Mariborčanka Vlasta Zorko je bila prva uveljavljena slovenska kiparka. Pri svojih šestinosemdesetih je še vedno dejavna in v svojem ateljeju v Mariboru izdeluje svoje značilne skulpture žensk. V svojem življenju jih je izdelala že več kot 1000. Katarina Rešek Kukla je vsestranska umetnica, diplomirala pa je iz filmske režije na akademiji v Ljubljani. Najslikovitejši je gotovo stari del Radovljice, v katerem edinstvene primere srednjeveške arhitekture zaokroža obzidje z obrambnim jarkom. Osrednji Linhartov trg s slikovitostjo starih stavb obiskovalce popelje nekaj stoletij v preteklost. Zgornji del reke Soče se vije po dolini Trente. Njena slikovita kulisa gorskih vrhov in neokrnjene narave je posejana z osamljenimi domačijami. Trentarski muzej danes pripoveduje o bogati kuturni krajini in preteklem življenju v tej dolini. V Sloveniji uspeva več kot 3500 različnih rastlinskih vrst. To jo uvršča med najbolj raznolike in rastlinsko bogate dežele v Evropi. Bogastvo slovenskih rastlinskih vrst že 210 let raziskuje, predstavlja in ohranja ljubljanski botanični vrt, ki deluje v okviru ljubljanske Univerze. *** Vlasta Zorko from Maribor was the first established Slovenian female sculptor. She signed her name to the largest number of publically realized projects. Although 86, she remains active sculpting at her studio in Maribor her characteristic figurines of women. Over the course of her career, she made more than 1,000. Katarina Rešek Kukla is a versatile artist: a DJ, a musician and a writer of lyrics. As a young girl, she sang in choirs, and played drums and cello. She is particularly fond of the latter, because she feels that the sound of the cello is similar to that of the human voice. She holds a BA in film directing from the Ljubljana Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film, and Television. The most scenic part of Radovljica is certainly its old city centre, where a defensive wall and ditch enclose unique examples of medieval architecture. The picturesque old buildings in its central Linhart Square take visitors a few centuries into the past. The upper Soča Valley and the spring of the Soča river are located in the Trenta Valley. Its vibrant backdrop of mountain peaks and intact nature is peppered with lone homesteads. The Trenta Museum today tells the story of a rich cultural landscape and of life in the valley as it once was. More than 3,500 plant species flourish in Slovenia. This makes its plant life one of the most diverse and rich in Europe. The Ljubljana Botanic Gardens, which operate under the auspices of the University of Ljubljana, have been researching, presenting, and preserving the treasure trove of Slovenian plant species for 210 years.

Alen Ožbolt je priznan slovenski umetnik in profesor na Akademiji za likovno umetnost v Ljubljani. Od sredine 80. do sredine 90. let je deloval v priznanem umetniškem dvojcu Veš slikar svoj dolg, ki je bil znan po prostorskih slikah – novosti na likovnem prizorišču. Srečko Kosovel velja za velikega slovenskega avantgardnega pesnika z začetka 20. stoletja. Čeprav je umrl zelo mlad, star komaj 22 let, je zapustil izjemen pesniški opus. Obiskali smo njegovo domačijo na Krasu. Škocjanske jame veljajo za zelo posebne kraške jame. Po več kot sto letih so v tem največjem slovenskem podzemnem kanjonu na svetu ponovno odprli pot, po kateri so nekoč hodili prvi obiskovalci jame – Hankejev kanal. Ta je primeren le za tiste, ki se ne bojijo višine in so fizično dovolj pripravljeni. Bohinj velja za zeleno oazo Triglavskega narodnega parka. Tu se je ohranilo tudi veliko tradicionalnih veščin in značilnih izdelkov iz preteklosti. Nadeli so jim blagovno znamko Bohinjsko in jih tako predstavili širnemu svetu. Smaragdna reka Soča je izjemen naravni biser slovenskega alpskega sveta, ki s svojo značilno zelenomodro barvo, brzicami in tolmuni navduši vsakogar. Obiskali smo znamenite zgodovinske mostove, ki prečkajo to prelepo reko. *** Alen Ožbolt is a prominent Slovenian artist and Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, he was part of the renowned duo of artists Veš slikar svoj dolg (or Painter, Do You Know Your Duty in English), which was famous for its spatial paintings – a novelty on the art scene of the time. Srečko Kosovel is considered one of the greatest Slovenian avant-garde poets from the beginning of the 20th century. Although he died at a very young age, when he was only 22 years old, he left behind an outstanding body of work. We visited his place of birth in the Karst region. The Škocjan Caves are considered to be a truly special Karst phenomenon. After more than a hundred years, the Hanke Canal was reopened in this largest underground canyon in the world. This is in fact the path that the first visitors to the caves once walked. The Canal is only suitable for those who are not afraid of heights and are physically fit enough to undertake such a task. Bohinj is considered the green oasis of the Triglav National Park. In this area, many traditional skills and distinctive local products, which have been present here for centuries, continue to develop and are now advertised under the Bohinjsko or From Bohinj brand. The emerald Soča river is an exceptional natural gem in the Alpine world of Slovenia, whose visitors are always amazed by the river’s characteristic green-blue hues, its rapids and its pools. We visited the famous historic bridges that stretch over this beautiful river.

Predjamski grad nedaleč od znamenite Postojnske jame je zagotovo najbolj slikovit grad na Slovenskem. Osupljiva stvaritev, vgrajena v 123 metrov visoko skalno steno že stoletja buri domišljivo. Njen skriti zaklad so odkrili pred manj kot tremi desetletji. Stvaritve arhitekta Jožeta Plečnika srečamo po številnih evropskih mestih. Slovensko prestolnico pa je zaznamoval tako močno, da govorimo o Plečnikovi LJubljani. Za arhitekturni biser 20. stoletja velja tudi njegova hiša v Trnovem. Andreja Peklar je slikarka, ilustratorka in avtorica otroških slikanic. Njene ilustracije bogatijo tudi učbenike in revije za otroke in mladino. Je dobitnica številnih zelo uglednih domačih in mednarodnih nagrad in priznanj. Tišina, mir in lepa, neokrnjena narava je tisto, kar iščejo obiskovalci kraške planote Vremščica. Z njenega vrha ob jasnem vremenu seže pogled vse od vrhov Julijskih Alp do Jadranskega morja. Na prostranih travnikih in pašnikih spomladi zacvetijo značilne gorske in sredozemske rastline. Zopet pa se sliši glas ovc. V otroških slikanicah so polži upodobljeni kot ljubke počasne živali. V resnici jih vidimo povsem drugače. Iz svojih vrtov pa jih predvsem preganjamo. Za znanstvenike so ti mehkužci zelo zanimiva bitja. V Sloveniji živi več kot 400 različnih vrst polžev. Najdemo pa jih prav povsod – tudi v podzemlju. *** Predjama Castle in the vicinity of the famous Postojna Cave is undeniably the most picturesque castle in Slovenia. The stunning construction, built into a 123-metre-high rock face, has been stirring the imagination for centuries. Its hidden treasure was discovered less than three decades ago. Architect Jože Plečnik’s creations can be seen in many European cities, but the mark he left on the Slovenian capital was so strong that we refer to it as Plečnik’s Ljubljana. His house in Ljubljana’s Trnovo district, which is also considered an architectural pearl of the 20th century, is not only a museum but also an important study centre. Andreja Peklar is a painter, illustrator and author of children’s books. Her illustrations also make wonderful additions to textbooks and magazines for children and teens. She has received many prestigious national and international awards and honours. Peace, quiet and beautiful pristine nature is what visitors to Vremščica are looking for. On clear days, the views from this Karst plateau extend to the peaks of the Julian Alps on one side, and the Adriatic Sea on the other. In spring, its extensive meadows and pastures are covered with typical Alpine and Mediterranean flowers and plants. The sound of sheep can be heard once again. In children’s books, snails are depicted as charming slow animals but in reality, they are seen as anything but that. So much so, that we chase them away from our gardens and lawns. For scientists, however, these molluscs are very interesting creatures. In Slovenia, there are over 400 species of snails, and they can be found everywhere – even underground.

Kurnikova hiša v Tržiču je danes muzej. V 19. stoletju pa so tu živele generacije kolarjev. Izdelovali in popravljali so vozove, orodja. Janez Pergar, eden zadnjih izučenih slovenskih kolarjev, še vedno rad predstavi svoj poklic kot kulturno dediščino. Eva Peterson Lenassi sodi v srednjo generacijo slovenskih kipark. V njenem ateljeju se kiparstvo in lončarstvo prepletata ter združujeta. Odziv na njeno umetnost, ki velja za zelo izčiščeno, je bil tako v Evropi kot tudi na Daljnem Vzhodu, predvsem v Hong Kongu in Južni Koreji, kjer je imela razstave, zelo dober. Štirideseta leta prejšnjega stoletja so bila leta velikih big bandov, ki so igrali swing jazz oziroma plesno glasbo. V Sloveniji je bila ta glasba na vrhuncu takoj po drugi svetovni vojni. Big Band RTV Slovenija je postal vodilni slovenski jazzovski orkester. Letos praznuje 75 let delovanja in velja za eno najstarejših zasedb na svetu. V letošnjem letu je eno najuglednejših priznanj Planinske zveze Slovenije - Priznanje za življenjsko delo v alpinizmu prejel alpinist, gorski vodnik, reševalec Anton Sazonov – Tonač. Veronika Macarol je študenta arhitekture, ki se sprošča ob slikanju. Vendar pa javnost pozna Veroniko v drugi vlogi. Skupaj s Tino Mrak veljata za najboljši slovenski jadralki. Na olimpijskih igrah v Riu de Janeiru sta za le za las zgrešili olimpijsko odličje, zato so njune želje za Tokio usmerjene najvišje. *** Today, the Kurnik house in Tržič is a museum. In the 19th century, it was home to generations of wheelwrights. This is where they made and repaired wagons and tools. Janez Pergar, one of the last professionally trained Slovenian wheelwrights, still enjoys presenting his profession as part of the local cultural heritage. Eva Peterson Lenassi belongs to the middle generation of Slovenian sculptors. Sculpture and pottery intertwine and combine in her studio. Her art is considered highly refined and her exhibitions are met with a very good reception in both Europe and the Far East, particularly in Hong Kong and South Korea. The 1940s was a decade of Big Bands playing swing jazz or music for dancing. This style of music reached its peak in Slovenia immediately after World War II. The RTV Slovenia Big Band became the leading Slovenian jazz orchestra. This year, the orchestra is celebrating 75 years and is considered one of the world’s oldest ensembles of its kind. This year, one of the most prestigious awards of the Alpine Association of Slovenia – the Lifetime Achievement Award – went to mountaineer, mountain guide and mountain rescue member Anton Sazonov – Tonač. Veronika Macarol is a student of architecture who relaxes by painting. However, the public knows her in a different role. Alongside Tina Mrak, she is considered Slovenia’s best competitive sailor. At the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the duo came within a hair’s breadth of standing on the podium, which is why their aspirations for Tokyo are geared towards the very top.

100 let je minilo od priključitve vzhodnega dela Slovenije, Prekmurja, k Sloveniji. V galeriji Murska Sobota so zato pripravili obsežno razstavo likovnih del in jo naslovili Osamljenosti – izrazi tesnobe v prekmurski umetnosti. Razstavo bodo aprila odprli tudi v galeriji Božidar Jakac v Kostanjevici na Krki. Prekmurje je tudi svet Ferija Lainščka, enega najbolj branih in tudi prevajanih slovenskih pisateljev, čigar številna dela so dobila tudi filmsko upodobitev. Prekmurski ljudje, njihovo življenje in navade, pa tudi prekmurska mitologija so zelo pogost motiv njegovih romanov, za katere je prejel veliko literarnih nagrad. Urška Centa je plesalka, koreografinja in plesna pedagoginja. Ko je bila stara 11 let, si je želela plesati balet, vendar ji »tu-tu« ni dišal preveč, za orientalske plese je bila premlada. Flamenko jo je prevzel čisto po naključju, vendar tako močno, da mu je sledila v Andaluzijo. Športno plezanje je način življenja dveh dobrih prijateljic Mie Krampl in Lučke Rakovec

Drago Jančar je eden najpomembnejših sodobnih slovenskih pisateljev. Za svoje delo je prejel vrsto domačih in mednarodnih literarnih nagrad. Velja za najbolj prevajanega slovenskega pisatelja. Zanj pa so največja nagrada bralci njegovih del. Verjame v svobodno družbo in ustvarjalnost. Za »resnično zvezdo« je mednarodno uveljavljeno oblikovalko Niko Zupanc razglasil častnik Wall Street Journal. Njene izdelke: luči, stole, zofe, ogledala, pa tudi igrače je ameriška revija Elle označila za »pank eleganco«. Svojevrstnost njenih izdelkov ji je odprla vrata v svet svetovno priznanih oblikovalcev. Kar nekaj njenih izdelkov je že zelo prepoznavnih. Na primer svetilki Lolita in Black Cherry. Slamnikarstvo je pomemben del slovenske kulturne dediščine, saj je bilo med 18. in 20. stoletjem med pomembnejšimi obrtmi na Slovenskem. Žal pa je začela po drugi svetovni vojni tradicija pletenja slamnatih kit in izdelovanja slamnikov zamirati. Da ne bi šla popolnoma v pozabo, danes skrbi Slamnikarski muzej v središču Domžal. Prirodoslovni muzej je osrednji naravoslovni muzej v Sloveniji. Izhaja iz Deželnega muzeja, ki je bil ustanovljen že davnega leta 1821. Hrani pa nacionalno, evropsko in svetovno pomembne zbirke. Med njimi sta ustanovni zbirki muzeja – zbirka mineralov Žige Zoisa in zbirka konhilij, lupin mehkužcev z vsega sveta, Franca Hohenwarta Sanjske pokrajine akademske slikarke Apolonije Simon so kot opomin na ekološko katastrofo, ki nam preti. Te podobe pokrajin se k njej kar naprej vračajo, zato jih njena roka vztrajno zarisuje na platno. Tisto, kar v Apoloniji Simon vzbuja koncetracijo in energijo, pa je stara kitajska borilna veščina Tai ji quan.. *** AUTHOR DRAGO JANČAR Drago Jančar is one of the most prominent contemporary Slovenian authors. He has received numerous national and international literary awards for his work and is also considered the most translated Slovenian writer. To him, however, the greatest prize are the readers of his works. He firmly believes in free society and creativity. DESIGNER NIKA ZUPANC An internationally acclaimed designer, Nika Zupanc has been named a “real star” by the Wall Street Journal. Her designs, such as lamps, chairs, sofas, mirrors, as well as toys, have been labelled as “punk elegance” by the US edition of Elle magazine. Her unique designs have propelled her into the world of globally renowned designers. Quite a few of her products, for example, the Lolita and Black Cherry lamps, are already highly recognisable. THE CRAFT OF STRAW HAT MAKING The straw hat making craft is an important part of the Slovenian cultural heritage as it was one of the most important crafts in Slovenia between the 18th and the 20th centuries. Unfortunately, after World War II, the tradition of making straw braids and hats began to die down. This is why the Straw Hat Making Museum in the centre of Domžale is now making sure that this craft will never fall into oblivion completely. THE SLOVENIAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY The Slovenian Museum of Natural History is the leading museum of natural history in Slovenia. It was originally established in 1821 as the Provincial Museum of Carniola. It is now home to national, European and other internationally important collections. Among them are also the museum’s founding collections – the Žiga Zois’ mineral collection and the collection of conchylia, mollusc shells from all over the world, by Franz Hohenwart. PAINTER APOLONIJA SIMON The dreamy landscapes of academy-trained painter Apolonija Simon are like a reminder of an ecological disaster that looms over us. These images of landscapes keep coming to her, prompting her to relentlessly inscribe them into the canvas. It is the old Chinese martial art of Tai ji quan, however, that stimulates the focus and energy of Apolonija’s work.

SITARSTVO V vaseh med Škofjo Loko in Kranjem so iz konjske žime 400 let izdelovali barvita dna za sita, ki so jih izvažali po vsem svetu. To staro obrt, ki je že povsem izumrla, danes spet oživljajo. MESTNI MUZEJ LJUBLJANA Mestni muzej Ljubljana je že več kot stoletje del zgodbe slovenske prestolnice. Obiskovalcem ponuja globlje razumevanje življenja glavnega mesta in jim odpira nov pogled na njegove ulice in stavbe. PRIMOŽ OBERŽAN Primož Oberžan je vsestranski ustvarjalec, raziskovalec, filozof in po duši glasbenik. Je tudi ustanovitelj tolkalske zasedbe The Stroj, svoje zanimanje nad industrijsko estetiko pa razvija kot Federmeister. JAKA BABNIK Fotograf Jaka Babnik je sociolog kulture in zgodovinar. Njegove fotografije posegajo v različne časovne in prostorske dimenzije. Zelo pomemben je tudi kontekst predmeta, ki ga fotografira. GENOM ČLOVEŠKE RIBICE Svetovno znani raziskovalec, naravoslovec in okoljevarstvenik sir David Attenborough je nekoč dejal, da bi bila človeška ribica ena izmed desetih živali, ki bi jih vzel s seboj na Noetovo barko. Morda se skriva pojasnilo te izjave tudi v našem prispevku o razvozlanem genomu človeške ribice. *** SIEVE MAKING For 400 years, horsehair was used to make colorful sieve plates in the villages between Škofja Loka and Kranj. The sieves were then exported around the world. This old craft completely died out, but it's now slowly being brought back to life. THE CITY MUSEUM OF LJUBLJANA For more than a century, the City Museum of Ljubljana has played an important part in the story of the Slovenian capital. It allows visitors to gain a deeper understanding of life in the city and gives them a new perspective on Ljubljana's streets and buildings. PRIMOŽ OBERŽAN Primož Oberžan is a versatile creator, researcher, philosopher – and a musician in his heart and soul. He is the founder of the percussion band The Stroj and continues to develop his interest for the industrial aesthetic as the Federmeister. JAKA BABNIK Photographer Jaka Babnik is a cultural sociologist and a historian. His photos immerse observers into various dimensions of space and time. The context of the objects he captures in his images is just as important. THE OLM GENOME The world-renowned explorer, naturalist, and environmentalist Sir David Attenborough once said that the olm was one of the ten animals that he would take with him aboard Noah’s Ark. Perhaps the elucidation to this statement is also hidden in our report about the unscrambled genome of the olm.

ŽIGA ZOIS Baron Žiga Zois je bil pomemben slovenski razsvetljenec. Visoko kultiviran, izobražen in premožen je razumel pomembnost kulture. Njej je namenil svoje življenje in bogastvo. Podpiral je širok krog ustvarjalcev, s katerim je ustvaril temelje slovenskega jezika in kulture. VLADIMIR LEBEN Likovni svet akademskega slikarja Vladimirja Lebna je zelo pester. Poleg zelo raznolikih likovnih tehnik in umetniških pristopov pritegnejo pozornost upodobljeni motivi. Ti zelo pogosto posegajo v svet živali, ki postanejo simbol vsega, kar nas obdaja. KOVAČIJA JEVANIŠ V dolini Kanomlje pri Idriji je vedno manj kovačev in le redki še obvladajo to staro veščino. Na domačiji Pr Jevaniš je stara kovaška delavnica, v kateri je še vse po starem. Pred desetletji je v njej nazadnje koval ded Sandija Bončine. Ta se zdaj sam na novo uči kovaštva.

Nacetova hiša v vasi Puštal pri Škofji Loki je ena najlepše ohranjenih starih kmečkih hiš v Sloveniji. Stara je več kot 500 let, njena podoba pa se v zadnjih 250 letih ni spreminjala. Posebna je tudi zato, ker ima dve enakovredni etaži in so v njej ločeno živeli stari in mladi. Staro poslikano pohištvo odraža izvirno kulturo preteklega časa. V Gorenjskem muzeju v Kranju imajo eno večjih zbirk poslikanega kmečkega pohištva v Sloveniji. Največ se je ohranilo poslikanih skrinj, omar, zibelk in drobnih predmetov. Veliko pozornosti namenjajo tudi konservatorskemu in restavratorskemu delu. V Litiji oživljajo opuščeni rudnik svinca in barita Sitarjevec. Ko so raziskovalci po skoraj 50 letih vstopili vanj, so bili presenečeni. V njem so odkrili edinstvene limonitne kapniške tvorbe, izredno hitro rastoče kapnike in druga naravna bogastva. Sitarjevec je postal naravna dediščina najvišjega pomena. Kotanje so značilnost kraškega sveta. V njih se nabira deževnica, njena višina pa je odvisna od letnega časa. Tako je v Pivški kotlini nastalo kar 17 slikovitih, različno obstojnih presihajočih Pivških jezer. Tu se je razvil tudi zelo pester živalski in rastlinski svet. O skrivnostih teh naravnih pojavov pripoveduje Ekomuzej Pivških presihajočih jezer. Eden najbolj dejavnih, žanrsko najbolj samosvojih pa tudi izrazno najbolj energičnih bobnarjev – tolkalcev v Sloveniji je Marjan Stanić. Vse, česar se loti, dela s strastjo in velikim entuziazmom. Če ne bobna, teče. Teče po 17 kilometrov na dan. Njegova tretja strast pa je kuhanje. A spoznajmo danes Marjana, ki se ga ne drži zaman vzdevek človek – ritem.

LIZNJEKOVA DOMAČIJA V osrčju Kranjske Gore stoji več kot 300 let stara mogočna kmečka hiša – Liznjekova domačija. Značilen primer slovenske alpske arhitekture je danes pravi živi muzej, ki svojo bogato etnološko zbirko predstavlja na zanimiv način. Muzej se je pridružil Alpskemu dnevu črnega kruha, delavnice peke kruha v stari krušni peči pa prirejajo vse leto. NEURESNIČENI PLEČNIK Mojstrovine velikega slovenskega arhitekta Jožeta Plečnika so neusahljiv vir navdiha. Nekatera njegova dela, ki realizacije zaradi takega ali drugačnega vzroka niso dočakala, so še danes videti drzne vizije. S pomočjo 3D-vizualizacije štirih izbranih Plečnikovih projektov za slovensko prestolnico se nam lepo razkrije vsa kompleksnost njegovih vizij. DAMIJAN KRACINA Damijan Kracina je akademski kipar in večmedijski ustvarjalec. V svojih umetniških projektih se ukvarja z na videz nenavadnimi fantastičnimi svetovi, sistemi in objekti, ki jih obravnava z veliko humorja in družbene kritičnosti. MUZEJ IGRAČ Medvedki, gugalni konjički, punčke, avtomobilčki, družabne igre … V otroškem muzeju Hermanov brlog igrače govorijo same zase. Pripovedujejo zgodbo o igri in igranju, o otroški domišljiji in iznajdljivosti. LECTARSTVO V RADOVLJICI Lectarstvo je starodavna obrt izdelovanja okrasnega peciva iz medenega testa. Na Slovenskem se je ta spretnost še ohranila in ponovno dobiva pomen. Med slovenskimi lectarji se s kar 250-letno tradicijo ponaša gostišče Lectar iz Radovljice, v katerem imajo tudi lectarsko delavnico in muzej. *** THE LIZNJEK HOMESTEAD In the heart of Kranjska Gora stands the Liznjek Homestead. This mighty farmhouse, which is over 300 years old, is a typical example of Slovenian alpine architecture. The house has been turned into a museum and today exhibits a rich ethnological collection. The museum has joined the Alpine Black Bread Day and holds workshops on baking bread in the wood-fired oven all year round. PLEČNIK’S UNREALISED WORKS The masterpieces of the great Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik are an endless source of inspiration. Some of his projects, which for some reason or other have never seen the light of day, remain bold and visionary creations to this day. The sheer complexity of his visions is beautifully presented through the 3D visualization of four of his metropolitan projects for the Slovenian capital. DAMIJAN KRACINA Damijan Kracina is an Academy-trained sculptor and a multimedia artist. In his projects, he deals with seemingly unusual fantasy worlds, systems and objects, which he tackles with a great deal of humour and social criticism. TOY MUSEUM Teddy bears, rocking horses, dolls, toy car, board games ... in the Children’s Museum Herman’s Den, toys speak for themselves. They tell the story of play, children’s imagination and ingenuity … GINGERBREAD MAKING IN RADOVLJICA Gingerbread making is an ancient craft of making decorative pastry from honey dough. In Slovenia, this skill has been preserved and is again gaining importance. Among Slovenian gingerbread makers, the Lectar Inn from Radovljica boasts a 250-year-long tradition. The inn also houses a gingerbread workshop and a museum.

BOGENŠPERK: Grad Bogenšperk ima v slovenski kulturni zgodovini posebej odlično mesto. V njem je svoja najbolj ustvarjalna leta preživel eden najznamenitejših mož naše preteklosti – vsestranski učenjak Janez Vajkard Valvasor. Prav na tem gradu je nastalo njegovo najpomembnejše delo Slava vojvodine Kranjske, ki je neke vrste enciklopedija Slovencev iz druge polovice 17. stoletja. GRAFIČNA OBLIKOVALKA DANIELA GRGIĆ: Danijela Grgić je študirala arhitekturo, vendar je že v času študija spoznala, da je njena velika ljubezen grafično oblikovanje. Danes pravi, da je oblikovalka vidnih sporočil, saj so se metode zelo spremenile. Zaljubljena je v gledališče, zato ni naključje, da ustvarja prav za gledališke hiše. BARBA ŠTEMBERGAR ZUPAN IN NIKO ZUPAN: Slovenija ima dolgo in bogato tradicijo oblikovanja gline. Poleg klasičnega lončarstva se vse več ljudi, tudi likovnih umetnikov, odloča za oblikovanje unikatne umetniške keramike. Barba in Niko Štembergar Zupan izdelujeta uporabno in okrasno.

Slovensko sonaravno in trajnostno gospodarjenje z gozdom predstavlja zgled vse več državam. Jama pod Babjim zobom se ponaša z velikimi kalcitnimi kristali in polžasto zavitimi kapniki, helektiti. Ladijske polene, votivne figure na premcih ladij, sodijo med dragoceno dediščino pomorstva. Slikarja Rudija Skočirja je zasvojila figura ženske, ki ji posveča velik del svojega ustvarjalnega opusa. V Istri je jesen čas tartufov in istrski beli tartuf je eden najbolj cenjenih na svetu. *** SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT Forests are the green lungs of our planet. They cover almost 60% of Slovenia’s surface area, making it the third most forested country in Europe. Slovenia is setting an example to more and more countries with its sustainable forest management, which is preserving the forest for future generations. THE CAVE UNDER BABJI ZOB The cave under Babji zob is one of the oldest in Slovenia. It lies below the rock face of the same name at an altitude of one thousand metres above sea level, which makes it quite difficult to access. It is adorned with beautiful dripstone formations, including large calcite crystals and spirally-formed speleothems called helictites, which are very rare in Slovenia and elsewhere. FIGUREHEADS Valuable maritime heritage includes figureheads, the carved wooden decorations found on the bows of ships, which were once believed to protect the sea vessels from disasters and unknown supernatural forces. PAINTER RUDI SKOČIR Painter, printmaker and illustrator Rudi Skočir used to depict miners but then became captivated by the female figure. His women are convincing, mysterious and always richly expressive. TARTUFARJI Slovenia is one of only four European countries where you can find truffles, the rare and valuable underground tubers. They are highly esteemed in cuisine for their distinct and strong taste, but their high price is also due to the popular belief that they are an aphrodisiac. On the Istrian peninsula, autumn is the time of truffles.

Kranj je zelo staro mesto z bogato zgodovino, stari del mesta je zaščiten kot spomenik. Snežna jama na Raduhi je najvišje ležeča jama v Sloveniji, bogata s kapniki, tudi takimi iz jamskega mleka. Zemljepisni muzej v Ljubljani hrani dragocena pričevanja o slovenskem ozemlju od 16. do 20. stoletja. Slikarka Ana Zavadlav je svoje poslanstvo našla v knjižni ilustraciji. Ana Haberman pa oblikuje umetniško keramiko, večinoma s tehniko ščipanja. *** Kranj is the fourth largest Slovenian town, and capital of the Gorenjska region. It was this town that gave the historical land of Carniola, its name. The town’s medieval city centre has been declared a historical and cultural monument. Snežna jama or Snow Cave on Raduha holds a special place amongst more than 12,000 known Slovenian caves. Located at over 1,500 metres above sea level, this is the highest-lying tourist cave in the country. Even though high alpine caves typically have few cave formations, this cave features many of them. The Geographical Museum in Ljubljana stores maps of different dimensions and subject matter, dating from the 16th through to the 20th century. Most cover Slovenian territories and neighbouring lands. The first map to reference Slovenian territory as an separate unit was drawn in the middle of the 16th century. Painter Ana Zavadlav found her calling in illustrating books, predominately for children and teenagers. Her illustrations delight readers and the professional community alike. Though ceramic artist Ana Haberman has trained as a cultural anthropologist, she found working with clay and bluish-green glazes so alluring that she dedicated herself to making unique ceramic pieces. Each piece is hand-made, mainly by employing the ‘pinching’ method.

Most na Soči sodi med pomembna evropska arheološka najdišča, posebej bogate so najdbe iz železne dobe. Ostanki rimskega obrambnega sistema Claustra Alpium Iuliarum so največji rimskodobni spomenik na slovenskih tleh. Kombinat arhitekti gradijo arhitekturo v skladu s trajnostnimi načeli. Tiskar Janez Rozman je čuvaj črne umetnosti in srednjeveške kulturne dediščine. Posebnost slovenske kulturne krajine so zidanice, ki zadnja leta odpirajo svoja vrata tudi turistom. *** Most na Soči is one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe. Particularly rich are the finds from the Iron Age, also referred to as “Sveta Lucija Culture”, named after the old name of this settlement. Today, the Cultural and Historical Trail runs through the town, which takes visitors through its three-thousand-year history. Claustra Alpium Iuliarum was an Alpine barrier that protected the late Roman Empire from the barbarians. At its inner borders, the territory of present-day Slovenia was also a part of this defence system. In terms of its importance, it can easily contend with the much more famous Hadrian’s Wall in Britain and the Limes on the Rhine in Germany. In just over a decade, Kombinat Architects have attained a prominent position on the Slovenian architecture scene. They tread carefully into the environment with their projects, not wanting to destroy the balance as they build. At the same time, they look for a new potential in the space that would allow them to apply their knowledge in original ways. Printer Janez Rozman, who calls himself the keeper of the black art, is an expert on the history of printing. He has even produced a replica of Gutenberg’s wooden press, which was used by the inventor of the printing press in 1455 to print the first Bible. The reconstruction of the press is now on display at Bled Castle, while, at his home, master Janez has set up a veritable museum of printing. Slovenia is a wine-producing country divided into three main wine-growing regions. One of them is the Posavje wine-growing area whose specialty are its vineyard cottages, known as zidanice. Most of them can be found in the Dolenjska region. In the recent years, these vineyard cottages have also opened their doors to tourists.

Bela krajina je dežela tradicije in neokrnjene narave. Sedem alpskih držav se je povezalo v projekt Triple Wood, katerega cilj je promocija lesene gradnje. Ornitolog Tomaž Mihelič je izjemen poznavalec ptic, tudi soavtor novega Atlasa ptic Slovenije. Slikarko Joni Zakonjšek zaznamujejo narava in zenovski dojemanje sveta. Tolminska korita so ena največjih naravnih znamenitosti Posočja. *** In the southeast of Slovenia lies Bela krajina, a very special region with a long tradition, which is partly due to its remoteness from the main transport routes. It boasts a pristine nature as well as a unique and living cultural heritage. Wood has been a traditional building material in the Alpine region for centuries. The international Triple Wood project, which has brought together seven countries from the Alpine region, including Slovenia, was started with the desire to promote good practices in sustainable timber construction. An example of such construction is a tree house in Celje, which has won the European Carbon Smart Communities Award. Ornithologist Tomaž Mihelič is a remarkable expert on birds. He has been involved in numerous bird protection and conservation projects at the national bird watching and research society “DOPPS – Birdlife Slovenia”. One of his most recent and major projects is the latest, Atlas of Birds of Slovenia, of which he is a co-ordinator and co-author. The painter Joni Zakonjšek is characterized by nature and a Zen-like perception of the world. Although her basic motifs are simple, she achieves the desired effect through layers of colour and the play of light. The Tolmin Gorges are one of the biggest natural attractions of Posočje, an area along the Soča River in the west of the country. These picturesque and wild gorges represent the lowest and probably the most beautiful entry point into Triglav National Park.

Zgodovina Ankarana se je začela pisati v 12. stoletju, danes je to predvsem obmorski turistični kraj. Krn, najvišji vrh Krnskega pogorja, se ponaša tudi z največjim visokogorskim jezerom v Sloveniji. Sloviti industrijski oblikovalec Oskar Kogoj ustvarja svoje izjemne umetnine že šest desetletij. Notranjski park je eden izmed treh regijskih parkov v Sloveniji, spoznali ga bomo skozi oči biologa Jošta Stergarška. Bohinjska planina Laz je ena izmed redkih, kjer planšarska tradicija ni nikoli zamrla. **** Though the Slovenian coastline measures only 47 kilometres, it holds many interesting sites. Ankaran is a small seaside town right near the border with Italy. It is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves; today it is primarily a tourist destination. Its greatest attractions are the former Benedictine monastery, the only Slovenian salt meadow and a dune made out of shells, which is a rarity in Europe. Around 1.7 million people visit the Slovenian mountains each year. The mountains are traversed by over 10 000 km of hiking trails and count about 180 Alpine huts, bivouacs and shelters. Above the central part of the Soča Valley lies Krn, the tallest mountain of the Krn range, boasting Slovenia’s largest high-altitude lake. The world-renowned Slovenian designer Oskar Kogoj is celebrating the 60th anniversary of his creative work this year. His masterpieces are kept in more than a hundred museums at home and abroad. They reflect nature, the spiritual messages of the ancient civilisations and the Slovenian cultural heritage. Slovenia is among the most bio-diverse countries in the EU and features a very diverse landscape. 13% of its territory falls under various levels of protection. Its protected areas include three regional parks, among them the Notranjska park, where biologist Jošt Stergaršek works. The Bohinj area, situated in the Triglav National Park, has been the biggest Alpine dairy centre in Slovenia for centuries. As recently as in the mid-twentieth century, almost 50 living mountain pastures could be found here, whereas today there are only half as many left. Laz is one of the two mountain pastures in Bohinj, where the Alpine dairy farming tradition never died out.

Mokrišča so med najbolj ogroženimi ekosistemi na našem planetu. Grad Snežnik velja za enega najlepših v naši državi, danes ga upravlja Narodni muzej Slovenije. V podzemlju Celja je na ogled edinstveno arheološko najdišče v naši državi, izhaja iz časov rimske Celeie. Tomaž Perko je eden redkih slikarskih mojstov, ki še obvlada stare slikarske tehnike neštetih lazur in modeliranja z barvo. Zakojška grapa v Cerkljanskem hribovju skriva divjo, neokrnjeno naravo. *** WETLANDS Wetlands are one of the most endangered ecosystems of our planet. Those that are recognized as internationally important are protected by the Ramsar Convention. Three Slovenian wetlands have in fact made it to the Ramsar List – Lake Cerknica, the Sečovlje Saltpans and the Škocjan Caves. SNEŽNIK CASTLE Snežnik Castle, situated in the south of the country, on the edge of extensive forests, is regarded as one of the most beautiful in Slovenia, and one of the few that has managed to preserve its original fittings from the second half of the 19th century. It was first mentioned in written records in 1269 in connection with the Lords of Snežnik of the time. After the Second World War, the castle went into the hands of the state and is now managed by the National Museum of Slovenia. THE ROMAN CELEIA In the underground of today's Celje, the third largest city in Slovenia, there is a unique archaeological site on display to its visitors. The remains of the Roman Celeia can be found there, a rich and highly populated city also referred to as the second Troy. A walk through the ancient labyrinths reveals the beauty of Celeia, which was completely destroyed by the Huns in 475. PAINTER TOMAŽ PERKO Tomaž Perko is one of the few master painters who is still adept at the old painting techniques of applying countless glazes and modelling in colour. He is an excellent portrait painter, a sensitive observer of nature and a leading representative of sacral painting in Slovenia. THE ZAKOJCA RAVINE The Cerkno hills in the west of Slovenia are crisscrossed with numerous ravines and gorges, hiding wild, unspoiled nature. Most of the ravines are difficult to hike or are inaccessible for ordinary hiking. The Zakojška grapa or the Zakojca Ravine doesn’t have a marked pathway either, so visiting it is a true adrenaline experience.

V Bohinju so pripravili že 13. Mednarodni festival alpskega cvetja, s katerim se poklonijo tamkajšnjemu cvetličnemu bogastvu. Blejski vintgar je prva soteska v Sloveniji, ki so jo konec 19. stoletja uredili za turistični obisk. Biolog Miha Krofel je eden največjih poznavalcev velikih zveri pri nas. Umetniški opus slikarja Mateja Metlikoviča ima poudarjeno duhovno dimenzijo. Poljak Piotr Skrzypiec s svojimi fotografijami predstavlja lepote Slovenije, ki so ga povsem zasvojile. *** INTERNATIONAL WILD FLOWER FESTIVAL IN BOHINJ In the heart of the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park lies Bohinj, an oasis of peace and unspoiled nature. As this is a meeting point of the Alpine and Mediterranean worlds, the Bohinj area features an outstanding biotic and botanical diversity. In late spring, when nature is at its best and the meadows bloom, the people of Bohinj pay homage to their floral treasures with the International Festival of Wild Flowers. THE BLED VINTGAR GORGE In the Triglav National Park also lies the Bled Vintgar Gorge.The beautiful gorge was created by the Radovna, the Alpine river which forges its way across the valley through narrow crevasses. Bled Vintgar was the first gorge in Slovenia arranged for tourist visits at the end of the 19th century. BIOLOGIST MIHA KROFEL Slovenia is home to three large European beasts – the bear, the wolf and the lynx. While the population of bears and wolves is growing, the lynx is on the verge of extinction. One of the greatest experts on large beasts in Slovenia is biologist Miha Krofel, who also takes part in various international research projects in Africa and Asia. PAINTER MATEJ METLIKOVIČ the artistic oeuvre of painter Matej Metlikovič has a pronounced spiritual dimension. He paints on canvas, wood and paper, and also produces stained glass. He seeks inspiration in the great painters, as well as literature and music, to which he frequently resorts during his work in the studio. PHOTOGRAPHER PIOTR SKRZYPIEC In spite of its small size Slovenia is an extremely diverse country at the crossroads of the Alpine, Mediterranean, Pannonian and Dinaric worlds. Due to this diversity, it is also particularly interesting to photographers. Piotr Skrzypiec from Poland was so enthusiastic about Slovenia that he made it his home and now portrays its beautiful features in his photographs.

Marjan Pipenbaher je eden izmed najbolj priznanih evropskih projektantov mostov in drugih premostitvenih objektov. Šmartno v Goriških Brdih je arhitekturni biser te gričevnate pokrajine, ki jo mnogi primerjajo s Toskano. Jaka Ivančič je vse bolj priznan krajinski fotograf, njegov talent je prepoznal tudi National Geographic.

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.
