“I Feel Slovenia. Green. Active. Healthy”
The vastness of its forest, the abundance of its lakes and streams, the charm of the sea and its coastlines, the wealth of its nature reserves, its variety of flora and fauna: during Expo Milano 2015, Slovenia looks to reflect the image of its outstanding natural beauty, ideal for an active and healthy life.
Its pavilion, which covers an exhibition area of 1,910 square meters, exemplifies the strong connection between a healthy environment and a healthy food produced locally, with methods that do not weigh on the ecosystem.
Indeed, natural resources are the key to sustainable food and good quality of life. Slovenia sets out to stimulate the visitor’s senses, offering a showcase of its culinary diversity.
Although, in geographical terms, it is relatively small, the country has 24 gastronomic regions, and at Expo Milano 2015 visitors can sample wide array of delights for the palate, including wines.
Vineyards are indeed a characteristic of a significant portion of the Slovenian territory.
Walking through the green areas, which are a key feature of the pavilion, visitors are reminded of its lush landscape and can take this opportunity to get to know Slovenia in all its glory. Source Expo Milano 2015.
