Slovenia among top destinations to visit in 2021

Major online platform UNILAD has published a series of videos on the top five destinations to visit in 2021. Taking the number two spot is Slovenia.

The UNILAD team have included Slovenia in their list of the top five best places to visit in 2021. The four-minute video on Slovenia presents viewers with the remarkable beauty of the country’s diverse landscapes. The narrator describes Slovenia as being “criminally overshadowed” by its better-known neighbours but insists that “this tiny country can more than compete with the big boys”. The video highlights Slovenia’s diversity, sustainability and, last but not least, gastronomy, describing it as “foodie heaven” and explaining that Slovenia is European Region of Gastronomy in 2021. The video spotlights some of Slovenia’s best-known attractions, including Bled, Postojna Cave and Ljubljana, while also underlining that the country has “absolutely everything”.
