Possibly overlooked, but yet impressive places to visit

Radio Si is searching for hidden gems that remain unknown to many people who visit Slovenia

Think of…an unforgettable experience, an unpretentious ambience, a delightful and photogenic place, a laid-back atmosphere, excellent food, friendly people, a pure delight…

Duration of project: January-November 2018
19 exquisite providers – 19 visits from foreigners, who try out their offer – 19 radio shows
Voting: 1st – 30th November 2018

Award ceremony: 14th December 2018

We are introducing Slovenia’s most attractive tourist offers for visitors from abroad.
In general, foreign visitors are mostly drawn to the most famous places, like the Lake Bled resort, Ljubljana castle, Postojna cave, the coastal town of Piran etc.

But the project Slovenia’s hidden gems aims to remind our audiences of the many other excellent locations and experiences that are also a must, in order to get a deeper feel of the country’s rich traditions, including cuisine, culture and other unique and innovative (but secret) tourist attractions.

Please give us your proposals for any unique location, service or tourist offer, that you would definitely share with foreign visitors to Slovenia.

The best rated suggestions and ideas will then be tested by foreigners living, working or studying in Slovenia  (members of our Radio Si International Club). They will then share their experiences with our audience in a show and on our Radio Si website www.sloveniashiddengems.si, introducing the excellent providers, too.

At the end of the season, it will be time for all of you to vote among the 20 excellent finalists and pick three winners, who will receive the »Slovenia’s hidden gem 2018« award.

Help us discover and introduce the most interesting (perhaps even hidden) tourist gems and offers for our foreign visitors!

The project aims to promote interesting and innovative tourist products and services, that offer the best they have in terms of showcasing the rich diversity of Slovenia’s landscapes, from Prekmurje in the NE to Primorska in the SW.

Do you have any suggestions?
