LJUBLJANICA RIVER ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXHIBITION SITE
The Ljubljanica River, flowing through the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana is considered an  archaeological phenomenon, as more than 8,000 relics from different periods were found in its bed. The river carves its way south of Ljubljana, through the town of Vrhnika where the archaeological Ljubljanica River Experience and Exhibition Site was opened a few months ago. When its restoration is complete, the site will become the new home for an exceptional find, a Roman-Celtic dugout boat from the second half of the 2nd century B.C.
PLEČNIK HOUSE IN LJUBLJANA
This year we mark both the 60th anniversary of the death and the 145th anniversary of the birth of the great Slovene and Central European architect Jože Plečnik. Plečnik's Ljubljana is placed amongst one of the most important compendious works of art in the 20th century. His renovated house in Ljubljana, where Plečnik envisioned his plans for the city's refurbishment, has been nominated for the European Museum of the Year 2017 Award.
CIRIL GODEC, UROLOGIST
A lot of successful Slovenians live and work around the globe. They have made their mark in various fields, including that of medicine. At the moment, there is approximately one hundred Slovene medical doctors working in the United States, including Dr. Ciril Godec who has been living and working there for several decades now. Dr. Godec is a world renowned urologist who performed the first ever prostate cancer operation with almost no loss of blood.
SCULPTORS MIHELJ/MULAČEK
Jana Mihelj and Majk Mulaček are distinctive sculpting artists. Their colourful playful and taunting ceramic sculptures express a sensitive, but at the same time critical view on social events and human relations.
BLACKSMITH JANKO GRAŠIČ
Slovenia has a rich blacksmithing heritage, but today the blacksmith trade has almost disappeared. One of the last blacksmith shops is in the village of Šmarca pri Kamniku with a tradition of almost 300 years. All their unique products are still forged by hand.
