Signs along the road

Highways in Slovenia are very modern, well- kept and most of the travelers enjoy their comfort. They are built on the tracks of old Roman highways dated 2000 years ago. That has a certain charm.

However, if you are more adventurous or if you go with us on some of the custom-made tours you have a chance to discover more authentic way of living in Slovenia. You get a whole new perspective of our local life. The scenic routes take us along some very cute local villages and neatly cultivated fields and meadows. Most probably you have noticed some unusual local architecture called KOZOLEC or even a small religious sign: a cross or a chapel?

European heritage is very diverse. Slovenian heritage contributes to its richness. These little, humble religious signs along the roads are one of the most unique ones. Slovenians, mostly Catholics were full of faith. Most of their work, daily duties and travel was dedicated to God. In the morning, just before they started to work on the field, or when on tour, before deciding which route to choose, had a break, stopped, prayed to Jesus, Virgin Mary or their local saint to give them a blessing for the day. At noon they always had a break, prayed and had a scarce lunch. Later continued working until sunset, when they were hiding back home. Around those crosses and chapels were usually planted LINDEN trees - our Slovenian symbol of faith and love. It was practical as well- the lush tree gave them a great refreshing resting spot.

Traveling with a private tour guide on a private tour, you profit in many ways: you get the authentic presentation of people living in the country, intriguing local stories and most important: you get to know the hidden treasures known by local tourist guides only.
