Positive feedback on our pavilion

Slovenia presents itself at Expo Milano 2015 with an autonomous pavilion. Last Saturday we registered more than 4000 visitors. As a comparison we can mention the pavilion of the United Arab Emirates, where they yesterday registered 5500 visitors. Their pavilion measures 4300 m2 and it is the most expensive presentation, which cost 250 million EUR.
The responses to our presentation at Expo are very positive, in particular the architecture of the Slovenian pavilion attracted considerable interest.
