Inspired by the Adriatic Journal: Boutique tourism in Slovenia that is definitely worth a try

Slovenia recently opened the doors of its first boutique hotel that is in line with the country’s green tourism strategy: a five-star Villa Planinka in Jezersko was restored by Marjan Batagelj, who also manages the Karst subterranean attraction, the Postojna cave.

Šarec and his party top most popular lists

While conservative parties are becoming increasingly popular across Europe, in Slovenia they are losing ground, with the centrist party LMŠ continuing to strengthen its position in the country. Delo’s Barbara Hočevar reported in the paper yesterday that the popularity of Slovenia’s Prime Minister Marjan Šarec continues to grow together with the support for the party […]


There is room for more Slovenian companies in the Balkans

Western Balkans is a traditionally important market for Slovenia with companies from the country already boasting a strong presence. However, Dr Cerar believes there is still room for growth and new businesses should get the government’s support to enter the region’s market. Among other top national priorities remains a strong Europe and good transatlantic relations […]


Economic diplomacy as a service to businesses

In times of dynamic globalisation, rapid change and ever growing international competition, Slovene diplomacy helps its companies go global. The Slovenian foreign minister dr.

It serves as much more than simply […]
