SEVNICA
Sevnica – a small town in Eastern Slovenia with a population of about 5,000 – has lately become one of the most sought out places in Slovenia, as it is the hometown of the new First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump. Despite its recent popularity in the news, Sevnica is an old town that began to develop in the 14th century at the foot of a picturesque medieval castle, which has been almost entirely renovated over the last few decades.
GREGA LIKAR AND THE HRASTNIK GLASSWORKS
Slovenia takes pride in its long and diverse tradition of glass-making. Its oldest glassworks, located in Hrastnik, was built in 1860. Over the last decade, the Hrastnik Glassworks has grown to become a world-renowned producer of glass packaging, glassware and lighting. Its glass is known as the hardest and one of the purest in the world. The success story of the Hrastnik Glassworks has been given an added value by the technological and aesthetic innovations of designer Grega Likar.

He has also collaborated with Tina Maze, Slovenia’s best Alpine skier, Olympic champion, and Crystal Globe recipient. Together, they recently made “7 to Heaven”, a film revealing the seven secrets to Tina’s success.
CLAY FIGURINES AND TRADITIONAL DRESS
