ZELENICA SADDLE AND ITS MOUNTAINEERING EDUCATION CENTRE
In a new mountain hut at Zelenica, the valley high up in the mountains above the Ljubelj pass, along the border with Austria, six years ago successfully opened its doors the mountaineering education centre. This is a place where mountaineering workshops and training take place. Once Zelenica was a popular skiing resort, which now mainly attracts off-piste skiers.
PAINTER ARJAN PREGL
Arjan Pregl is a painter, graphic artist and illustrator who has a humorous and ironic way of responding to the daily events taking place in Slovenia and abroad. A textual message also has its place in his socially engaged painting series. Pregl’s paintings can be found in many public collections, also at the European Parliament.
CERAMIST NATAŠA PRESTOR
Ceramist and sculptor Nataša Prestor makes little clay sculptures, thus continuing with the tradition of Slovenian pottery makers, designers of figure ceramics. She gives her products a highly personal and recognizable imprint, while drawing inspiration for her motifs in folk tradition. In her home, on the edge of the Planinsko polje, she also organises exhibitions, art colonies and workshops.
SUNDIALS BY BOŠTJAN PAVLIČ
Before the discovery of modern digital and mechanical watches, people used sundials to measure time. Boštjan Pavlič became impressed by the sundials he had seen in a museum about a decade ago and now he makes remarkable hand-made travelling sundials, and other types of sundials.
THE BELA KRAJINA PISANICE
Painted eggs are an indispensable part of Easter celebrations. In Slovenia, there is a long and diverse tradition of painting Easter eggs. Each region has a specific name for them, with unique designs and ways of making. Amongst the most beautiful and recognisable are the pisanice from the Bela krajina region.
