Daily reports and updates about the corona situation in Slovenia for safe travel

 

As of writing Slovenia is one of the safest countries to travel in the after-COVID world, the epidemic has officially ended and there aren’t any new confirmed cases. Yaaay!

Slovenia called off the general epidemic on May 15th, 2020, and was the first European country to declare its domestic coronavirus outbreak officially over.

Small, green, and pristine country, bordering on northern and heavily hit Italy, has fought its war with the spread of coronavirus in the best and most effective way possible and has one of the best epidemic situations in Europe.

However, there are still a few things to take into consideration when planning a trip to this wonderful country, which was recently also recognized by Forbes magazine as one of seven countries in the world that has the potential to become a major tourist destination in a post-COVID world. We absolutely agree with Forbes!

We are well aware that Slovenia is a rising star in travel and is a country you should visit as soon as you get a chance!
