Green boutique tourism, sustainable, responsible and inclusive business and conduct, and added value for all who are involved in tourism. Responsibility to tourists, employees and the local community.

This is the vision for Slovenia as a tourist destination that has been developed and realised by Msc. Maja Pak, the director of the Slovenian Tourist Board (STO), with a dedicated team and more than twenty years of experience of working in tourism. "Tourism is an exceptionally dynamic field in which eight-hour workdays do not exist. I enjoy my work, it fills me with energy, positivity and new ideas," Pak says of her daily commitments. Numerous international recognitions and awards, exceptional media exposure and numerous successfully implemented projects in recent years attest to Slovenia becoming not only a globally recognised tourist destination of extraordinary experiences, but also a trendsetter and a provider of best practices in the development of sustainable tourism. This has earned it the title of green destination, the first in the world, and enabled it to become an international example of best practice in the promotion of the development and implementation of sustainable tourism.Sustainable and digital breakthroughs are among the key priorities of the STO for competitive, successful and resilient tourism.
