MORIGENOS SOCIETY
Years ago it was believed that no marine mammals lived in the Slovenian sea. However, since 2001, when Morigenos – Slovenian Marine Mammal Society was established, over 150 dolphins have been identified to use this part of the Adriatic Sea as their habitat. Besides scientific research, a large part of the society’s activities is dedicated to education, including organisation of summer camps.
ENVIRONEMTALIST IZTOK GEISTER
Slovenia is among those European countries where nature has been best preserved. The areas of Natura 2000 cover 37% of its surface, which is the most in the European Union. Iztok Geister, one of the most prominent Slovenian environmentalists, considers himself an advocate for nature. He believes that nature can preserve and restore itself, while man can pose a threat to it rather than protect it.
THE SOLČAVSKO REGION
In the north of the country under the high peaks of the Kamnik and Savinja Alps right at the border with Austria lies a remote yet well preserved region of Solčavsko. It is a land of secluded farms, the highest-lying in Slovenia, connected by the Solčavsko panoramic route. The greatest part of the route runs at an altitude of 1100 metres above sea level and offers breathtaking views.
FOUNDRYMAN BORUT KAMŠEK
Borut Kamšek’s foundry shop has created many public monuments now featured around Slovenia. Bronze sculptures are cast according to an ancient process of lost-wax casting. But besides creating new sculptures, Kamšek’s foundry also deals with restoration work.
UNIQUE HOSTELS
When travelling, why pay only for accommodation if you can experience local stories that you won’t find in any official museum? There are more and more hostels in Slovenia that don’t offer mere overnight stay, but have been designed in such a way to tell of the country’s cultural and natural heritage. The first among unique hostels was Hostel Celica in Ljubljana, which has been awarded the international Travelife Gold Award this year, thus becoming the first certified sustainable hostel in the world.
