The 2000-year-old logboat
The Ljubljanica River is a true treasure trove of archaeological finds, one of the richest of this kind in Europe. So far, between 14- and 15,000 objects have been found on just 20 kilometres of the river, yet, according to some estimates, there could be up to 50,000 objects hidden in it. This summer, an extremely valuable discovery was made: a 2,000-year-old logboat, which ranks among the three largest in Europe.                                                                                                                           
The Layer House
Kranj is the centre of the Gorenjska region and the fourth largest city in Slovenia. The old city centre with many historical sights has been declared a cultural and historical monument. One of the most beautiful buildings is the Layer House.                                                                                                                                 
Painter Rok Slana
Rok Slana is a painter of the younger generation who made it into the Royal Academy of Arts summer exhibition this year. The famous show has been organised in London ever since 1769. His painting – A Toast – was selected among some 12,000 competing artworks from all over the world.                                                                                                         
Freediver Samo Jeranko                                                                                                       
Samo Jeranko is the best freediver in Slovenia. His two underwater feats – 108 metres with fins and 76 metres without fins – have made it to the list of the ten deepest freediving achievements of all time. His last two top international successes also broke two of Slovenia's records. As an international AIDA freediving instructor, he is engaged in the training of the new generations of divers.
The cuisine of the Bela krajina region
Equally impressive as Slovenia's geographic diversity with its Alpine, Mediterranean and Pannonian worlds, is Slovenia's diverse culinary heritage. Each of the 24 gastronomic regions today has its very own specialities. The Bela krajina region was the first in Slovenia to have its traditional dishes protected.
