Bohinj, Slovenia's largest lake, is described on the organisation's website as a destination of sustainable tourism, tranquillity and everchanging landscape and Slovenia as a country that "evokes nature, forest, lakes, authenticity, outdoor activities and encourages you to recharge your batteries, disconnecting from routine".

The authors of the European Best Destinations list highlight Bohinj's International Festival of Wildflowers, the Savica Waterfall, local products and the beauty of the Julian Alps among the events and sights worth seeing.

"Bohinj is an emblematic destination of the EDEN network that gathers the most beautiful destinations of sustainable tourism in Europe," it says on the website.

Bohinj is tenth on the list of 15 destinations worth visiting in 2018. The list is topped by Poland's Wroclaw, followed by Bilbao in Spain and Colmar in France. At the bottom of the list are Paris, Vienna and Amsterdam.

The list was compiled based on opinions of tourism boards, communities and more than 320,000 people who took part in a three-week poll.
