Today we had the honour to welcome our President, Borut Pahor, who is on an official visit in South Korea.
It was again very lively at Slovenia House. The day started off with a Press conference and was continued by a visit of our President Borut Pahor. Slovenia House was the first stop on his official visit in South Korea. The reception started off with some short speeches and was continued in a relaxed setting. This way the president was able to chat with our Olympians, the fans. The president was also welcomed by our 'Kurent' gro
Kurent, who is also known as Korant, is a traditional carnival figure from Slovenia. It is the most popular figure especially in the areas of Ptujsko and Dravsko polje, as well as Haloze. The arrival of the Kurent symbolises the beginning of a new life, which comes with springtime. Therefore, the figure is highly respected.
