On a sunny June Saturday, members of our association took part in a professional excursion to Lake Wörthersee and a few nearby villages. One of these is the home of Christian Zeichen, a Slovene from Carinthia, on whose initiative groups of Carinthian tourists have been coming to Gradež for several years, so we wanted to return his visit somehow.

An exhibition of paintings by members of the Association of Visual Artists of Ljubljana in amateur local painters was concluded. It was held from 13 to 20 May 2019 at the Dom krajanov Turjak.

The Association for preserving heritage wishes all visitors of our website a happy, healthy and successful year 2019.

At the 90th anniversary of our association a delegation of our members visited a Slovene composer Jakob Jež, an honorary member and our long- time neighbour who now lives with his daughter in Ljubljana.

This autumn our association organized a special visit from fruit growers of Mozirje, who sent us a special »thank you« for a very well organised programme ...
