Elements of culture from nineteen historic towns that emphasise their unique character are included in the rich and diverse programme of the Spoonful of Culture cultural and culinary card covering twenty incredible experiences to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Association of Historic Cities of Slovenia. The purpose of the card is also to connect different historic towns through culture.
