Ancient and modern
The people of Dolenjska
and Bela krajina live easily with their past and their culture.
You will see well kept museums with rich collections; galleries
of 20th century art; poets, writers and theologians celebrated with
a quiet pride; traditional crafts and music practised by young people.
The studio of internationally
renowned sculptor, Sandi Leskovec in Mirna is occasionally open
to visitors. Ask in Šentjernej for details of local pottery workshops
and look in the markets for locally made baskets, handmade wooden
toys and kitchenware. Bela krajina is well known for its painted
eggs and for clothes of hand spun and woven white linen, hence the
name, bela- white, krajina- landscape.
