Welcome to green and safe Slovenia!
I know why I choose Slovenia as my holiday destination
Slovenia was the first European country to have declared the end of the COVID-19 epidemic. We managed to do that because we took timely and appropriate action to combat the spread of the disease. We are ready to invite you back to green and safe Slovenia. For years we have strived to act in a sustainable and responsible manner towards its wonderful green nature and rich local cultural heritage, setting an example for others with our actions. You will feel safe here at every step. Not least because we maintain high hygiene standards, making sure that you come to a healthy and safe environment. Our commitment to creating safe holiday conditions was captured in the Green & Safe logo. Now is the time to discover why Slovenia is worth a visit.
We have implemented strict hygiene requirements and health protection recommendations
The measures and requirements issued and directed by the National Institute of Public Health based on the epidemiological situation apply throughout Slovenia. The hospitality sector carefully carries out all recommendations to prevent infections. In this way, we protect our visitors, employees, and the local community. You can also do your part to ensure a safe and healthy environment for everyone by following the relevant recommendations for preventing the spread of infections. Thank you for respecting the health protection measures, requirements and recommendations.
Slovenia is one of the safest countries in the world
We are proud that Slovenia has been considered one of the safest countries in the world for years. It ranked eighth on the 2019 Global Peace Index, which is the most recent one published. The reputation of a safe country is maintained by responsible behaviour to preserve health at the national and local levels. Bohinj is included among the destinations placed on the list of the 20 safest European tourist destinations after the COVID-19 pandemic by European Best Destinations.
Striving for a sustainable future
Slovenia was the first country to receive the Global Green Destination title. Our commitment to the sustainable development of Slovenian tourism is demonstrated by numerous international awards, such as Best of Europe 2020 at the 2020 Sustainable Top 100 Destination Awards. More than 50 tourist destinations under the SLOVENIA GREEN umbrella brand meet the Green Destinations Standard criteria prescribed by the GSTC (Global Sustainable Tourism Council). Many providers also meet a series of other criteria prescribed by certification systems for acquiring various logos related to quality and sustainability in tourism.
We love to live an active, healthy, and green life
The Alps, the Mediterranean, and the Pannonian Plain – Slovenia is the only European country where you can find all three. More than 22 thousand animal and plant species live here. Nearly 60% of Slovenia's surface is covered by forests. Almost 40% of its territory lies in protected areas. Green nature is only a step away from any city centre. Do not miss the opportunity for an outdoor activity!
We swear by boutique and unique experiences
In Slovenia, you can experience, visit, feel or taste something new and unique every day of the year! We are a country of unique experiences, free from mass tourism. Its diverse landscape offers a wide variety of outdoor activities; round trips around the country allow you to taste a different authentic local cuisine in every region. In a country known for healthy waters and spas, you can easily enjoy a green, active, healthy and safe holiday experience.
Now is the time to act in a responsible, safe and sustainable manner.
We realise that now, more than ever, the trust and safety of both guests and tourism workers are extremely important. We maintain and increase trust in the "I feel Slovenia" brand by establishing responsible travel standards in tourism. We have joined them into a new GREEN&SAFE logo to designate and highlight superior hygiene standards, protocols and sustainable recommendations for tourist service providers and destinations. Through activities based on safety, responsibility and sustainability, we increase our guests' trust in Slovenia as a green and safe tourist destination.
