Ljubljana Art Galleries
The Slovenians are apparently the only nation that has a Culture Day as a national holiday. In Ljubljana culture is not merely a matter of prestige, but an entire way of life.
Art and culture have helped the Slovenians - wedged as they were between the more powerful German and Romance nations - to retain their own language and cultural identity throughout the centuries.
