Comments Off on Ljubljana Tourism

Next year the Slovenian capital Ljubljana will be Green Capital of Europe 2016, recognition of a decade of transformation for a city that 10 years ago was dominated by cars. The city has always been blessed with green space, with around 46% covered with forest. This was complimented in 2007 by the creation of an ecological zone in the city centre, which is now closed for motorised vehicles, and has been enlarged in the past five years by almost 620%. As the city has become more popular with visitors, Tourism Ljubljana has worked to ensure residents approve of any changes, with surveys measuring local satisfaction and inclusion of the community in the planning process.

Comments Off on Sozopol Foundation

Sozopol is the oldest town on Bulgaria’s Black Sea Coast. There are still buildings and ruins stretching back to the fourth century, along with a wonderfully intact old town of cobbled streets and medieval stone and wood houses. In 2002 the Sozopol Foundation was established to ensure the town’s sustainability as it grew in popularity with tourists. At that time the coastline was strewn with waste and there were constant leaks from the sewers. Today the town been restored to make it accessible to as many people as possible – so much so that Sozopol is one of just six members of the League of Historical and Accessible Cities.

Comments Off on The “Peaks of the Balkans” Hiking Trail

Transborder Hiking through Albania, Montenegro and Kosovo

In order to create income for the local population, stop abandonment of the mountain regions of Kosovo, Montenegro and Albania and to bring these parts of the region closer together, the national and local tourism organisations and hiking clubs joined forces with the German Development Cooperation to develop the “Peaks of the Balkans” regions as on destination for mountain tourism. With the development of a transnational hiking trail, one of only few in the world, a common base for future development was set.

Trans-border Tourism in the Central and Lower Danube Region

Comments Off on Trans-border Tourism in the Central and Lower Danube Region

Creating a trans-regional Competence Centre as a shared platform for tourism promotion in the Danube region

The Danube, the second-longest river in Europe, winds its way through ten countries between the Black Forest and Black Sea, linking up myriad cultural and economic regions. While tourism is well developed in the upper reaches from Germany through Austria and Slovakia down to Hungary, the countries in the central and lower Danube region are still very much on the sidelines of the international travel and tourism business. Although the region has a lot to offer in terms of its pristine natural beauty and cultural heritage, it still lacks internationally marketable tourism products.
