Kranj is the 2023 European Destination of Excellence

EDEN 2023

Following a Jury meeting on 9 November 2022, Kranj was announced as 2023 European Destination of Excellence (EDEN).

The EDEN initiative

Each year, the EDEN competition will name one ‘European Destination of Excellence’, an accolade that will signal a destination’s forward-thinking approach and identify them as a sustainable tourism pioneer. Destinations in EU countries and COSME countries with populations between 25,000 and 100,000 inhabitants are eligible to apply. 

Kranj was selected as the 2023 European Destination of Excellence (EDEN).

We shortlisted three additional destinations for the 2023 competition. See our destinations page for more details.

Small, sustainable, the future of tourism: European Destination of Excellence.
