The project ‘Slovenia -European Region of Gastronomy 2021’ is focused on improving the quality of life. It encompasses opportunities for education in healthy and sustainable living and the sustainable development of gastronomy. It enhances the national promotion of cuisine and gastronomy and creates synergies with local environments and cultures.
Gastronomy is one of the key elements of the tourist offer and greatly contributes to the promotion, recognition and reputation of the state and tourism. In the field of gastronomic tourism, we want to achieve greater visibility and position itself as a top gastronomic region of Europe, while at the same time we want to further develop and strengthen the gastronomic offer of Slovenia. Slovenia is nominated for the title European Gastronomic Region in 2021. Read Slovenia’s Bid Book.
