The program of the event Historial Škofja Loka 2017 will be held in any weather.   


Loka’s Historial is on its way!

Dear citizens and dear visitors!

The Path of Venus was one of the first medieval events, especially designed to revive and reawaken the ancient medieval spirit of Škofja Loka's old town centre. However, it was more than just that, the creation of the Path of Venus was the beginning of a way of carrying out in-depth research and of discovering our historical and cultural identity.

However, a new step had to be taken: a new path had to be trodden. Thus the Škofja Loka Historial, (The Škofja Loka Festival of History) was established. The Historial is a new uniform name for a series of historical and ethnological events, each of wich is designed to preserve and present, in both an original and authentic way, a part of the 100-year old local cultural and historical heritage of the Škofja Loka area.

In reality, the true wealth of the material and spiritual culture will be again revealed: traditional arts and crafts, which are based on a long guild tradition of ancient handicraft masters; rich recipes from the castle and traditional folk culinary arts as were savoured in ancient times by chancellor Santonini from Aquileia; an opportunity to learn about the medieval and renaissance music legacy by entering the world of dramatic medieval songs and ballads, and the town's pavements will again be a scene of renaissance dancing… And the event will become increasingly lively and more and more ours, Loka's authentic fair.

The Škofja Loka Historial, in addition to presenting a series of extremely interesting and authentic historic and ethnological events, also serves to make Škofja Loka a town where captivating and attractive tourism stories can be created from the riches of our own cultural heritage; a town whose stories present timelessness and the ability to connect different time periods.

Even when silent, Škofja Loka is full of stories. However, it does not mean that old stories need not be told anymore, nor that we cannot create new ones. Therefore, you are kindly invited to the events of Historial Škofja Loka 2017, where we will again together get to know Loka’s 'stories' and listen with interest to our history.
