Solčava District awarded the title of European Destination of Excellence

The Solčava District, with the tourism product "The Solčava District – Three Valleys in Unison" has been selected as this year's EDEN destination.

The title of European Destination of Excellence will be conferred on the winning destination at a ceremony in Solčava in June. The destination will be presented at the European level for the first time during the 8th European Tourism Forum in Brussels, where it will officially receive the EDEN title from the European Commission.
At the end of January the Slovenian Tourist Board (STB) published, for the second year, a call for entries for the title of European Destination of Excellence 2009. This year's selection process was aimed at emerging destinations oriented towards sustainable tourism that have successfully developed tourism products on the basis of protected areas. Nine destinations entered the competition. After examining the entries, the expert commission selected three finalists: Tolmin, Kobarid (Land of Living Water); Kozje, Bistrica ob Sotli and Krško (Kozjanski Park); and Solčava (The Solčava District). The expert commission visited all three candidate destinations as part of the final selection process. All of them have achieved European standards in the field of sustainable development and proved that economic and social factors as well as natural and cultural elements are an integral part of the development of the destination.
The expert commission was unanimous in choosing the Solčava District with the product "Three Valleys in Unison" as the winner of the EDEN 2009 title. The product of the winning destination is designed as a three-day programme and involves a series of adventure activities in connection with observing nature, admiring natural sights and learning about the cultural heritage of the area.
