EXCURSION TO THE TECHNICAL MUSEUM OF SLOVENIA AND MUSEUM OF POST AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS

This time our trip was somehow different, more cultural, as on a September’s Sunday we went to see two museums, namely Technical museum of Slovenia in Bistra and Museum of Post and Telecommunications in Polhov Gradec. The weather was sour all day long, but we had some luck, as there was no rain during the day. It overtook us towards the end of our trip while walking on Blagaj path, but that did not stop us and we walked the entire path, at the same time we had a great time watching interesting things.

It is always very educational to visit a museum! — Travel-Slovenia

Our day started with morning coffee and chocolate milk, at the same time we finished our day plan. Our first stop was Bistra and a tour of the Technical Museum of Slovenia, we spent most of our day in it. The museum is located in a former Carthusian monastery and is only twenty kilometers away from Ljubljana. Between the monastery walls, permanent collections are on display on more than 6000 m2 of exhibition surfaces – printing, agriculture, road transport, textiles, electricity, fishing, hunting, carpentry, forestry, and water-powered installations.

TRIP TO GRMADA ON MALA GORA

This time we took a little family trip to an 887 meters high hill Grmada in Lower Carniola. Grmada is a viewpoint on the western side of Ribnica’s Mala gora with a nice view from the top. At first, we did not know if the trip will be possible, as it was raining all day on Saturday. But Sunday morning was fresh, little cloudy, but still, it was promising a nice day to take a trip.

Road took us towards small settlement Velike Lašče and after it to a village named Gornje Retje. As a quick fact, the village on the other side of the road is Dolnje Retje, where Slovenian poet, writer, dramatist, critic, and linguist Fran Levstik was born. If you are interested in history, we also suggest visiting the village and see his birth house.
