Hostel Pod Vogel won the first place ...

Favourable news from Hostel Pod Voglom, Bohinj, Slovenia. Despite the bad weather there were many visitors from near and far and each year the season is slightly extended. We still host a lot of school groups from Slovenia and abroad, who have numerous options to spend their extracurricular activities. 

We are very happy about the new roof on the hostel that gave us all renewed strength for the future. We have arranged a new bicycle hub, so there is space for two new catering tables, which in the case of events becomes the stage. We hosted several music groups this summer: Čao Portorož, Veronika Kumar & the band and D'Plagiators. We also hosted two big events: "TNatura ETU Triathlon European Cup Cross" and almost traditional Ecoavantura. Hostel’s garden is adorned with photo exhibition “Julian Alps 360°”. For the first time we hosted the Erasmus students who are on a student exchange in Slovenia. In collaboration with the Library of Anton Tomaz Linhart we arranged »Books on holiday" for lazy day at the hostel. 

For promotion of our Hostel Pod Voglom and activities Pac Sports we use social networks and advertising through various fairs. As business representatives we were present at the workshops in Prague, Warsaw and in Goriška Brda, where we introduced Bohinj‘s diverse offer. However, we believe we would need to invest more effort into PR. 

The big news is: Hostel pod Voglom won first prize in the category of Youth Hostels in Slovenia. This was confirmation of our work and incentive for further work .The reward was presented from Tourist Association Slovenia’s campaign “My Country - Beautiful and hospitable”. The project involved around 600 tourist associations and is becoming an all-Slovene movement of regulated environment and hospitality, which in its own way reveals the breadth and substantive meaning of the slogan Tourism are the people. The keynote speaker at the closing ceremony, held on 14.10.2014 in Portorož, was President of Slovenia, Borut Pahor. 

Tourism and hospitality Chamber of Slovenia presented us with two more awards: for the development of sports tourism in Bohinj and for the development of youth tourism in Bohinj.
