Parlament julij 2017

Written by

Slovenia, once a part of Yugoslavia, gained its independence on June 25th, 1991. Today it is a state with a parliamentary system in which the most important role is played by the parliament as the legislative branch of power.

The democratic approach to lead the nation has a long tradition among Slovenians. A French jurist and political philosopher Jean Bodin with his works and mentioning a mediaeval ceremony from Carinthia inspired Thomas Jefferson when writing Declaration of independenceSlovenians in Cleveland are so proud they even put a plague Slovenians, Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of independence.

Rožnik - June

Written by

The month of Roses

June - the 6th month in a year, is called after ancient Roman goddess Juno: goddess for love and marriage. Most of Slovenians call this month JUNIJ. However, some of us, still remember old, Slavic name of June - ROŽNIK.

Roža in Slovenian language means a flower and often one very particular one- the ROSE. June meadows are generally full of colourful little flowers. However, our gardens are mainly decorated with scented blooms of most popular garden plants, the flower of flowers - roses. Slovenian roses are mainly a decoration only. We do not make rose oils or rose water- maybe for a personal use only. From time to time you will find a rose brandy or rose liquor, jam or marmalade or maybe as a decoration on your plate.

Kozolec - A Hayrack

Written by

The hay storage was one of the most important farmer’s works, if they wanted to have enough food for their animal throughout the cold and snowy winter. All around the world you would find similar ways, however in Slovenia they are very unique.

When you are out of the city, on the countryside, very soon you are going to notice interesting, free standing, vertical, wooden, and open and roofed constructions in the middle of the fields. They look as a goat and that is how they have got their name: KOZA or a goat in Slovenian Language.

St Gregory's day

Written by

In old Slovenian language, March is called sušec- dry month. It is one of the most positive months of the year: the winter is already very weak, here and there some colder days; however, sun is already high enough to embrace us with some gentle sunbeams.

First celebration of the months is devoted to women- in old communist days as well as today- women celebrated March 8, an International day of women's rights, men as a contrary celebrate March 10 as martyrs day and at the end of the month, March 25, religious people celebrate Mother's day.

On the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Slovenia is nowadays once very popular, than forgotten, lately revealing again so-called St Gregory's day- March 12. In an old calendar March 12 was the first day of Spring- the season, which brought longer days, more light and warmth. In our culture it is considered, that St Gregory’s day is the day of love. Quite often, you are going to hear, that on March 12 birds get married.
