It is a centuries-old Tržič tradition that was observed by Tržič shoemakers in the past. On this day they stopped working under lights in their workshops. Cobblers’ apprentices asked their masters for permission to make miniature houses during the work shift. Each apprentice grabbed the nearest “camboh” (a wicker bowl or basket), filled it with wood shavings, mixed everything with strong glue, set it on fire, and placed the basket onto the water. Since there no longer any cobblers’ apprentices in Tržič, the custom is kept alive by children from schools and preschools of Tržič. They gather together on St. Gregory’s Eve and float their miniature houses down the Tržič Bistrica. The programme is enriched by an exhibition of the “gregorčki” houses lasting several days and numerous accompanying events. Learn more here.

  • Ljubljana Apartment Sales

    Further to the recent News we posted on “Ljubljana Sells Best” we wanted to provide more information on Ljubljana real estate. The sales are nearly always apartments and always in the centre of town. The demand from foreign buyers for houses in Ljubljana is low as they want to be located very centrally and this means apartments. Ljubljana villas in for example the Rozna Dolina area are also priced at a level that is too high for most Slovenia real estate investors.

  • Ljubljana Sells best

    This year we have sold more real esate in Ljubljana than any other year. It seems investors from various parts of the globe see Ljubljana as perfect place to buy. Small, neat and improving year on year, with a fabulous centre and old town and with prices at a very competitive level. The most popular areas being the historic old town and the centre, and despite no cars being allowed in the old town, buyers seem to accept this with the positives that come with that. See our Ljubljana real estate section for more details.
