Disputes between Slovenia and Croatia over the sea border do not seem to affect the mood of Slovenian tourists, who still, according to a recent survey, prefer to spend their summers on the Croatian sea and, along with Germans and Italians, are the most numerous foreign tourists.The Ljubljana daily Delo conducted a survey that showed that 49 respondents prefer to go on holiday to Croatia, 45 percent spend their summers in Slovenian resorts, 7 percent in Italy, 4 in Spain and 3 percent in Greece. It is interesting that more than 75 respondents say that they will spend the summer in Croatia or spend at least one day on a trip there. According to the Croatian Tourist Board, in recent years the number of arrivals of guests from Slovenia has grown by two to three percent.Most of them cite the geographical proximity of Croatian destinations, natural beauty, family and friendly ties, similarity of language as the reason for coming to Croatia, and we should not ignore the fact that many Slovenes in Croatia have their own holiday properties. Slovenian President Borut Pahor also decided to spend his summer holidays on the Croatian sea, so he announced that he would spend a week with his family in Umag. However, Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar is bypassing Croatia in a big way. He will spend his vacation in August on the Slovenian sea, mountains and lakes, and will also enjoy the beauties of the Montenegrin coast and the Austrian Alps.Slovenian tourism is also recording better results in terms of the number of guests, which prompted the tourist staff of Bled and Bohinj to tell domestic tourists not to come in the height of the main season but in the fall when there are fewer guests.Slovenians mostly visit destinations in Istria and Kvarner, followed by destinations in the Zadar region. Tourist traffic from Slovenia is dominant in the camping segment. In the segment of commercial capacities, family accommodation is in second place, followed by hotels. A relatively high share of Slovenians’ traffic is made up of arrivals and overnight stays in non-commercial accommodation facilities.Take a look at the key features of tourist traffic from Slovenia here
EC Volleyball wrapped up the regular season tonight with wins at all three levels in straight sets.EC vs FC Volleyball (10-16)We had our annual Dig Pink event to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer. It was a successful night in every aspect. Both teams did a great job honoring those fighting the battle, those who have lost the battle, and those who have survived the battle.We mixed things up tonight. We tried some new things and new rotations in hopes of having a few different threats in the post season. The girls did a great job at adjusting and showed a lot of promise in a different strategy.It was a great regular season. I’m proud of ECVB at all three levels. Our freshman finished with an undefeated record and our JV team only dropped one match all year. All three teams finished as EIAC Champs! We have a bright future ahead of us, but our focus on this year is far from over. The weight of the world is on the shoulder of these varsity players. We have high expectations for the post season.Varsity finished the regular season 26-6 and 13-1 in EIAC action.Next up: Varsity travels to Columbus East on Saturday, October 25 to face the winner of Columbus East and Columbus North.
