Painter Gabrijel Stupica
To mark the centenary of the birth of Gabrijel Stupica, one of the greatest 20th-century Slovenian painters, the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana put on display the most extensive collection of his work ever assembled, including some 300 works of art. Alas some of his finest works are not part of the exhibition. This is because they are scattered around the world in museum, gallery and private collections, as Stupica was the most highly esteemed of Slovenian modernist painters even during his lifetime.
Natural houses
We live at a time when we are increasingly aware of the importance of a healthy, environmentally friendly and frugal way of living. In Slovenia, as elsewhere, the construction of houses from natural materials is becoming increasingly popular. Kristijan Zver from Prekmurje in the northeasternmost part of the country builds houses from straw, clay and wood – materials that actually provide for a high-quality living environment.
The beaver, the largest rodent native to Europe, became extinct in Slovenia in the 18th century. But some fifteen years ago, this protected animal species returned to our rivers. Although the size of the current population is unknown, it has been observed to be rising fast.
Illustrator Kaja Avberšek
Kaja Avberšek is truly an all-round artist. She is both an illustrator and a designer and is one of the few female artists in Slovenia to also produce comic strips. Her work is distinguished by masterly and witty drawings and texts.
Idrija žlikrofi
The mining town of Idrija, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its surrounding area have been well-known for Idrija žlikrofi since the 19th century. The žlikrofi are a traditional dish whose precise origin is unknown. They are now protected as a Slovenian culinary specialty.
