Davo Karničar - The world's best extreme skier
Last November, Davo Karničar, extreme skier and alpine climber, became the first man to have skied down the highest peaks of all seven continents. Each attempt was performed uninterruptedly from the top to the foot of the mountain. Karničar's entire life has been connected with mountains; people even joke that he was born with skies on. The “7 summits” project is his greatest achievement to date.
Tržič - the most famous shoemakers’ town in Slovenia
Due to its strategic position by the once important thoroughfare across the Ljubelj Pass and the Karavanke mountain range, Tržič gained city rights towards the end of the 15th century, which enabled it to develop into a town with a rich tradition of craftsmanship. Among various crafts that flourished there, shoemaking had a particular impact on the town, which has even been granted the status of a cultural monument.
Sculptor Matjaž Počivavšek
Sculptor and art teacher Matjaž Počivavšek is said to combine the knowledge of an art philosopher with that of a skilled craftsman. His sculptures, characterised by iron and bronze, are strict-looking and often of rather large proportions. He lives and works in Ljubljana and Paris.
Heardsmen’s huts in the Karst
Small stone huts in the Karst region once served herdsmen as shelters against storms or summer heat and were also used for storing tools. Built without any bonding agents, these huts represent an important part of cultural heritage.
Designer Anda Klančič
Anda Klančič is one of the most innovative Slovenian textile designers, and she’s got exhibitions and awards from Europe, the USA and Japan to prove it. She works with the little-known technique of machine-embroidered lace, which she develops, improves and combines to make real artistic masterpieces.
