The Prešeren Recital

Today, just like every year, a recital will take place on Prešeren Square in Ljubljana in honour of France Prešeren, arguably Slovenia‘s greatest poet. Members of Slovenian Association of Dramatic Artists will take turns in reciting/performing poems by Prešeren which is always plenty of fun, despite the sombre occasion, as Prešeren died on this day in 1849.

The Firm™ will – as every year for the past eight years – provide live streaming of the event (starting at noon local time), which you can see by clicking this link. And if you’re in the neighbourhood, plenty of museums and galleries charge no entrance fee today, so you’re more than welcome to visit a few.

Have a good one!
