    It looks so beautiful! Slovenia is near the top of my list of European countries that I would like to visit. Is there much of a language barrier when travelling there?

    Goodness, that sounds fascinating. I love the look of the castle, but I’m amazed by the mine. Did the miners have to wear anything in particular? I know Mercury is quite poisonous..

    Idrija sounds like an interesting place to spend a day or two! I’ve never been to a mine, and this sounds like a great place to learn about the industry and how it shaped the town and culture there. Thanks for sharing!
