysis of opinion, the article also presents the basic characteristics of national stereotypes, which we can trace in geographical education.
