Cultural events: HISTORY OF NOVO MESTO AND ITS MOVABLE HERITAGE (Exhibition)
Within the framework of European Capital of Culture, The Museum of Dolenjska will present the urn artistry of Novo mesto with an exhibition of documentary photography and a prestigious monograph on urns from Novo mesto. In the early Iron Age period (8th - 4th century BC), Novo mesto was a large center of population with a large fortified settlement on Marof hill, around which several barrow cemeteries and individual burial mounds have been found. The archaeological excavations, which have been taking place ever since the end of the 19th century, have revealed fifty-three earthen mounds with over thousand studied graves from the early Iron Age, which included a large number of archaeological artifacts. Among them, there are nine bronze urns that represent the height of artistic expression of Iron Age Europe. As an important contribution to global cultural heritage, urns from Novo mesto remind us of the important role Dolenjska region had in the first millennium BC in development of European culture. The urn artists from Novo mesto were among the leading creators in a period when European civilization was only emerging. As the keeper of this important heritage, The Museum of Dolenjska strives to present the public the urns whose aesthetic values still shine after so many centuries, even though they were cast in fragile bronze. Opening Hours: Monday-Friday: 9:00-18:00; Saturday+Sunday: 9:00-13:00 in14:00-17:00.

Cultural events: Wheel, 5,200 years
Apart from featuring the world's oldest surviving wooden wheel with an axel, found by archaeologists at the Ljubljana Moors in 2002, the exhibition presents the Ljubljana Moors' prehistoric pile-dwelling culture and the history of the invention of the wheel. The Ljubljana Moors are a site where archaeologists found more than 10,000 objects dating from different periods in history. The remains of the prehistoric pile-dwelling culture that developed in the area have been given UNESCO World Heritage status. The most important of all the finds discovered at the Ljubljana Moors is the world's oldest surviving wooden wheel, crafted between 3350 and 3100 BC. Expert analyses suggest that the ash wood wheel and its oak wood axle were made using a remarkably advanced technology, which took into consideration fluctuations due to wood expansion and contraction and included sophisticated methods for joining parts. The exhibition is accompanied by a wide and varied programme of educational and other events. To learn more about the world's oldest wooden wheel and view a virtual exhibition on it, please visit the official website dedicated to it. Read more about the Ljubljana Moors >>

Cultural events: Urša Vidic: Crystal Sea - spatial installation
In recent years, Urša Vidic has focused on the transfer of 2D images, such as paintings, film and animated scenes as well as advertising posters, to complex spatial layouts. She draws these types of images from previous historical periods and film genres, including them in her own imagery through various visual media. On this occasion, the artist brings to life the idea of the sublime, as reflected in Romantic painting of the 19th century. In particular, the project highlights the work ‘The North Sea’ (1823-24) by painter Caspar David Friedrich, which serves as the basic inspiration for her design of so-called ‘ice’ objects. Open daily from 10:00 to 18:00.

The exhibition project Minuet for Him includes eye contact with a figure who is “hidden”, set up on the level of the naval, and looks down towards the floor. Open daily from 10:00 to 18:00.
