Kamniško sedlo is a 1900-meter-high mountain pass in the Kamnik and Savinja Alps. This popular destination in the Slovenian mountains is ideal for demanding ascents to the surrounding peaks that are over 2000 metres high. Just below the top of the saddle stands a lodge, which is part of the Slovenian mountain trail.
Škocjanski zatok nature reserve is the largest brackish wetland in Slovenia, a true treasure trove of biodiversity. It lies just off the port of Koper and represents the remains of the sea that once surrounded the town.
ILLUSTRATOR ALENKA SOTTLER
Alenka Sottler is one of the key names of Slovenian literary illustration. She is also highly esteemed abroad, where she has already received several awards. Among other things, she is the first Slovenian to have been granted a gold medal by the American Society of Illustrators, some sort of illustrators’ Oscar.
THE SOČA RIVER
The Soča is considered one of the most beautiful European rivers. Due to its unusually green colour it is often referred to as the emerald beauty. It springs up in Trenta in the Triglav National Park in northwest Slovenia and runs for almost 100 kilometres over the Slovenian territory before flowing into the sea in Italy. We visited its upper part, which is also the most beautiful.
THE KOČEVJE HONEY
The Kočevje region in the southeast of the country hides exceptionally well-preserved nature. It is no wonder therefore that the honey collected by the bees in the local forests is of the highest quality on the world scale. Kočevje forest honey also boasts a European protection designation.
