“The new Slovenian Prime Minister, Marjan Sarec, will travel to Berlin for a working visit next Friday, where he will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the Prime Minister’s Cabinet said today. As previously announced, it will be held in Brussels on Wednesday, where he will meet representatives of the European institutions.

Sarec, who took over the leadership of the Slovenian government in mid-September, will thus head to the German capital, where he will be hosted by the German Chancellor, on the first bilateral visit abroad.” (translated from Sio1)


“A campaign to promote Slovenian culinary arts in the US was successfully launched over the past two weeks, giving people in Ohio and Pennsylvania the chance to enjoy dishes prepared by Leon and Valentina Pintarič of Gostilna Rajh from the north-eastern Prekmurje region.

In what is the first in series of events of the Restaurant Slovenia campaign, six events took place, including at the Slovenian National Home and the Bratenahl Place Bistro restaurant in Cleveland, and the SNPJ Lodge in Imperial, Pennsylvania.

Jurček Žmauc, the chairman of the Slovenian-American Business Association (SABA), praised the Pintarič duo as ‘phenomenal representatives of the younger generation of Slovenian culinary experts and great promoters of Slovenia and its culinary culture.'” (Slovenia Times)
