Bežigrad in the spotlight

Bežigrad in the spotlight

From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. as part of its first days as a ‘green ambassador’, Bežigrad District will be showcasing its work carried out during this and previous electoral mandates for a more beautifully managed environment and activities intended to encourage residents to spend more time outdoors. 

A cultural programme will feature members of the Cintare folk choir, musicians from the Franc Šturm music school, and the grand finale will be a showcase of Slovenian dances by members of the Emona folklore group. The famous fried potatoes cooked by members of Bežigrad Tourist Association will be available for tasting as well as produce from the Pr’ Konc eco farm.

In line with August’s theme of sustainable tourism, Bežigrad District Authority has produced a leaflet on Plečnik’s Bežigrad, which will take visitors to Bežigrad to four of Plečnik’s creations, which it’s possible to see on foot or by bike. Prof. Peter Krečič, author of the text of the leaflet and an expert on Plečnik’s works will be presenting the leaflet in the Point.For You. info centre at 7 p.m.

The programme also includes a short film on the theme ‘Ljubljana - European Green Capital 2016’ film, made by pupils from Milan Šuštaršič primary school.
