Prešernov smenj
Prešeren's fair


Komaj znosna gneča. Barely sufferable crowd.


Najbolj luštne ptičje hiške, kar sem jih kdaj videla.
The cutest bird-houses I have ever seen.

Na vsakem vogalu kak gospod lajnar.
I do not know how this old street instrument is called in English,
but there was one on each corner of the town.

Prekrasna cerkev sv. Kancijana. The amazing church of St. Kancijan.

Zdravljica v različnih jezikih.
Our national anthem (written by Prešeren) in different languages.


Že kar nekaj časa sem imela namen obiskati tale kranjski Prešernov smenj, ampak, hudiča, niti v najbolj divjih sanjah si nisem mislila, da je to tako obsežna zadeva, res (Miro, pa to je huj k u Lublan za nou let!), kljub sončku in nasploh popolnemu zimskemu dnevu, ki je verjetno tja zbezal kar nekaj več ljudi kot bi jih sicer. Stojnicam ni bilo videti konca in ljudi se je trlo, po ulicah in v kulturnih ustanovah.

Saj bi rekla, da je nadležno, pa me ob takih prilikah vedno prešine nek topel občutek, da tolikšno število ljudi zanimajo tovrstne prireditve, ne samo potikanje po trgovskih centrih.


Skratka, privoščila sva si presna zavitka, skutnega in višnjevega, res božanska, malo kasneje, ko se je bilo mrazu vse težje upirati, še ajdov in jabolčni čaj, za domov pa nekaj mlečnih izdelkov, maslo, kislo mleko in jogurt.

So, these photos are from Prešeren’s fair in Kranj this past Sunday. It was a perfect sunny and pretty cold winter day.


The fair is one of the events honouring the day of death of our greatest poet and it is a national work-free holiday, with many cultural institutions having a free entry on that day.


The town of Kranj is a place where the poet had lived and worked for a few years, so we visited this historic house and stroll down the main square with numberless tempting stands offering lots of homemade goodies and traditional work. It was unbelievable crowdy, but beautiful.


We had cottage cheese and sour cherry raw strudels, both beyond divine, and for worming up a bit later buckwheat and apple teas.
