Slovenian Business and Tourist Event in Budapest

October 28, 2019

Slovenian Prime Minister Marjan Šarec addressed representatives of the Slovenian and Hungarian tourism industry Monday at the traditional Slovenia Tourism Promotion Event organized by the Slovenian Tourist Board. The politician highlighted that 24% more Hungarian tourists visited Slovenia in 2018 than in the previous year.

"Slovenia is a green country with a wealth of natural resources that places it at the forefront of European countries. I am pleased that our neighbors recognize Slovenia as a green destination providing peace, relaxation and an alternative to mass tourism. I am certain that by discovering natural sites, cultural particularities and national features, we enhance cooperation between countries in other fields as well," Prime Minister Šarec emphasized.

Zdravko Počivalšek, the Minister of Economic Development and Technology and a member of the delegation accompanying the Prime Minister noted that "Slovenia wishes to be recognized globally as a high-quality tourist destination. The promotion of Slovenia’s tourism in foreign markets is thus extremely significant, particularly in nearby countries. The number of visits by Hungarian guests to Slovenia has been constantly growing in recent years. A great role is undoubtedly played in this growth by business and tourism events during which our tourism industry can be showcased. Slovenia has many natural and cultural attractions which we can proudly present to the world and which are of tremendous appeal to foreign visitors. I am pleased that today’s presentation focused on the comprehensive tourism sector dominated by high-quality services and pristine nature. These are the distinct advantages that make Slovenia one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Europe."

STB Managing Director Maja Pak spoke about Slovenia as a country of unique five-star experiences. "Slovenian tourism recorded a 150% increase in arrivals and more than 150% growth in overnight stays by Hungarian tourists compared to 2013. In 2018 we recorded a high number of arrivals – 180,000, in fact – and more than 484,000 overnight stays by Hungarian guests; this trend has continued this year. Last year, Hungary ranked sixth in terms of the number of overnight stays of foreign tourists visiting Slovenia, with an average length of stay of 2.7 days,” she said.
