Tourism and Regeneration of Physical Sites


Former mines, monasteries, castles, museums, and adventure sites in buildings, where you would not expect them – Slovenia is replete with such diversities! Revival of immovable cultural heritage creates new surprises for visitors, who want to experience the green country in a new, surprising way.

As a site, which connects its attractiveness with heritage enriched with new tourist experiences, IDRIJA, the town with the former world-renowned mercury mine, received the title of the European Destination of Excellence in Slovenia for 2011!

You’re also welcome to visit the finalists: mines in Velenje and Mežica and the Žiče Charterhouse in the mysterious valley of St. John the Baptist.
