Discover Slovenia’s secret corners committed to sustainable tourism 

The European Destinations of Excellence Network or EDEN for short is a European network of relatively unknown, but substantively exceptional places and regions that invite tourists with new experiences and discoveries. The European Destinations of Excellence are boutique and mysterious and committed to sustainable and responsible tourism. They are selected within the framework of a topic determined by the European Commission every two years. The network includes seven hidden gems of Slovenia that are waiting to be uncovered and experienced. Let them charm you. Explore their rich natural and cultural heritage and breathe in the freshness of green nature.

 

Meet Slovenia’s seven destinations of excellence

Slovenia prides itself on exceptionally picturesque nature and diverse culture and flavours, which is seen also in the diversity of the European Destinations of Excellence.

 

Koper

Feel the culturally and historically rich old town centre of Koper and the varied green countryside surrounding it.

Brda Hills

Try local delights and noble wines saturated with energy of the sun and love of the local people for their soil and tradition.

Idrija 

Follow the story of Idrija, where lace is interwoven with mercury and where new ideas are borne from the rich cultural heritage.

Valley of the River Soča 

Take part in the wave of active adventures in the Valley of the River Soča, one of the most magnificent Alpine rivers, which has been writing unique stories for centuries with its emerald reflections: from folk tales and legends to memories of the atrocities of the First World War.

Solčavsko

Stop time and seek refuge in the embrace of pristine nature in Solčavsko, which excites with its impressive mountain scenery, harmony of three glacial valleys (Logar Valley, Matkov Kot Valley and Robanov Kot Valley) and the hospitality of the locals, who live in accordance with surrounding nature.

Laško

Health and well-being, brewing tradition and beekeeping are the pride of Laško, the friendly destination accessible to everyone. Swim in Slovenia’s warmest river, stir your imagination with fairies and the devil, Green George and the folk hero Peter Klepec, and feast your eyes on the natural and cultural particularities of the region situated by the River Kolpa.

  • It’s the possibility of having all my dreams come true that makes my life so beautiful - Yet, it doesn’t mean that I don’t get to miss some certain moments like this one. In the middle of Laikipia - I left my heart ♥️
  • We’ll always find our way back to each other 💫
  • There is a sandstorm in Dubai at the moment, so I decided to look back at my photos from @constancehotels during my trip to Mauritius 🇲🇺Also, a few of you asked me about the weather, and how the forecast shows that it’s always raining in Mauritius... don’t look at that! The forecast was wrong all week! We had sunny days and clear skies up until the day I left ☀️ So my rule of thumb is: Don’t look at the forecast 😊
  • Last year, I did a little sailing through the Balkans from Montenegro - Have you been yet? It’s beautiful!!! ☀️
If you are planning a trip to there this summer, I’ve posted an itinerary list of things to do in Montenegro! Link in bio!
  • Summer is approaching and I can’t wait! Throwback on this Sunday to my last summer in Croatia! Have you planned your summer vacation yet?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past few days... it’s a good reminder on how I need to listen to my body. Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
  • Mauritius and all its beauty 🇲🇺☀️ @constancehotels
  • The hardest kind of resistance is when you’re resisting yourself. When your heart wants something and your brain prevents it. When you feel like sometimes you want to explode but you don’t. Its not always pretty but you keep going because, everything that is meant to be yours, will be yours.

  • 6am wake up call 🇲🇺 @Constancehotels  #myconstancemoment
  • Good morning! It’s actually raining today but, here is the beautiful day I checked into @constancehotels Prince Maurice. I tried to aim for a grand entrance here 😊 Have a beautiful day everyone!
  • Sailed across the islands until we reached the Ile aux Phare built in 1864 and had to see how it looked from above!!
  • She never wants to leave she says, and asks me every day how much longer are we staying in Mauritius @shangrilamauritius ☀️
I totally get it - We even had chocolate wrap massages together and she slept through it all! 😂
