Destination Spotlight: Exploring Vibrant Host Destinations of the Tour of Slovenia

As many as 46 Slovenian destinations will host five stages of this year's edition of the Tour of Slovenia. To enhance the experience, the Slovenian Tourist Board (STB) has distributed over 22,000 green "I Feel Slovenia" flags, adding to the excitement of the race for the green jersey.

Starting today, June 12, the race kicks off from Murska Sobota and finishes in Ormož, taking cyclists through the scenic Pannonian plains and into neighbouring Croatia, Hungary, and Austria. This marks the first time in 20 years that the race links up all these countries.
