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.
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.
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.
