Slovenia is reopening for tourism and we are happy to welcome guests from all over the world again looking to spend their vacation in one of the most forested and naturally preserved regions in Europe.
The brown bear is the largest European representative of the carnivora order and is known as the most characteristic animal representative of Kočevsko, that is dormant in winter and often sleeps through the colder months.
At this time of uncertainty due to the emergence of the novel coronavirus, success in the tourism industry depends on guests' strust in being able to spend holidays in Slovenia without compromising their health and safety.
In August of 2019, members of "Šola gozdovništva" (Bushcraft & Survival School Slovenia) set themselves up for an interesting and demanding project - making a dugout canoe, using only hand tools and fire.
Kočevsko is an ideal destination for anyone who loves nature and likes to enjoy intact forests, adrenaline-filled hiking and biking adventures, true wilderness or needs a break from the stressful everyday life.
In 2019, Institute Kočevsko surveyed visitors to our destination, to obtain and gather information about our guests, their opinions about Kočevsko and their knowledge of various practices in our destination.
