For those of you who were hoping to see a Slovenian translation of “Embassy of Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta”, fear not. I’m here for you.
Slovenia is one of the 105 countries with formal diplomatic relations with the 900-year-old Catholic order better known as the Knights of Malta or the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM); the embassy is conveniently located across a pedestrian street from the Ljubljana Cathedral. It looks like a very nice place to enjoy a really good bottle of wine or two.
More about the order? Try their official website here. To conspiracy buffs, my apologies. I simply don’t have the time at the moment to seek out accounts of the order’s secrecy and intrigue. Perhaps the next time I’m in Rome hanging out near their headquarters on the Via Condotti. If you know of any decent links to stories about how the knights serve as the planet’s true overlords, feel free to leave them in the comments.
And for the record, today’s Pic du Jour, the blog’s 608th straight, was snapped on 02 Sep 2015 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
