Casey Stoner, Australian professional motorcycle racer and the MotoGP World Champion in 2007 and 2011, visited Ljubljana and the Central Slovenia region just recently. He was impressed by its beauty and at the same time expressed a regret that he hadn't visited it sooner.

He actually said it's one of his favourite places in Europe and that it took too long before he discovered its many attractions.

See it for yourself in the video:

Apparently, he likes the relaxed atmosphere in the city, the fishing and the golf. No wonder he decided to visit Slovenia, since it has been named the Undiscovered Golf Destination of the Year 2015 by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO).

He decided to play golf in Smlednik, a town just a stone's throw away from Ljubljana. The Diners Club Ljubljana golf course is well known for its modern design and flat terrain without trees or other natural obstacles, which allows extremely dynamic play.

He spent some days in Ljubljana and its vicinity and also visited a world famous exhaust systems factory in Slovenia, Akrapovič, which he compared to a work of art.

Casey Stoner said he intends to return soon. Ljubljana will be delighted to play host to an ambassador like him!
