The EuroVelo Institute is the official National EuroVelo Coordination Centre in Slovenia recognised by the European Cyclists’ Federation – ECF – and as such in charge of the EuroVelo project and trademark on the territory of the Republic of Slovenia.
The EuroVelo Institute Slovenia undertook a comprehensive project study and implementation of the uniform conceptual marking of the EuroVelo cycling routes, all with the aim of taking care of the non-uniform approach and above all the lack of basic information of the current cycling signalisation in Slovenia. The TOTEM SIGN represents the friendly approach to the urban and rural environment, and above all provides the necessary information for cyclists en route.
In the second half of 2015, activities are being initiated for concrete work in the area of setting the route and marking the EuroVelo 9 which will cross Slovenia from Šentilj to Sečovlje. The entire route cuts across Europe from the Baltic Sea (Poland), through the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia to Pula in Croatia. The total length of the route is 1930 km.
In the second and the third phases of setting and marking the EuroVelo long-distance routes on the territory of Slovenia, the EuroVelo 8 and EuroVelo 13 will be integrated appropriately.
