The ranking of countries in terms of security was based on five criteria, and on the data from the EuroHealth Consumer Index, the Global Peace Index 2021 and Eurostat.

Safety and health are more important to tourists than ever before due to increased concerns with regards to coronavirus. When choosing destinations, tourists ask for safe and trustworthy destinations. Slovenia has always been one of the safest European countries, and this year the Global Peace Index ranked it even higher, i.e. fifth place globally and fourth in Europe. Slovenia has further upgraded its good position as a safe destination by creating Responsible Travel Standards for Slovenian Tourism, which in Slovenian tourism we communicate with the GREEN & SAFE label, which showcases that we act responsibly, safely and sustainably. The response of providers in tourism to the label is very good, as it already used by 1000 providers.
