Kamnik is considered one of the oldest and most beautiful medieval towns in Slovenia. Today its role may no longer be as prominent as it used to be in the past, but the town still takes pride in its wide array of cultural and historical landmarks.
RADMIRJE PRIESTS’ VESTMENTS
Radmirje in the Upper Savinja Valley now appears to be an ordinary rural area, but in the 18th century its fame preceded it as far as the European courts, since it was also a pilgrimage destination to the members of the royal families. At that time, Radmirje was even known as the Slovenian Lourdes. Still testifying to its famous past, is a treasure trove of priests’ vestments.
SCULPTOR PETER ABRAM
Peter Abram is an interesting painter, sculptor and illustrator. His works reflect the images of his native Karst region, where he still resides, surrounded by nature and a spiritual heritage brimming with ancient symbols.
Jože Koželj is not a trained designer; nevertheless, he designs and produces wonderful wooden objects. The most famous are his footstools of friendship, which can be assembled into a bench like a puzzle. He is intent on making the longest wooden footstool in the world to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.
BREAD BY ANITA ŠUMER
Bread has always had a special place in history, and has been treated as a commodity full of symbolism. The best bread is typically homemade, but people rarely bake it today. Anita Šumer, who started making bread some years ago, uses traditional sour dough while adding a touch of artistry to it. Her bread has become an online hit.
