updated 2 days ago

Established in 2004, KUD Kentaver started as a vehicle for Dejan Koban and Veronika Dintjan to organise poetry readings in a somewhat more relaxed manner, which they thought was lacking at that time. While the first evenings were organised in the Celica Hostel, by the end of 2005 the pair took over the Young Rhymes series and has since been more or less preoccupied by it and the festival of the same name that has emerged over time.

Coal Mining Museum of Slovenia 2019 Wooden supports Photo Kaja Brezocnik.jpg The Coal Mining Museum of Slovenia is dedicated to the social history and technological development of coal mining, as practised in the Šaleška Valley, a coal-rich region around the city of Velenje. As befits such an establishment, a significant part of it is located at the abandoned underground tunnels of the Škale pit, dug beneath the Velenje Power Station. Thus the museum presents coal-mining both through a live experience of entering the museum through a 160 m deep shaft as well as by displaying mining equipment and depicting the lives of miners, their ways and customs.

Set up by experts from Velenje Museum, the museum is managed by the Velenje Coal Mine, the largest and most state-of-the-art coal mine in Slovenia.

The Franja Partisan Hospital at Dolenji Novaki near Cerkno is a cluster of functionally-arranged Partisan hospital facilities located in the narrow, barely accessible Pasice Gorge, which is itself a natural attraction. The hospital complex comprises 14 wooden buildings and several small auxiliary facilities which were gradually set up in the period from December 1943 to May 1945.

The hospital was among the best-equipped of clandestine partisan hospitals, with an operating room, an X-ray apparatus, a care facility for the disabled, and a small electric plant. Most of the equipment was preserved in situ till the flood in 2007. A complete renovation was finished in May 2010. The hospital is administered by Idrija Municipal Museum.

Franja has received a renowned award presented by the Committee for European Heritage, the European Heritage Label, and is also on a Tentative List of the candidates for a UNESCO World Heritage List.
