SLOVENIA Tourism’s first ever Australian workshop (see p1) has involved some serendipitous timing, coming on the evening before Valentine’s Day.
It’s possibly not a coincidence, because the country makes a big deal of the fact that it’s the only nation in the world to have the world LOVE in its name.
Delegates highlighted the mix of history, culture, nature and activity offered to Slovenian visitors, with the country located between Austria to the north, Italy to the west, Hungary in the North East and Croatia to the east and south.
Iconic attractions include the capital Ljubljana, Predjama Castle & Postojna Cave, the stunning Lake Bled, vineyards, forests & more.
