Gold for St. Anton am Arlberg
St. Anton the most beautiful village of flowers. The congregation won the gold medals on Friday, the “Entente Florale” at the “Quality of flowers and life-quality competition”.
St. Anton am Arlberg was voted the most beautiful Blumendorf in Europe in the Slovenian Podcetrtek.
The village with international fame and long history has preserved its village character and a lot of cordiality. “The jury was delighted that this is possible in such a fashionable ski resort as St. Anton am Arlberg,” says Titz.
The jury evaluation started in June 2017, where the electricity supply for St. Anton is covered: at the Speicherersee in St. Anton, with which the municipality can produce 100% of its own electricity. “A holiday region of world renown, which is so active in environmental protection, impressed the jury members at the very beginning of their visit,” explains Titz.
The “Entente Florale”, the European flower decoration and life quality competition, has been held since 1975, and since 1978 also Austria has participated in it. Twelve European countries competed in the competition in 2017. The evaluation of the participating villages and cities was carried out by a European expert committee.
