INTANGIBLE? VERY MUCH ALIVE!

Traditions and customs, countless forms of knowledge and belief, historical consciousness and geographical horizons, mythology and folk creativity, traditional skills and crafts: there is so much variety hidden in intangible heritage!

Attractive areas of Europe capable of weaving these intangible elements – that are nevertheless very much alive – into original tourism experiences, competed for the title of European Destination of Excellence in 2008. The title (in connection with the selected theme) is awarded by the European Commission in conjunction with the participating countries.

In Slovenia the winner of the prestigious title was the SOČA VALLEY with its stories on the theme of peace. The other intangible heritage finalists were IDRIJA with the FESTIVAL OF IDRIJA LACE and KRANJ with the PREŠEREN FAIR.

The Project was partly financed by the EU.
