Slovenia experiences tourismSlovenia is going through a tourism boom presently, and partly, the reason for this is because it is the native country of U.S. first lady Melania Trump. In the first half of 2017, some 1,939,000 tourists visited the Alpine country, which is a 15 percent increase from the same period last year.

 
Analyzing the impact of the Slovenian-born first lady on the tourism growth, Slovenian statistics said that the number of U.S. visitors has risen 15 percent since Donald Trump took oath in January. Born Melanija Knavs, the U.S. first lady left Slovenia in her 20s to pursue an international modeling career. The last time she is believed to have visited was in July 2002, when she introduced Donald Trump to her parents.

 
Slovenian tourist agencies have been organizing tours showing the places where the first lady lived, studied and worked. Websites promoting the nation of stunning natural beauty also say: “Welcome to the homeland of the new First Lady of the United States of America!”

 
Slovenia has become one of Europe’s hottest nature destinations after splitting from Yugoslavia in 1991. It boasts of both a coastline on the Adriatic Sea as well as a portion of the Alps.
