Slovenians worldwide celebrating Culture Day

Ljubljana, 7 February - As Slovenians at home celebrate Culture Day on Friday in honour of poet France Prešeren (1800-1949), the holiday is traditionally celebrated by Slovenians around the globe, be it in cities with Slovenian diplomatic missions or among Slovenian minority members in the country's neighbours. It is no different this year.
