At the moment, he is involved in the construction of the bridge to the Croatian peninsula of Pelješac, which is considered one of the five structurally most demanding bridges in Europe.
THE VILLAGE OF ŠMARTNO IN GORIŠKA BRDA
Goriška Brda is a hilly landscape in the westernmost part of the country, right at the border with Italy. It is often compared to the Italian region of Tuscany. Due to its position close to the sea, Brda has a mild Mediterranean climate and is one of the most prestigious Slovenian wine and fruit growing regions. It is scattered with pretty little villages among which Šmartno stands out as a true architectural pearl.
PHOTOGRAPHER JAKA IVANČIČ
Jaka Ivančič is a renowned photographer whose talent has been recognised by the National Geographic, which acknowledged his winter photograph of Bled as the most beautiful landscape photograph of 2018. Ivančič has been captivating social media users with his outstanding landscape photography for a number of years.
POTTER FRANC KREMŽAR Pottery has been one of the oldest and most widespread crafts in Slovenia, yet there is less and less interest in it. In the town of Komenda and the surrounding villages, there have always been a lot of active potters since the area abounds in rich high-quality clay deposits. Nowadays, Franc Kremžar is one of the few remaining craftsmen, who continue to produce traditional clayware.
A HERBAL GARDEN IN SLOVENSKE KONJICE
Slovenians are very enthusiastic about gardens and gardening. At Sveta Ana in the heart of Slovenske gorice, which is best known for winemaking, Mr and Mrs Kolarič have created a wonderful herbal garden with over 250 healing plants. The garden is open to anyone interested in pristine nature and healthy lifestyle.
