The Olimje Monastery and its ancient pharmacy
Ranking among the most frequently visited historical sights in Slovenia, the Olimje Monastery lies in the east of the country, not far from the health resort of Podčetrtek. A castle that was later turned into a monastery was first mentioned in written records at the start of the 13th century. The third oldest pharmacy in Europe was established there, as the Pauline monks who managed the castle were excellent pharmacists and healers. 
The healing effects of Karst caves
One of the most striking features of the Karst region in the southwest of the county is underground caves, which have proved suitable for alleviating several health problems. For over a decade, their therapeutic properties have been exploited by the Sežana hospital to treat chronic pulmonary diseases.
Painter Irena Polanec
Irena Polanec is a name that stands out among modern Slovenian fine artists. She started her career abroad, in Paris, where she lived for 15 years and which she still considers her second home. And it was in Paris that her Eves were born – mysterious women that provided the name for an extensive artistic opus.
The rich history of Vipavski Križ
Atop a hill in the middle of the Vipava Valley in the southwest of Slovenia lies a picturesque town called Vipavski Križ. In the past, the town had a more prominent role than today, reaching its heyday in the 16th century. The remains of a Renaissance castle, a Capuchin monastery and a town wall remind us of its turbulent and illustrious history. 
Sculptor Peter Černe
The Mediterranean landscape have enchanted the sculptor Peter Černe, whose long creative path can be divided into five different periods, distinguished by content, motifs and materials. In his last period he’s been creating colourful landscapes of joyful anthropomorphic shapes made from coloured baked clay.
