For the last couple of years Slovenia has become more and more recognized among not only European tourists, but tourists all over the world. The country wins over tourists by its small size and vast variety of tourist activities in different parts of the country reachable within 3 hours of drive (form mountain skiing to seaside holiday). All these factors and the fact that Slovenia is yet not a country of mass tourism, attracts more and more visitors every year.

In 2013 Slovenia has broken the record for tourist arrivals and overnight stays so far: more than 3.384 million tourist arrivals, which is 3% more than in 2012 and 9,579,000 overnight stays or 1% more than in 2012.
Foreign tourists made ​​almost 2.259 million arrivals, or 5% more than in 2012 and more than 5,962,000 overnight stays or 3% more than in 2012, and at the same time more than ever.
As to domestic tourists, last year they made 1,126,000 arrivals which is almost 1% less than in 2012 and 3% less overnight stays than in 2012.

The most popular destinations in Slovenia in 2013 were health resorts, seaside, mountain resorts and the city of Ljubljana.

All in all foreign tourists created 62% of all overnight stays in 2013. As far as the structure of foreign tourists is concerned, traditionally the first place was taken by tourists from Italy, who is followed by tourists from Austria and Germany – 12% each. It is interesting to note that the number of Russian tourists is growing every year. In 2013 they were in the forth place with 6% of all overnight stays.

Such a dynamic growth in tourism carries rapid development of tourist infrastructure and fast return of investments in the sector. The other advantage of Slovenian tourism is that it is not a country of mass tourism yet, so the sector has a great potential, with will be developed in the future.
