KROKAR PRIMEVAL FOREST
In the forest-covered Slovenia, there are as many as 14 primeval forests or their remains, covering a total of 540 hectares. The largest among them is Krokar Primeval Forest in Kočevsko, which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Natural Site since 2017.
DR UROŠ AHČAN
Slovenia has a great number of outstanding doctors including experts that move boundaries by world measure. Among these is top expert, plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon, Dr Uroš Ahčan.
MARIBOR CASTLE, MUSEUM
Maribor, the second largest Slovenian city, lies in the north-eastern part of the country. It grew on the banks of the Drava River, at the crossroads of Central European trade routes, and was first mentioned in written records in 1254. The city used to have three castles, of which only one remains preserved. Today, it is the seat of the Maribor Regional Museum.
Painter Stanka Golob has chosen sand as the medium of her artistic expression. The technique of sand painting may seem simple and easy, but it requires a lot of preparation and precision, as corrections at a later stage of the process are not possible. She uses sand of different size and colour to give her paintings a spatial dimension.
In the tourist offer of a country, gastronomy holds an important place. This awareness has grown in Slovenia in the recent years, and the country has made great advances in the field of cuisine, becoming increasingly recognised in the world as a destination of outstanding culinary and wine experiences. This March, it hosted the European Food Summit, which was a total success and, in 2021, it will be the bearer of the title European Gastronomic Region.
