Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year 2019

Category: Celebration

Dear colleagues, dear students,

We do not have to go far to find joy in our heart and soul, we just have to look around and direct our thoughts to ourselves, a little bit to our dearest ones, colleagues, friends. Thus the world will become small and big at the same time, precisely as it is felt in tourism. Others may forget the things you say, but they will never forget how they felt beside you in 2019. May everyone feel good and cosy around you, because it will mean that in 2019 you are going to be healthy and content.

Dean of UP FTŠ Turistica

Category: Celebration Culture

The United Nations General Assembly adopted this year as the Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

The World Tourism Day 2017 thus represents a unique chance to strengthen the contribution of sustainable tourism to development among the public and private sector decision makers and raise awareness. At the faculty Turistica we are well aware of this and we educate our students in this spirit.

Experience, travel – these are education in themselves. Euripides 

 Travel. Enjoy. Respect.


Let us celebrate together!

Turistica celebrates its 20th anniversary

Portorož, 20 May 2015 – The Faculty of Tourism Studies Turistica, member of the University of Primorska, proudly celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Among the important guests of the roundtable Futuristica and other events held on this important day, like the solemn signing of the contract between Turistica and the partners of the transnational project HisTur and the opening of the student’s photography exhibition Avanturistrica, we hosted: the Head of Government dr. Miroslav Cerar, the Rector of the University of Primorska, prof. Dragan Marušič, the Minister for Economic Development and Technology, Zdravko Počivalšek and other distinguished guests from the fields of tourism and economy.

The main thought of the FuTuristica roundtable was: Tourism needs knowledge, Slovenia needs tourism. New breakthroughs for the development of this important sector are possible only with modern knowledge in the field of sustainable development, marketing and innovation,” said the dean of UP FTŠ Turistica prof. Anton Gosar.
