Kriški podi is an alpine plateau in north-western Slovenia. It is surrounded by marvellous mountains of daring shapes and also boasts the highest Slovenian lake. In summer, the Kriški podi plateau becomes a veritable alpine botanic garden.
LOG BOATS IN SLOVENIA
Log boats are undoubtedly a valuable part of the Slovenian cultural heritage. These vessels are carved from a single tree trunk and have been used in Europe from prehistoric times right up to the 20th century. In recent years, the Navis project in Ljubljana has been reviving the use of ancient vessels by building their replicas. An international log boat regatta has even been held on the Ljubljanica River.
SCULPTOR SABA SKABERNE
Saba Skaberne’s opus includes everything from small sculptures, portraits, ambient installations, to site-specific interventions in nature. In recent years, this interesting artist has even undertaken felting wool, which she sees as a sculpting material equal to others.
BIOLOGIST TOMI TRILAR
Slovenia is one of the most bio-diverse European countries, and the absolute first among them in the number of species per square kilometre. Biologist Tomi Trilar is a great lover of nature and the Head of the Department of Invertebrate Zoology at the Slovenian Museum of Natural History. He is an avid collector of animal sounds, particularly bird calls.
Svečina is a village in the wine-growing region of Slovenske gorice in north-eastern Slovenia, right on the Austrian border. The settlement boasts a rich wine-growing tradition and excellent wine, but what truly sets it apart is the heart-shaped road winding among its vineyards, attracting visitors from far and wide.
