KURENTI                                                                                                                                                 So far only two things from Slovenia have made it onto the Unesco List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humankind - the Škofja Loka Passion, and, since December of last year, the kurenti, or their door to door rounds, typical of the villages in the north-eastern part of Slovenia, to be more precise. The kurent is the most popular and recognizable traditional Slovenian carnival figure. Its origins have yet to be fully established; nevertheless, according to ancient belief, this figure was a demon that chased away the winter and called in the spring and good harvest.                                                                                                                             APLPFOODWAY
The Alpine countries with their traditional foods and diets are also hoping to make it onto the Unesco List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humankind. As the first step towards this goal, six Alpine countries, including Slovenia, have taken on a three-year international project entitled AlpFoodway, which is expected to be completed by November 2019.                                          
NATURE PHOTOGRAPHER MATEJ VRANIČ
Matej Vranič is engaged in studio, landscape and portrait photography. In recent years, he has also become involved in video production. He likes to take photographs of nature, in particular wildlife. Many consider him to be the best Slovenian photographer in this field.                            
THE KARST SHEPHERD DOG                                                                                                            The Karst shepherd dog is the only internationally recognized Slovenian indigenous dog breed. This breed was originally a shepherd dog which protected animal stock from the wolves. In the first half of the previous century, when the rearing of sheep went into decline, they lost their shepherd role and are now used primarily as family dogs. However, recently there has been a gradual shift back to their original role as the guardian of the herd.
