Ena od postaj preteklega konca tedna je bila v Ogleju, v starem rimskem mestu (področje je bilo naseljeno baje že v prazgodovini), kjer sem si končno ogledala te krasne starokrščanske mozaike. To bi morala storiti že zdavnaj!
Kakorkoli, tudi bazilika je veličastna. Najraje imam take cerkve – stare in predvsem nenačičkane. Tam ni časa in svetloba je… ah! :)
One of the stops in the past weekend was in Oglej (italian = Aquileia) in Italy, an ancient roman town (the place was supposedly inhabited already in prehistory), an area just across the Slovenian-Italian border still heavily inhabited also by Slovenes.
Although it is only about an hour drive away from my hometown Ljubljana it was only now that I finally went to see those beautiful mosaics. I should have done that earlier!
Anyway, the basilica is magnificent, too. I like this kind of churches most – old ones and above all not to gingerbready. It is the place where time doesn’t exist and the light is… ah! :)
