ZELENICA AND THE MOUNTAINEERING EDUCATIONAL CENTRE
A couple of years ago, a Mountaineering Educational Centre was opened on Zelenica, a valley high between the mountains above the Ljubelj mountain pass by the Slovenian-Austrian border. The centre, which found home in a new mountain hut, is where education and training in the field of mountaineering takes place. Zelenica was once a popular ski resort, but now it is a paradise for ski touring.
REVITALISATION OF ISTRIAN VILLAGES
Divided between Slovenia and Croatia, the Istrian peninsula is the largest green oasis in the northern Adriatic. The hills and valleys in the hinterland of Slovenian coastal towns are covered with fields, vineyards and olive groves. In the previous century, a great number of people left this area, but in the past few decades, life has again returned to the picturesque villages.
MODEL-BUILDER PETER OGORELEC
In the era of computing and three-dimensional imagery, building models by hand is a dying craft. Peter Ogorelec, a retired architect, has been actively involved in model-building for over six decades. At first, he mainly built models to order, but now he is doing it for his soul, as he puts it.
PHOTOGRAPHER LUKA ESENKO
Luka Esenko is an established landscape photographer who also organizes photography tours and workshops for tourists. He was the one to introduce photography tours to the Slovenian market. These are a specialized tourist activity tailor-made for lovers of photography.
THE LIG MASKS
Pust is an old folk custom, celebrating the end of winter and announcing the coming of spring. Slovenia is a true treasure trove of carnival masks, with almost every region featuring its own characters. Among them are masks from around Lig in the west of the country which have been saved from oblivion by Branko Žnidarčič and his supporters. Thanks to them, the masks have come back and become increasingly recognizable among carnival masks.
