During the last years the capital of Slovenia has been putting lots of efforts to become a city with high environmental standards. Ljubljana has been visibly reshaped and is considered a pioneer in high environmental standards. And the result is as follows - Ljubljana has been awarded at ITB Berlin 2019, one of the world’s largest and most prominent tourism trade fairs.
Slovenia’s capital won in the category Best in Cities (city showing global leadership in urban sustainability and avoiding disruptive mass tourism), with its campaign promoting local food production. The project is called Exchange of Local Foods and it encourages the local food self-supply. This is already the fifth award Ljubljana has received by the Green Destinations organisation.
Ljubljana wasn’t the only Slovenian town that won a prestige distinction at the ITB Berlin. The lakeside resort Bled received second prize in the category Best of Europe. Komen, Rogaška Slatina, Idrija, Koper and Podčetrtek were among the 25 finalist in the category for their efforts for responsible tourism.
