After being shown in Warsaw and Prague, the outdoor exhibition “I Feel Slovenia, I Feel Culture” is currently on display in Bled, the pearl of the Julian Alps.   

 

The outdoor photographic exhibition »I Feel Slovenia. I Feel Culture.« draws on the cultural heritage of Slovenia. A selection of 38 photographs by well-known Slovenian photographers, chosen by the Slovenian Government Communication Office and the Ministry of Culture, presents the cultural diversity of this country, and culture in the broadest sense of the word, as the foundation of national identity. The exhibition “I Feel Slovenia, I feel culture” also marked the start of joint activities of the Government Communication Office and other departments as part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.         

   
Slovenia is a country whose cultural heritage inspires and surprises – it was here that the oldest wheel and axle in the world were found. Slovenia is home to the biggest stone bridge in the world – the Solkan Bridge. Ljubljana is one of a network of twenty Secessionist or Art Nouveau cities around the world, and Jože Plečnik gave our capital the architectural spirit of eternity. The mercury mine in Idrija, which is today a museum, is on in the UNESCO World Heritage List, while the Škofja Loka passion plays are on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List, and still more local treasures could be named.              

   
The exhibition “I Feel Slovenia, I Feel Culture” will be on display on the shore of Lake Bled until 18 September 2017.
  

   
The exhibition is organised by the Slovenian Government Communication Office in cooperation with Slovenia Press Photo, the Slovenian Ministry of Culture, the related Slovenian embassies, and the Slovenian Armed Forces.
