THE ŽIČE CHARTERHOUSE
The Žiče Charterhouse, which hasn't served in its original function for many years, celebrated its 850th anniversary last year. This was the first charterhouse in the whole of Central Europe and the first monastery of the Carthusian order outside of the order's base in France and Italy. The spirit of the Carthusians still lives on in the remote Valley of St. John the Baptist in eastern Slovenia.
ŠTANJEL AND FABIANI
Štanjel is one of the oldest and most attractive settlements on the Kart Plateau. Its present-day appearance was shaped to a large degree by the architect and urbanist Maks Fabiani, one of Central Europe's most important architects during the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. After World War I, he gave up a successful career in Vienna and returned to his native Karst, where he left an enduring mark, particularly in the village of Štanjel.
THE PUPPET MUSEUM
The Slovenian tradition of puppetry, which is more than a century old, now has an outstanding museum located at Ljubljana Castle. There, the country's rich tradition of puppetry is brought together in one place for the first time. The museum has been designed to be an interactive space.
THE BIVOUAC BELOW MT. SKUTA                                                                                                      For about a year, the high-mountain landscapes of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps have been graced by a new, modern shelter for mountaineers. The Bivouac below Mt. Skuta, at an altitude of 2070 meters, is a unique international project in the mountains of Slovenia and is inspired by the traditional Slovenian Alpine architecture.                                                                                              MUSICIAN JANEZ DOVČ
Janez Dovč is one of the most active musicians in Slovenia – he is a composer and arranger, as well as an accordionist – and is indeed a multi-instrumentalist. He is one of the leading performers of Slovenian folk music, and as an artistic director of the Sound of Slovenia project also one of the greatest promoters of Slovenian music abroad.
