Earlier this year, just before the summer season started, the City Museum of Ljubljana opened a new permanent exhibition called Ljubljana. History. City. This presents a chronological look at the history of the land the city now stands on, from prehistoric times and the Pile Dwellers, who made the world’s oldest wooden wheel with an axle, up to the end of the 20th century, when Ljubljana became the capital of an independent Slovenia.
This week’s search through the archives has come back with a set of postcards from Škofja Loka (Bischoflack in German, as seen in some examples), the first town in Carnolia to get electric lighting and home to the Cappuchin Bridge, the oldest such structure in Slovenia.
We got in touch with the good people at Morigenos, the Slovenian Marine Mammal Society, and asked about their work with these lesser known residents of Piran.
