How did the City of Dragons gain worldwide recognition with the help of ArrivalGuides

Case Study: Ljubljana

Imagine walking along the narrow streets on the banks of the river, where the only sounds you hear are the voices of people chatting and laughing at sidewalk cafes and restaurants. This is Ljubljana, a charming city of romantic bridges and still one of the best-kept European secrets.

The capital of Slovenia is full of vibrant creativity, exquisite architecture, and boasts a wealth of green spaces which justifies its European Green Capital 2016 title.

In order to gain more exposure, Ljubljana Tourism joined ArrivalGuides´ destination network in 2014. They wanted to reach a greater number of people and make their stay in Ljubljana more fulfilling with the help of useful content.
