The tourist book and website Rough Guides has created a new list of the 20 most beautiful countries in the world. In first place was Scotland, while Slovenia was placed in the golden centre, and the rankings were rounded up by Vietnam. The chart was co-created by portal readers, who could vote for their favourite country and who put Slovenia in 11th place. "Small but mighty," the readers gave as the description of Slovenia, adding that it was adorned with mountains, forests, lakes, shores, old towns, friendly people and good food.
Slovenia is proud of its green character, countless possibilities for active retreats, and wealth of healthy waters, re-energizing everything and everyone in the country between the Alps, the Mediterranean Sea, the Pannonian Plain and the mysterious Karst. You can enjoy the flavours of 24 gastronomic regions and 14 wine districts, over 10,000 kilometres of well-marked hiking trails and 8,000 kilometres of cycling routes.
