Green suits them nicely

Slovenia is wrapped in green. Almost two thirds of its surface is covered with large forests. Even cities have a beating green heart. In order to preserve this green paradise for our descendants, several destinations aspire to have sustainable development and to preserve the natural and cultural heritage. The family of destinations carrying the Slovenia Green mark is expanding every year. There are currently 55 destinations in Slovenia boasting the sustainability mark, of which 18 are gold, 17 silver, and 20 bronze.
