CODE OF ETHICS AND SUSTAINABILITY GUIDELINES FOR LOCAL TOURIST GUIDES IN SLOVENIAN ISTRIA

Dear Local Tourist Guides of Slovenian Istria,

For many years, we have been striving to act sustainably and responsibly towards our beautiful green nature and the rich local cultural heritage of Slovenian Istria, and we want to set an example for others to follow. Thanks to your help, exploring Slovenian Istria becomes more interesting for tourists. With your dedication, knowledge and experience, you show our guests every corner of Slovenian Istria, even the most hidden ones. From the well-kept beaches surrounded by the Adriatic Sea to the rugged scenic routes through the fertile hills of the countryside. From the high-end promenades to the romantic streets basking in the rich history. From the authentic tradition of local customs to the modern urban pulse. You help us create the perfect experience with a touch of authenticity and local flair.

Local Tourist Guides are the first or sometimes even the only contact that tourists and visitors have with the local people and the tourism economy, and thus have a strong influence on the image and perception of a destination. It is therefore very important that you carry out your work with full awareness of your responsibilities towards the local community, local tourism providers, tourists and visitors and, last but not least, towards the other inhabitants of the area, who can also benefit from the sustainable orientation that the Local Tourist Guide promotes and implements through his/her actions.

The Code of Ethics and Sustainability Guidelines for Local Tourist Guides in Slovenian Istria follows European standards, the legislation of the Republic of Slovenia, the National Code for Tourist Guides and guidelines in the field of sustainable tourism. It is designed to establish basic standards for local tourist guides, whose activities contribute significantly to the sustainable perception and sustainable development of the Slovenian Istria destination, as well as to the implementation of the vision of Slovenia as a green destination.
