Triglav National Park
The Triglav National Park is the only national park in Slovenia. Close to the border between Slovenia, Austria and Italy, it covers 880 square kilometres or almost 3 per cent of the country. The astounding scenery of the park comprises majestic mountains, deep valleys, unspoilt waters and many other beautiful natural phenomena.
Plečnik’s Ljubljana
The great Slovenian and Central European architect Jože Plečnik left such a strong and indelible mark on Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, that we can even speak of the city as Plečnik’s Ljubljana. Plečnik spent his last 36 years in his native city, creating there a timeless and unique architecture which is still awe-inspiring. Let’s take a stroll through Plečnik’s Ljubljana to mark the 50th anniversary of the architect’s death.
A master of the violin shoulder rests
Avguštin Penič is a violinist and music teacher who has spent the last 15 years turning himself into one of the three best makers of violin shoulder rests in the world. Penič delights in making things that give people pleasure. Together with other experts, he is now striving to improve the acoustic properties of wood.
The Orlek rock cand
For years, Orlek has been one of the leading bands in Slovenia. This group of top-class musicians were the first in the country to introduce elements of ethno, punk and polka music to rock. In addition to their unique sound, they are also renowned for their lyrics, which make their social comment with a humorous touch. Orlek often perform abroad and, though they sing in the Slovenian language, always send their audiences into raptures. 
Traditional haymaking in Šturmovci
The Šturmovci landscape park is situated next to Lake Ptuj in the north-east of Slovenia. The local people there have revived traditional haymaking, which has turned out to be a real attraction for visitors.
