Sevnica is about to see a tourism boom thanks to Melania Trump

Most of the passengers I meet on my frequent flights to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, are there to explore the city’s charming cobbled streets, or else they are heading further afield to pretty Lake Bled or the magnificent medieval seaside town of Piran. But that could change next year. The country has a new attraction – an industrial town sitting on the bank of the country’s longest river.Chris Boiling (Daily Mail)

Melania Trumps Heimat: Sloweniens Bürger sind im Rausch

Einen prominenten Platz in allen Reisebroschüren nimmt seit einiger Zeit Sevnica ein: In dem bislang weitgehend unbekannten Ort östlich von Ljubljana wuchs Melanija Knavs auf, bevor sie Model wurde und 2005 den Immobilienmilliardär Trump heiratete. Zwar gibt es nur wenige „Melania“-Erinnerungsorte – ihre Schule und das Gebäude, in dem sie als Kind wohnte – doch machen findige Geschäftsleute den Mangel durch Fantasie wett.AFP/nics (Die Welt)

Trump-Tourismus: Slowenien hofft auf den Melania-Boom

Die Hoffnungen der slowenischen Tourismusbranche sind sowieso nicht zu bremsen: Das Interesse an ihrem gerade mal zwei Millionen Einwohner zählenden Land sei bereits spürbar gestiegen, seit Trump 2015 seine Präsidentschaftsbewerbung bekannt gab, sagt Livija Kovac vom Fremdenverkehrsamt. Nach ihren Angaben kamen zwischen Januar und Oktober elf Prozent mehr US-Touristen in die ehemalige jugoslawische Teilrepublik – im ganzen Jahr 2016 dürften es deutlich über 80.000 sein.abl/AFP (Spiegel)

Ano Roš okronali za najboljšo kuharsko mojstrico na svetu!

Hyatt CEO Interview: We’re Looking Beyond Hotels to Serve Evolving Needs of Guests

There is another megatrend that we see across the globe and that is that there is a very significant increase in the number of people traveling. A lot of that’s driven by significant increases in what we call the consuming class or the commercial class in China and in India. China in particular has significant growth in the number of people who are able to and are interested in traveling outside of China and so I think that will also be a very, very important trend as we head into next year.Mark Hoplamazian (Hyatt)

These restaurants are worth a visit for the views alone
