Slovenia voted top 8 travel destination


At the end of every year Lonely Planet's top destinations for the coming year are published. A few weeks ago they announced their top picks for 2012. This year Reykjavik was voted the most popular city and Iceland the most popular country in the world. Since those two places got by far the most votes, it might be the right time to tweak my travel list a bit.


I was surprised (and pleased at the same time) to also find Slovenia in the Readers’ Choice: Top 10 countries category. With 6% of all votes my home country took 8th place. Both USA and Mexico were behind.


I think this is a great result and hope it will help promoting this great country. In my opinion it has been off the average traveller's radar for too long.


If you want to read the whole article, it is available on the Lonely Planet website.

Hmmmm. I definitely need to make a plan to visit soon. My company does a LOT of work in Ljubljana but I never get invited to go!!

Maybe you should stop waiting and take matters into your own hands. ;)

What kind of business do you/they have in Ljubljana anyway?

Congratulations!
I've visited your beautiful country.
It was so fascinating for a little girl to see the Postojna Caves.
I still remember them although it's many years ago.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day.

I`m so happy to see that- definitely one of my all-time favorite destinations. Surprised to see places like Columbia and India on the list, not because they aren`t beautiful but simply because I didn`t realize they were popular. I knew Iceland was very popular though.

@Jess:
Some of them surprised me as well - including Slovenia. I guess being on that list it doesn't necessarily mean it is a very popular destination. However all of the countries listed have the potential to become one (and have a lot to offer).
