That Slovenia is a case of good practice when it comes to intercultural dialogue was the main conclusion at a scientific conference marking one century of the Islamic community in Slovenia held in Ljubljana on Wednesday.

Mufti Nedzad Grabus noted as the conference opened that it was exactly one hundred years ago when the first mosque was built on the territory of present-day Slovenia, in Log Pod Mangartom in the north-west.

The mosque was built by Bosniak Muslim members of the Austro-Hungarian Army serving on the Isonzo Front in WWI so that they could perform their religious duties.” (Slovenia Times)
