“HAPPINESS HAS A HOME IN THESE MOUNTAINS” (S. Avsenik)
The people of Begunje have always taken pride in their village and the local area. The music legend Slavko Avsenik, arguably the most famous figure from these parts, loved his native village and would regularly return to his nest like a swallow in spring. He and his brother Vilko have immortalised Begunje, which is situated [...]
PRECIOUS TREASURES OF THE VIPAVA VALLEY
The entire area of the Vipava Valley is covered with vineyards, and the time of bandima (vintage time) is an especially happy one in the vineyards and cellars. A lot of credit goes to the priest Matija Vertovec for the development of wine growing in the Vipava Valley. He taught the local people how to [...]
EXPLORE TRŽIČ BY MOUNTAIN BIKE
According to folk legend, once upon a time you were likely to encounter a dragon while hiking in the mountains surrounding the city of Tržič. Today, however, on many mountain routes you are more likely to run into a mountain biker, seeking to either boost their adrenalin levels or merely relax in the outdoors. The [...]
LIVE NATIVITY PLAY IN THE HEART OF THE ICE WONDERLAND
At the end of the year, the Mlačca Gorge near the village of Mojstrana is covered in ice.

The [...]

FATAL ATTRACTION OF THE BLED FESTIVAL
In the period immediately following Slovenia’s independence and the Ten Day War, tourism in Bled was like Sleeping Beauty waiting for a prince to awaken her. ``Bled was like a ploughed field without seeds,`` is the picturesque simile that Jernej Brence, the initiator and artistic director of Festival Bled, uses to describe the situation in [...]
THE FIRE SPECTACLE IN PODKOREN
There is probably no child in the area that doesn’t tremble in fear at least occasionally in the run-up to St. Nicholas’ Day. The reason? The terrifying “parkeljni”, devils who spend the preceding week frightening naughty children. The village of Podkoren has over a hundred years of “parkeljni” tradition. For the last decade, it has [...]
SHINE ON, LITTLE LIGHT, FOR THE TRŽIČ SHOEMAKERS
It is part of the tradition of Tržič to set up stalls on the first Sunday in September for the Shoemaker Festival. On Shoemaker Sunday, the streets of Tržič are filled with masses of visitors in town either to buy shoes or just to have a good time. Shoemaking may have changed considerably in recent [...]
SCOT FASCINATED BY THE BEAUTY OF BOHINJ
Did you know that there are almost 80 species of wild orchids growing in Slovenia, and more than half of these gorgeous plants can be found in Bohinj? Some are noticeable due to their bright colours, but many bashfully hide in the meadows, in forests and in the mountains. Most locals don’t know that many [...]
