Koroška welcomes you as a safe and exciting destination

In the past week, Koroška launched a special campaign in partnership with the Slovenian Tourist Board, named "Vzemi si čas. Za Koroško. Moja Slovenija. (Take your time. For Carinthia. My Slovenia.)". The campaign's main message is that after recent floods, life in Koroška continues normally, and tourist services are operating smoothly. Also main transportation connections in Koroška have been fully restored.

Slovenj Gradec's city centre and its surroundings are renowned for their beauty and cultural significance. And let's not forget the Perger 1757 Honey Paradise, a place interwoven with nine generations of family tradition. For a refreshing summer experience, the Aqualatio Swimming Pool Complex awaits.

In Mežica Valley, a tour of the unique Underground Peca by train, or an unforgettable kayaking adventure, both awarded by the Slovenian Tourist Board with the prestigious Slovenia Unique Experience label. The village of Šentanel and the nearby villages above Prevalje offer breathtaking views and delightful cuisine from local tourist farms. In Ravne na Koroškem, you can cool off in the Olympic pool and take a leisurely stroll through the picturesque Castle Park.

The enchanting Ribnica na Pohorju is a paradise for hikers and cyclists alike.

While cycling opportunities in Koroška are somewhat reduced this year, the region remains an exceptional cycling destination with diverse options for enthusiasts.

Updates on the current status of the two most popular cycling routes:

  1. Drava Cycling Route

The Dravograd - Radlje ob Dravi stage is affected by a closure on the Dravograd - Trbonje section. A detour is arranged along the main road Dravograd - Maribor.

  1. Štrekna – Cycling Route through Mislinja Valley:

Despite flooding in parts of Štrekna, cyclists continue to enjoy the route. Caution is advised at the temporary bridge in Otiški Vrh. The popular Štrekna bus service is set to resume in September after a one-month break.

Pohorje offers safe mountain biking trails, including the mountain bike park in Jamnica above Prevalje.

Hiking trails in the western Pohorje region are generally accessible, but it's recommended to check with local tourist information offices.
