Slovenia - European Region of Gastronomy 2021
Slovenia has been named European Region of Gastronomy (ERG) 2021 and will continue to focus heavily on culinary adventures in 2021. Discover why Slovenia is Europe’s new food capital - from our amazing local producers to our Michelin-starred chefs. As the Slovenian proverb says, ‘In Slovenia, love comes through the stomach!’
The 2017–2021 Strategy for the Sustainable Growth of Slovenian Tourism defines gastronomy as one of the ten leading tourist products since it enables the development of excellent experiences and contributes to the dispersion of tourist flows and deseasonalization of tourism, which are also considered our central objectives for the future.
Condé Nast Traveller: Slovenia is Best 2021 Destination
Numerous foodies, eminent gastronomic guides and media know that the food in Slovenia is superb. Slovenian cuisine evidently enchanted one of the most prestigious and influential publications in the tourism sector, Condé Nast Traveller, which placed Slovenia at the very top of its list of destinations worth visiting in 2021. In addition to gastronomy, this tourism giant was also impressed by Slovenia’s iconic images and the harmony between people and nature.

Expo 2021 Dubai and Presidency of the Council of the EU
The Slovenia Pavilion at Expo 2021 Dubai will once again be an amazing floating forest, highlighting the country’s position as a green, diverse, smart and sustainable gem in the heart of Europe. Themed the ’Smart Green Cloud’, the pavilion will be made of glass, steel, and water to give visitors the impression they are surrounded by a forest suspended in the air.
2021 will also see Slovenia hold the Presidency of the Council of the EU for just the second time. All EU Member States take it in turns to hold the presidency of the Council of the EU for a period of six months and Slovenia has this honour during the second half of 2021. Our key role during this time will be to manage the work of the Council and we are currently working closely with Germany and Portugal to ensure a smooth transition alongside previous hosts.
