The small town of Sevnica was but a blip on the tourism radar but now it is prepared to reap the rewards of its most famous former resident, the First Lady in Waiting Melania Trump. 

“On Monday, Sevnica was clearly looking forward to a financial spin-off from being the hometown of the 46-year-old future U.S. First Lady,” said Reuters.

While some may be hesitant, most are looking at the potential wins of new publicity. 

"Sometimes the pressure of the media was too hard. The people of Sevnica are not used to it. On the other hand, the global attention is positive because Sevnica is developing into a tourist destination," mayor Srecko Ocvirk told Reuters.

Of course, local residents were extremely supportive of Donald Trump’s campaign.
