Alenka Gotar: »The lifelong dream of our ancestors came true«

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Slovenia’s independence, we asked famous Slovenians what this anniversary means to them, whether they might remember certain events from that time – provided they were alive back then – whether their parents told stories of that period, and what an independent Slovenia means to them.

Opera singer Alenka Gotar, who represented Slovenia at the Eurovision in 2007, is delighted that the lifelong dream of our ancestors came true with the gaining of independence. She also understands the events of that time as a historical turning point.
