When "James Bond" makes a stop in Ribnica
The Hollywood star Pierce Brosnan, who is considered to be one of the most popular 007 actors, filmed some of the scenes from the film Death Train (1993) in Slovenia in the early 1990's. The film crew making the action film, which failed to achieve much success, filmed on the railway between Ljubljana and Kočevje, more specifically near the town of Ribnica. In the film, the actor played a UN agent who must prevent a Russian general from using nuclear bombs transported by a freight train. However, Ribnica and the Kočevsko region are actually mainly famous for their unspoilt nature, age-old forests, traditional food, and craftsmanship heritage.
