Once upon a time, there lived a lord in the Ljubljana Castle. This lord had a beautiful daughter. She wanted a husband who would pamper her with only the finest sweets. The lord gave in to his daughter's wish and let it be proclaimed across the land that the man who made the most delectable cake for his daughter would be rewarded with her hand in marriage.
Ljubljana Gets Its Own Dessert: the Ljubljana Cake
The Ljubljana Cake features ingredients characteristics of all the Slovenian regions: pumpkin seeds, chestnuts, honey, buckwheat and figs. The cake was formally introduced on 8 November 2012 during the St. Martin's Day celebrations at the Ljubljana Castle. Since Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia and the centre of activity, it is appropriate that the Ljubljana Cake brings together ingredients from various parts of the country.
Spanish Sculpture from the 14th to the 18th Century
This exhibition, which presents a selected sample of the wonderful sculpture collection of the National Museum of Sculpture (Museo Nacional de Escultura) from Valladolid, takes a stroll through the centuries of the heyday of Spanish sculpture.
It affords an insight into a carefully selected range of the biggest names within sculpture of that era: the pioneers that brought the beginnings of Flemish realism and the Italian Renaissance to Castile – Alonso Berruguete belongs among them –, and the foreigners, who like Juan de Juni, settled in this territory ... In Spain, which was spurred on by the great Imperial drive on its conquering trips to Flanders, Italy and the New World, there is practically no end in sight to the continuous exchange of artists, techniques and works. National Gallery of Slovenia, Ljubljana until January the 6th 2013.
The last month of 2012 is the right time to start the countdown to 2013 in a festive mood!
