Sports tourism is undoubtedly the future of an industry that is very important for Slovenia, and also has significant growth potential. Sport and tourism complement each other in a unique way. I have seen with my own eyes on countless occasions that Slovenian athletes are the best ambassadors for our beautiful country, along with sporting events that attract large crowds. Each of these events is always a great opportunity to promote our places, our culture, our cuisine... and Slovenia really has a lot to be proud of. The link between sport and tourism exponentially strengthens each of these two extremely important industries, and so we must actively work to ensure that this link is as strong as possible.
