If you’re passing through Laško over the next three weeks, stop by the city museum (Muzej Laško) to check out the fifth KLAK photo exhibit, and not only because I won second place with the photo above and the one below.
The theme of the contest, sponsored by the Laško Akademski Klub (LAK), was brezdelje, which roughly translates, generally speaking, to both ‘idleness’ and ‘leisure’. Interesting to me was that the two English words can have widely contrasting interpretations –one negative, one positive– which led to a very fun afternoon of philosophizing between me and my keyboard.
This town has plenty more to offer of course: it’s home to Slovenia’s best large brewery and and well-visited and respected. The visitor’s center website is here.
