Tourism - Koper

<p><strong>Culture and tourism in the EDEN network</strong></p><p>The EDEN (European Destinations of Excellence) first began to be developed in the European Union in 2007. The purpose of the network is to link together all those places and environments in Europe that consistently harmonise their tourism activities with sustainable environmental, cultural and social elements and are not overburdened by excessive tourism. To this end, finalists and winning destinations are selected in individual European countries every two years. A specific theme is chosen each time. Slovenia has been participating very successfully in this competition and the development of the network since 2008. We should also mention that Slovenia is the only country in Europe to present its winning destinations on postage stamps. </p><p>The theme of the competition in 2017 was &quot;Culture and Tourism&quot; – in other words the emphasis was on one of the fundamental driving forces in tourism around the world, since culture/cultural heritage and gastronomy/cuisine are among the leading reasons why people travel. The winning EDEN destination in Slovenia was Koper, which excellently combines a diverse range of cultural content, activities and institutions with high-quality tourism services and facilities. The other finalists in this edition of the competition were Slovenske Konjice, the Karst region, Radovljica and Ptuj. The solemn proclamation of the winning destinations takes place in Brussels. The winning destinations and finalists from all previous editions in Slovenia also form connections with each other, above all in terms of joint promotion and comparing experiences.</p><p>&#160;</p><p>Janez Bogataj</p>
