Das Erbe Unserer Welt is a specialist magazine in the German-language, delivered to 70,000 National Geographic subscribers, which primarily presents world heritage, nature, culture, gastronomy, and wellness.

Historic Slovenian towns, covered by the Association of Historical Towns of Slovenia, are presented in four groups: Walled Towns, which includes Piran, Škofja Loka, Kranj, Celje, and Ptuj; Along the Path of Traditional Handicraft, which presents the traditions of Tržič, Idrija, Jesenice, Radovljica, and Kamnik; Mysterious Power of Silence, which includes Novo mesto, Kostanjevica na Krki, Slovenske Konjice, and Šentjur, and In Vino Veritas, which includes a rich offer of Koper, Žužemberk, Metlika, and Brežice.

Old Slovenian towns and cities, which are proud of their treasures, are connected under the Association of Historical Cities of Slovenia.

The Association of Historical Cities of Slovenia was founded to foster cooperation among like-minded towns, cities, individuals and companies, and its members are well aware that the old, historical centres of such places are both artistic treasures and tourist attractions. We thus strive to maintain everything our ancestors created over the decades, centuries, and even millennia, as this represents an evolving record of their lives, daily work and creativity. All this with one goal – to preserve everything that gives our country its soul. 

You are invited on a journey through 14 historical towns and cities, where stories are poured into adventures, and adventures into precious memories.
