botanical excursion to slovenia [photos]

[posted: ]  [0 comments]

in april, we went on a short botanical spring-excursion to slovenia. led by bozo frajman, we experienced a short glimpse of the slovenian culture, cuisine and – of course – the flora.

main stops were made in:

  • vaska skupnost lukovec, where, besides plants, we also found some interesting animals
  • podpec at the edge of the karst plateau, with the extremely rare moehringia tommasinii, which is known only from 6 locations along the karst edge in slovenia, croatia and italy
  • the lovely coast town of piran (slovenia owns 46.6 km of the adriatic coastline, that’s about 2 cm per citizen ;) )
  • ljubljana, the friendly slovenian capital
  • pot v pekel (the “road to hell”), one of the locations where the carniolian primrose (primula carniolica) is growing.
