The green playground of Europe

Slovenia is small, but extremely diverse. As many as 4 totally different regions are nicely packed on a really small area: the Alpine Slovenia, the Mediterranean Slovenia, Ljubljana and surroundings and Thermal Pannonian Slovenia. Thus, Slovenia offers a huge variety of outdoor activities, 365 days a year. In fact, nature is just around the corner for most of people in Slovenia. And this is one of the main reasons why sports is written in Slovenian genes. Be it hiking, biking, white-water rafting, kayaking, sailing, or in winter skiing, cross-country skiing etc., Slovenians like everything connected with sports, cheering enthusiasm is as amazing as the success of our athletes itself. We invite you to close your eyes and embark on an imaginative journey to a country with a green, active and healthy heart.

Global Leading Destination in Responsible and Green Tourism

Slovenia is considered one of the greenest and safest countries in Europe. Shortly after the first wave of the pandemic had started in Slovenia, the Slovenian Tourist Board introduced the GREEN & SAFE label, which communicates responsible travel standards of Slovenian tourism and offers an upgrade of our sustainable practices with a new responsibility to local communities and guests. This is our commitment to responsible, green and safe tourism in Slovenia. For this purpose, a handbook to help the tourism industry with comprehensive and united guidelines in adapting the safe protocols was launched and we're proud that the WTTC has recognized the Green & Safe label in its 'Safe travels' programme.
