THE JOŽEF STEFAN INSTITUTE AND ITS ACHIEVEMENTS IN SCIENCE
The Jožef Stefan Institute, the leading science and research institution in Slovenia, is celebrating its 70th anniversary. It is the largest and the only multidisciplinary institute in our country, whose achievements in science are directly linked to the well-being of all humanity. Today, we have a report for you on two of the Institute’s top achievements of world importance.  
THE TOWN OF PTUJ
Ptuj is considered the oldest town in Slovenia. Its history dates back to the Late Stone Age, but the town had its most flourishing period during the Roman times. Ptuj takes pride in one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval city centres and castles. During carnival time, the town is full of life, especially due to the kurent, the most recognizable traditional Slovenian carnival figure. The kurent is also included on the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
PAINTER MITJA FICKO   
Mitja Ficko belongs to the middle generation of Slovenian painters. He has an extensive creative oeuvre as well as a long list of solo and group exhibitions. He loves to paint and exhibit in Leipzig, Germany, to where he returns every year. Leipzig loves the figurative, imaginative painting style – like that of Mitja Ficko.
THE FRESCOES IN THE FRANCISCAN CHURCH
The Franciscan Church is one of the most visited churches in Ljubljana. The church is well adorned with frescoes, which were restored a few years ago. Since many paintbrushes had dabbled over it, there was a serious dilemma about what to preserve. The Early Baroque church dating from the 17th century was a representative of the “white baroque”, which means that it had no painted decorations for decades.
PAINTER MOJCA SENEGAČNIK
Painter Mojca Senegačnik lives and works in the middle of the picturesque Karst landscape. Her paintings are a sort of combination between painting and illustration. She expresses herself through several painting techniques, interestingly also with thread.
