The organisation European Best Destinations has listed the Slovenian lakeside resort of Bohinj among the ten best destinations to visit in Europe in 2018.
Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest lake, is described as a destination of sustainable tourism, tranquillity and ever changing landscape. “It is an emblematic destination of the EDEN network that gathers the most beautiful destinations of sustainable tourism in Europe,” it says on the website.
The authors of the European Best Destinations list highlight Bohinj’s International Festival of Wildflowers, the Savica Waterfall, local products and the beauty of the Julian Alps among the events and sights worth seeing.
The organisation also praises Slovenia as a country that “evokes nature, forest, lakes, authenticity, outdoor activities and encourages you to recharge your batteries, disconnecting from routine”.
European Best Destinations is a European organisation based in Brussels and developed to promote culture and tourism in Europe. The selection of the best European destinations for 2018 is based on the opinion of tourism offices, communities and 320,793 people, who took part in a three-week period of online voting.
Bohinj is tenth on the list of 15 destinations worth visiting in Europe in 2018. The title of Best European Destination 2018 went to Poland’s Wroclaw, followed by Bilbao, Colmar, Hvar, Riga, Milan, Athens, Budapest, Lisbon, Bohinj, Prague, Kotor, Paris, Vienna and Amsterdam.
