Slovenian cards

This set of great slovenian cards was sent by Ivana. he contacted me via official site and asked me if i had portuguese used stamps. I had lots of them and sent them all to her. In return she sent me these beautiful cards. I love cards from Slovenia, i'm more than happy with this trade.

The 1st card she sent was this one of the Bohinj Lake in the Julian Alps. The colors are so great. I don't know if she knew but this card was in my favorites :D

Another one from the Julian Alps, in the kingdom of Triglav, the highest mountain in Slovenia and the highest peak of the Julian Alps.

Skrlatica is also a mountain in the Julian Alps and is among the highest peaks in Slovenia.

Postojna Cave is a network of 20 kilometres of passages, galleries and chambers into which experienced guides have accompanied more than 31 million visitors in the last 188 years. It is the largest cave in the “classic karst” and the most visited show cave in Europe. It was discovered in 1818 by Luka Cec and opened for visitors in 1819.
Visitors to the cave are dazzled by a wealth of speleothems: calcite formations, stalactites and stalagmites abounding in a variety of shapes, colours and age. The constant temperatureinthe caves ranges from 8 to 10° C.
Finally, a lovely snowy view from Ljubljana.
