UK press names Slovenia top destination

The British dailies The Guardian, The Observer and the Guardian Unlimited awarded Slovenia the title of "Favorite European Country" at a recent travel awards ceremony. The award was granted based on a vote by the papers’ readers.

The award comes just as Slovenia is preparing to celebrate 100 years of organized tourism in the country. In 1905, a group of 25 local tourist boards joined forces as the Slovene Tourist Association, which remains the central tourism organization in the country today. The centenary will be marked by nearly 10,000 events throughout the country this year [ICE / 14.01.05 / Slovenia tops poll of prime destinations].
