Slovenia is rightly seen as the most forested country in Europe. Forests cover over 60% of the country’s territory. Therefore, when it comes to eco-tourism and green initiatives, Slovenia is always ahead of the game. In 2016, Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana became the first EU capital to adopt a zero-waste programme. For the introduction of a sophisticated waste management, Ljubljana was named the European Green Capital 2016. Each year Ljubljana welcomes travellers from all over the world to enjoy its beauties and offers a wide choice of green activities. The Guardian has prepared a list of the best sights, restaurants, bars and hotels in Ljubljana from the most budget to the luxury ones, where you can feel the spirit of authentic Slovenia, enjoy the hospitality of the Slovenes, taste their national cuisine and connect with the nature and cultural heritage of this amazing country.
