Smarter Amazon of Europe Project (Smarter AOE)

We have received financial support for the digital transformation of our business practices from the Smarter Amazon of Europe (Smarter AOE) project. This project aims to establish an international ecosystem for tourism small and medium-sized enterprises in the Amazon of Europe – UNESCO’s first cross-border biosphere reserve spanning five countries: Mura – Drava – Danube and other biosphere areas. The goal is to promote social, digital, and ecological innovations through collaboration, capacity building, and digital transformation.

Project timeline: January 2022 – June 2024
Funding: 1,270,255€

With our apartment “Pri Sodarju,” we have joined the digital transformation and upgrade project, Smarter Amazon of Europe (SmarterAOE).
With the financial support of EU funds, we have officially upgraded the website www.sodarstvo.si to the English language and enabled online reservations. We have digitized the guest registration, making it quick and easy, and implemented a card payment system. On our social media platforms, we have established a messenger for easier and direct communication with guests, including an inquiry and reservation form. Communication with our guests is now seamless and immediate, and we are already experiencing increased interest in our apartment.

It’s incredible how the digitization of processes makes our business operations easier and attracts new guests! We are very pleased with the results and look forward to further progress.


We are proud to have been part of the Smarter Amazon of Europe project!
