History of Slovenia

The first evidence of human habitation on the territory of the present-day Slovenia were found in year 250.000 BC

In 6th century Slovenians move into this area. The first independent state was called Karantania. later another independent Slovenian state was formed in Panonian region, called Lower Pannonia. This state did not last long. The third independent state of Slovenians was formed more than thousand years later in 1991.

In 1918 Slovenia joined with other southern states in forming the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenians as part of the peace plan at th end of World War I. On December 23 1990 88% of Slovenia's population voted for independence in a referendum and on June 25, 1991 the Republic of Slovenia declared its independence. A relatively bloodless 10-day war with Yugoslavia followed and Yugoslavian forces withdrew.

A few photos of Slovenia

Hi there!

This is my first post on this blog. I want to share with you some photos which i took with my camera.

This is a view of an old stone bridge, which leads to the center of Škofja Loka ... my hometown.

If i get up early i can see that kind of view from my window. Well, i don't see it often. :-)

Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia. The most beautifull is in December. It's full of color lights, snow, music and people who want to entertain themselves.

Slovenia has a short sea cost. The only island lies on lake Bled. It's a beautifull lake surrounded by Alps. A lot of tourists and weddings come here to ring on a wish bell.

On the island you can swim, in the winter you can ice-skate, or you can go with "pletnja". Pletnja is a traditional boat which can carry you on Bled's island.
