Bled

The Clothing of Slovenes and Other Europeans in a Bygone Era

24 May 2019
A wordy title for sure, but this fascinating little exhibition above the Bled Island souvenir shop is well worth seeing when on the island. Featuring small clay figures, the traditional dress of all the nations of the European Union is depicted in one room followed by the regions of Slovenia next door. What is remarkable is how similar all of the outfits are, yet the subtle differences are clear from one garment to the next, from one part of Europe to another. Truly charming.
