“AT FIRST, THE IDEA WAS TO KEEP SLOVENIA A SECRET.” Welcome to Slovenia, a pocket-size country which surprises with its vast diversity on every step. If you are eager to step out of the box and experience authenticity at its best, this is the country to put on your bucket list! P.S. Do it before everyone else discovers it! Slovenia is surely the most diverse European country. The crossroads between the Alps, Mediterranean and Karst, the Pannonian Plain and central Slovenia with the capital city of Ljubljana bring together history, cultures, natural beauties and resources from all over Europe. Nowhere else you will find such a diversity packed on such a tiny piece of land. And this makes it so attractive in any time of the year! Let us tell you a little story: at first, the idea was to keep Slovenia a secret. Not to tell anyone about it and to keep it all for ourselves. For the sake of beauty. It would be our little paradise on Earth, or our happy place, if you wish to call it this way. Everybody would live happily ever after, on their little piece of paradise, surrounded by pristine nature and breathtaking scenery. But… (there’s always a but...) Slovenia is so beautiful that it’s simply impossible to keep it secret. Once you visit, you want to tell everybody! It simply makes you passionate and evokes desire to return. So you can imagine how hard it is for the locals to keep their little secret. I.M.P.O.S.S.I.B.L.E. So, we decided to show Slovenia to the world - but keep it GREEN. This is why committed ourselves in developing sustainable tourism and promote Slovenia as a green, active and healthy 5-star destination. We believe that we have all the assets and conditions to make this happen. Numerous awards show that we are on the right track. And also the guests who just can’t stop praising the greenery that surrounds us… pristine, clean, green – these words are often heard when describing Slovenia... This media kit has been put together to inspire you to visit Slovenia. Browse through and step into the world of diversity. Discover what Slovenia has to offer. Then contact us and we will set up a wonderful trip for you, where diversity will follow you on every step. And then, you will understand why we wanted to keep it a secret. P.S. We are a team of young enthusiasts, who are all deeply in love with Slovenia and are eager to show it to you! We promise an unforgettable trip, where you will create longlasting memories.

TOP MEDIA ABOUT SLOVENIA “

Peppered with terracotta-tiled hamlets and gothic spires, and lined with grapevines stretching along gentle slopes, it would be easy to mistake the Vipava Valley for a rustic Tuscan idyll.

It’s something of a relief to meet other people at the source of the Soca, even if they prove utterly foolhardy. The water springs from a fissure in a granite cliff, settling in a secret pool before spilling over the brim and starting on its way to becoming a river.

At the very heart of Europe, at the meeting point of the Germanic world to the north, the Romance lands to the west, the Slavic Balkans to the south and Hungary to the east, is where Slovenian gastronomy evolved through history. Slovenian dishes are made with local ingredients: from produce grown in fields and gardens, to ingredients foraged in meadows and forests, salt harvested from the northern-most Adriatic salt pans, honey made by native bees, and wine that was a common drink around these parts even back in Antiquity, to healthy mineral waters that became the focal point of world-renowned spas centuries ago. Slovenia is a green, healthy and active country. Diverse gastronomy is therefore part of its culture. Slovenians preserve and cultivate it with the utmost respect for the environment and principles of sustainable development.

If you haven‘t tasted a slice of bread spread with zaseka, or a few slices of sausage and Bohinj, Kobarid or Bovec cheese, or a spoonfull of honey, you have never visited Slovenia‘s wonderful Alpine region. Grazing livestock, forests rich in forest fruits and wild game, buckwheat and grain fields, crystal-clear rivers and lakes teeming with trout, along with flower-dotted fields luring honeybees are the basic elements contributing to the culinary diversity of this part of Slovenia, which includes tasty varieties of buckwheat and maize žganci mash and buckwheat, millet and barley groats (kaša). Turnips stuffed with groats, cabbage with potatoes, apple sauce with kidney beans, boiled dough dumplings called krapi, stuffed with curds, millet groats or minced dried pears seasoned with melted lard, are local culinary specialities. The local marble trout, Bohinj trout and brook trout are rolled in buckwheat or maize trdinka flour, which is grown in Bohinj, and deep fried.

“Bakala„

The Mediterranean part of Slovenia has been under the culinary influence of the neighbouring Italian province of FriuliVenezia Giulia and the Trieste area for centuries. Each of the cultural and geographical areas (Brda, the lower Soča Valley, the Vipava Valley, the Karst, Brkini and the Karst Margin and the Slovenian part of Istria) has been in close contact with the neighbouring areas across the border, and this has enriched their otherwise frugal everyday and festive diet. The culture of pršut (also known as prosciutto) consumption started to develop particularly after the 19th century. Pršut is accompanied today by other bora wind-dried meat products. The influences of Slovenia‘s western neighbour are evident in pasta dishes, while local innovation or the innovation of individual households can be seen, in particular, in meat and vegetable stews and frtaljas – egg omelettes richly flavoured with aromatic herbs. The local cuisine has also always been associated with fish from the Adriatic. The area‘s culinary culture is supplemented by excellent wines, including some made from native vine varieties.


LJUBLJANA & CENTRAL SLOVENIA Ljubljana and Central Slovenia have long been at the crossroads of culinary influences from the North and the South. According to 17th century records, the locals treated themselves to fish from the Adriatic and Danube, and were among the first to enjoy early fruit from the south. Ljubljana egg dish and Ljubljana štruklji (a kind of rolled dumplings) were mentioned in 1868, which marked one of the earliest geographical indications in Europe. The same is also true for Ljubljana crepes with cottage cheese and tarragon. Prime vegetables were grown in vegetable gardens and fields on the outskirts of town, especially Ljubljana iceberg lettuce and corn salad. There is an ongoing tradition of recipes involving pickled cabbage and turnip, fried frog legs, exquisite beef soup with noodles, boiled and then sauteed potatoes, Šmarna gora ričet (barley porridge boiled with beans) and cooked beef tongue with horse radish sauce. Ljubljana cake tops the list of sweets, followed by a variety of štruklji, poticas and strudels.

“Prekmurska Gibanica„ Cake

The Pannonian area occupies the north-eastern and south-eastern part of Slovenia. Its culinary tradition is a combination of the cuisine along the Danube and that of the Pannonian plain, which is characterised by grain-based dishes. This is an area noted for its pogače, salty and sweet layered cakes, of which the best known is perhaps prekmurska gibanica. The goulash recipe has been taken from neighbouring Hungary. The locals call it bograč, after the container, i.e. the pot used for the preparation of this exquisite stew. A bograč festival takes place in Lendava every year. Pogače or gibanice, also called kvasenice, postržjače, krapci, and zlejvanke, vary according to the type of dough and fillings which include fresh cream, curd, cracklings, zaseka (minced bacon), poppy seeds, apples, and even cabbage and turnips. Winter is the time of pork meat and sausages. On that occasion, bujta repa, a stew made from pickled turnips, chopped pork meat with bones and millet, is served.

Potica, the delicious queen of festive dishes

52

Potica takes first place among the traditional festive pastries in Slovenia. It‘s a rolled pastry made of leavened dough filled with any of a great variety of fillings. Slovenian housewives also love baking poticas at non-festive times to pamper their loved ones. In households, grandmothers and mothers often have an important task to train their daughters and granddaughters in the skills of baking potica. It’s not easy to make one. You need just enough filling and just enough dough. More than 80 various types of fillings are known. The most characteristic Slovenian poticas are made with walnut, hazelnut, tarragon, poppy seed, cottage cheese and other fillings. Potica


Wines of Slovenia

White or red, lushly aromatic, strong, full-bodied or light, dry or sweet – no matter what kind of wine you prefer, you will discover your favourite variety in the three wine-growing regions of Slovenia.

Podravje

Primorska The vineyards basking in the Mediterranean sun produce excellent red wines, such as Refošk, Teran, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet. Gaining in prominence are the characteristic old white varieties, such as the local Rebula, Zelen, Pinela and many others. Visit the House of Refošk in Koper, the winegrowers in Slovenian Istria and Goriška Brda, Karst and the Vipavska areas, the Dobrovo castle cellar and other remarkable features of the Wine Roads.

Posavje The winegrowing region of Cviček and other white and red wines. The land on the right bank of the river Sava boasts Cviček – a registered wine with character, low in alcohol content and with a distinctive acidic taste. There are many who say it has beneficial effects on your health! In addition, the land offers other pleasantly light, rose and white wines. Visit the notable “repnice”, pits dug into quartz sand (Bizeljsko) and other first-class wineries, including those housed in the Rajhenburg Castle under Brestanica and other marvels!

TIME FOR APITOURISM On 20 May Slovenia and the rest of the world celebrated the inaugural World Bee Day. Slovenia is home not only to the Carniolan honey bee, but also to Anton Janša, the first beekeeping teacher and the pioneer of modern beekeeping. The love of bees in Slovenia dates far back into the past, and this passion has been passed from generation to generation for decades. Visit a beekeeping museum, or try the beekeeping-themed adventures and educational trips across Slovenia with trained api-tourist guides. The most popular experience at the moment, along with a honey massage and honey sauna, is the comprehensive Api well-being programme. Appreciate the calming buzz, air filled with the aroma of honey, and the feeling of warm wax and honey on your skin while you meditate and enjoy yourself.
