NATURAL. VERY HOSPITABLE!

National parks, regional parks and nature parks; nature reserves and natural monuments; areas of outstanding biodiversity – all of these are examples of nature conservation. Over a tenth of Slovenia falls into specially protected areas, while more than a third of the national territory is protected as part of the Natura 2000 network, which protects the habitats of endangered plant and animal species important for the European Union as a whole. Tourist areas that concern themselves with sustainable development in connection with areas of this kind are the subject of special attention from the European Union within the context of the EDEN 2009 project.

In Slovenia the title of European Destination of Excellence, on the theme of tourism and protected areas, was won by SOLČAVSKO: THREE VALLEYS IN HARMONY. The other finalists were LAND OF LIVING WATER and KOZJANSKI PARK.

The Project was partly financed by the EU.
