Just Remember, There Is Someone Else Always Besides You, Trying To Find The Correct Sensation. I Might Never Know For Certain, When It’ll Be my Time. Though, I Don’t Believe It’ll Be Any Time Soon, Maybe Difficult On Finding A Correct Person.

I wanted to go on the top of Triglav with my friends this summer but unfortunately something came up...well, looks like I will have to do it in 2011.

And btw, they say that ''you are not a Slovene if you did not climb up on the top of Triglav at least once in your life''

Nice hub!

Interesting hub; I think Triglav in the coast of arms also occurs on the flag of Slevenia, right?

    On the top of the Triglav, there is a small tower, mado of metal. It is called Aljaz tower after the priest Jakob aljaz, who bought land at the top of the Triglav and build this tower. Now it is a symbol of Sloveneghood.

    Slovenian flag was raised at the tower on proclamation of Slovenian independence in June 1991.

    The tower is proclaimed as a site of national cultural importance for Slovenia.
