contemporary research

of the river Mur (Mur River) in Slovenia lies its twin city (Twin cities (geographical proximity)) Gornja Radgona. History It is not known when Radkersburg was first settled or where the first settlement was located. It is also not known when Radkersburg fell under princely territorial rule. Most likely, Radkersburg originally did not belong to the Duke of Styria (Styria (duchy)), but to an aristocrat to whom it had been given by the king (King of Germany). Contemporary

research suggests that Radkersburg was not founded by Ottokar II of Bohemia (1232-1278), but by Albert I of Habsburg (Albert I, Holy Roman Emperor) (1255-1308). The appearance of the city today is apparently based on a precise plan. Radkersburg was surrounded by a wall with towers in the end of the 13th century. It was elevated to an imperial fortress in 1582 by the Reichstag (Reichstag (Holy Roman Empire)) of Augsburg. Oberradkersburg (Gornja Radgona), on the other side of the Mur River, has been a part of Slovenia since 1919. The bridge across the Mur was reopened on October 12, 1969 which led to rapprochement between Austria and Yugoslavia.

Croatia, Slovenia In Slovenia and Croatia, St. Martin's Day (''Martinje'') marks the day when the must traditionally turns to wine. The must is usually considered impure and sinful, until it is baptised and turned into wine. The baptism is performed by someone who dresses up as a bishop and blesses the wine, this is usually done by the host. Another person is chosen as the godfather of the wine. The foods traditionally eaten on the day are goose and almost always home-made or store bought mlinci. 2005 * One month long European tour in Western Europe (Switzerland, Italy, Germany, France) and Eastern Europe (Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Poland, Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania) in January and February. * Small tour in Italy in May The first post-war national tournament was a hastily organized week-long competition in cup format from September 3 until September 9, 1945.

The Alps form a large mountain range dominating Central Europe, including parts of Italy, France, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Slovenia, Germany and possibly Hungary (if one includes the Günser Gebirge or the Ödenburger Gebirge in the Alps). In some areas, such as the edge of the Po Basin (River Po), the edge of the range is unambiguous, but where the Alps border on other mountainous or hilly regions, the border may be harder to place. These neighbouring ranges include the Apennines (Apennine Mountains), the Massif Central, the Jura (Jura mountains), the Black Forest, the Böhmerwald (Bohemian Forest), the Carpathians (Carpathian Mountains), and the mountains of the Balkan Peninsula. The south-easternmost extension of the Alps is to be found in Slovenia, including Pohorje, the Kamnik Alps and the Julian Alps (the last being shared with Italy). The town of Idrija may be taken as marking the dividing line between the Alps to the north and the Karst plateau to the south, which then leads on to the mountains of the Balkan Peninsula.

introduction to the general principles of Tarot play, serving as a springboard to more advanced 54-card, French-suited card games such as Point Tarock and Königsrufen (Königrufen). The game is widely played in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, and especially in the countries on the area of the former Austro-Hungarian Monarchy (Austria-Hungary), for which even the name ''Tarockanien'' has been coined: the Austrian variation of the game (and the variations thereof) is thus still widely popular among all classes and generations in Slovenia and Croatia, while in Hungary different rules are applied.

After the rise of communism, a survey taken in 1964 showed that just over 70% of the total population of Yugoslavia considered themselves to be religious believers. The places of highest religious concentration were that of Kosovo with 91% and Bosnia and Herzegovina with 83.8%. The places of lowest religious concentration were Slovenia 65.4%, Serbia with 63.7% and Croatia with 63.6%. Religious differences between Orthodox Serbs, Catholic Croats, and Muslim Bosniaks and the rise of nationalism contributed to the collapse of Yugoslavia in 1991. Meanwhile Slovenia, under the presidency of Milan Kučan, and Croatia supported Albanian miners and their struggle for formal recognition. Initial strikes turned into widespread demonstrations demanding a Kosovan republic. This angered Serbia's leadership which proceeded to use police force, and later even the Federal Army (Yugoslav People's Army) was sent to the province by the order of the Serbia-held majority in the Yugoslav Presidency Council. * November 17 ** A catastrophic landslide in Log pod Mangartom, Slovenia, kills 7, and causes millions of SIT (Slovenian tolar) of damage.

Slovenia

'''Slovenia''' (

The territory, located in southern Central Europe

The Slavic (Slavic languages), Germanic (Germanic languages), Romance (Romance languages), and Hungarian (Hungarian language) languages meet here.

Historically, the current territory of Slovenia was part of many different state formations, including the Roman Empire and the Holy Roman Empire, followed by the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Austria-Hungary). In October 1918, the Slovenes exercised self-determination for the first time by co-founding the internationally unrecognized (list of states with limited recognition) State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs, which merged that December with the Kingdom of Serbia into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (renamed Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1929). During World War II, Slovenia was occupied and annexed by Germany (Nazi Germany), Italy (Kingdom of Italy), Croatia (Independent State of Croatia), and Hungary (Kingdom of Hungary (1920–46)).
