60th Anniversary Event
Dress Code: Smart Casual (Please note that there will be a 10 minute walk to/from the venue)
The bus shuttle will take us to Škofja Loka which represents the cradle of the Award program in Slovenia. The town and castle are located not far from Lake Bled (39 km). Dominating the town below and visible from the entire surrounding countryside, Loka Castle is not only one of the finest castles in all of Slovenia, but also houses one of the country’s most impressive museum collections.
First officially mentioned in the early 13th century, it served as the administrative seat for the vast feudal estates that were under the domain of the powerful Bishops of Freising from Bavaria for more than eight centuries. As with the rest of the old town, the castle had to be completely restored after the great earthquake of 1511, so the current ground plan dates from just after this time.
