Slovensko




























Festival of love



Festival of love is a literary festival flirting with music and visual arts, all within the realm of love. 


As the name suggests, the Festival of love is full of inspiration; each year choosing a new Slovenian castle as its residence. The premiere festival last year was hosted by the castle in Svečina, and this year the city core of the oldest and one of the prettiest Slovenian cities, Ptuj was immersed in love during the last weekend in March.
