Here is another batch of doors from the Slovenian coast to lure you over.
Today let’s look back again at a June afternoon spent in the biggest Slovenian port city Koper 20 km south of Trieste, even though you wouldn’t guess it’s a port from these photos. Slovenian coast is bilingual territory, so the city also has the Italian name Capodistria, meaning the boss of the Istria peninsula.
Today’s selection begins with a peculiar setup of the regional headquarters of the political party Levica with five MPs, which does little to hide its vocation with its name and symbol, since Levica means left hand and the star is self-explanatory. The motto on the door translates as “prosperity for all, not just for the handful”. The two white words on red in the windows say “equality” and “fraternity”, which is all very fine, it’s the less visible word in red on top of the door – where one would expect “liberty” – that raised my eyebrows. The word is SAMOPOSTREŽBA. It means “self service”.
From there we continue to the historical centre, which used to be an island, where several magnificent churches and other grand buildings await. There will be one more door post from Koper but for more details you will have to visit it yourself. Suffice to say, the arches and the doors are lovely.
And finally, I wish to say a big Thank You to all who left a comment to my previous post about my camera trouble. I was impressed and you confirmed my conviction that the blogging community is the best thing there is. As it is – I will leave it to a pro to fix it. I’m not savvy enough. When I googled the error message that I’ve been getting (to click the shutter button again), I found a neat little video showing how to get my mirror unstuck and thought that must be it, but alas, my mirror is not stuck. Something else is wrong.
PS: How about these three rows of ugly ads, WordPress? Jeeeez.
