Solčavsko – Three Valleys in Harmony

Slovenia Post  continue to release  the Tourism series with stamps featuring destinations and areas in Slovenia that have won the title of European Destination of Excellence (EDEN) in the competition organized by the European Commission. In 2009 Slovenia was represented in the European competition by the Solčavsko district, which took first place in the national competition to choose the country's EDEN entry. On March 30, 2012, they issue one stamp depicted the Solčavsko district.

The Solčavsko district consists of three remarkable valleys (hence the official tourist slogan in the title) surrounded by the peaks of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Karavanke. These valleys are: Robanov Kot, Matkov Kot and Logarska Dolina.

The beauty of these three glacial valleys derives not only from the well-conserved natural environment, but also from the culture and way of life of the people who live here, building on the cultural heritage that has been handed down to them and seeking new challenges for their own life in the modern age.

Numerous mountain farms in the area welcome tourists, hikers and climbers with hospitality. The farms of the Solčavsko district are in fact among the best in Slovenia in terms of quality of tourism-related activities. (Sources: Bulletin of Slovenia Post)
