Republican National Convention: Day OneSlovenia is now in tourism surge and all the credit goes to Melania Trump, the First Lady of the USA. Slovenia is the place, where Melania Trump’s modeling career began. Now most of the tour operators in Slovenia are taking the name of Melania Trump noting “Welcome to the homeland of the new First Lady of the United States of America!”



Some 1,939,000 tourists visited the Alpine country of 2 million in the first half of this year, with a 15% increase from the same period last year, according to the Slovenian Statistics Office.



While analyzing the impact of the Slovenian-born first lady on the tourism growth, the statistics office said that the number of U.S. visitors has risen up to 15% since Donald Trump took office in January.



However the overall growth of Slovenia is not remarkable. There is not a change in overnight stays by visitors to Melania Trump’s hometown, Sevnica.



Most of the tourism companies of Slovenia are seeking to capitalize off of the U.S. first lady’s popularity.



The Slovenian tourist agencies have been organising “on the footsteps of Melania Trump” tours showing the places where she lived, studied and worked.



The websites are promoting the nation of stunning natural beauty also say: “Welcome to the homeland of the new First Lady of the United States of America!”



The U.S. first lady left Slovenia in her 20s to pursue as an international modeling career. The last time she is believed to have visited was in July 2002, when she was introduced Donald Trump to her parents at the lakeside resort of Bled over a meal.



Now, Slovenia becomes the hottest destination in Europe. Slovenia sees its economic growth when it was segregated from Yugoslavia in the year 1991.  Slovenia has both a coastline on the Adriatic Sea and Alps Mountain Range.
