Lučine is a tiny hamlet in the middle of Slovenia. It lies in a pre-alpine landscape that can rise to 1000m high peaks. Slovenia is the third most forested country in Europe (after Finland and Sweden) and indeed the area around Lučine is full of trees. Just east of Lučine is a protected nature zone called the Polograjsko Hills. Getting past that you will arrive on to the Ljubljana Basin. This large relatively flat area in the middle of Slovenia is where most of the nation’s citizens live. The capital Ljubljana is located in the middle of the plain. Less than 30 kilometres seperate the lightly populated green hills around Lučine with the metropolitan area that is the heart of Slovenia.
Slovenia is on the borders of three tectonic zones, those of the Alps, the Dinaric Alps and the Pannonian Basin. That makes the country sensitive to earthquakes. The last major earthquake to strike Ljubljana was in 1895. Many of the old buildings in the city were destroyed and had to be rebuild. One of the monuments that did survive was the 15th century Ljubljana Castle. Build on a hill it still dominates the city. Two beautiful barock churches capture you attention in the city centre. They are the Cathedral and the bright red Church of the Annunciation. They are seperated by the Ljubljanica River and the Triple Bridge that covers it. A little further to the east is the Tivoli city park, around which are located some of the finest museums of Slovenia. The small nation only became independent in 1991 but has a cultural history dating back to the Roman times. And long before that there is archeological evidence of prehistoric settlements in the area around Ljubljana.
