LJUBLJANA, EUROPEAN GREEN CAPITAL 2016
This year, Ljubljana was given the "European Green Capital" award. It earned this prestigious title due to its high environmental standards, and its speedy progress towards the sustainable development of the city. Ljubljana has become increasingly popular among tourists who see it as a very green, clean, safe and friendly city.
THE KAMNIK SADDLE
The Kamnik Saddle, or Kamniško sedlo in Slovene, is a 1900-metre high mountain pass in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. This popular mountain destination in Slovenia is an ideal starting point for the demanding ascents to the surrounding mountains reaching over 2,000 metres. Just under its top is a mountain hut, which is part of the Slovenian mountain trail.
JULIANA BOTANICAL GARDEN
Juliana, situated in the beautiful Trenta Valley, amidst the mountain peaks and only a short distance from the Soča river, is the only Alpine botanical garden in Slovenia. This year the garden, which offers a unique mixture of Alpine, Subalpine and Karst flora, is celebrating its 90th anniversary.
LAVENDER IN THE KARST
Over the last ten years, the Slovenian Karst has become increasingly reminiscent of Provence, as it is decorated with purple fields of captivatingly fragrant lavender. This new, highly versatile agricultural culture in the Karst region is also used by the local population to prevent overgrowth of the landscape.
DUNKING DEVILS GROUP
The Dunking Devils acrobatic group amaze audiences all over the world with their breath-taking feats.
