Photographer's Note

Main street of Mojstrana at midday ... a beautiful quiet village with many signs and smell of farming. Apple orchards line the street.

At 641m Mojstrana lies at the confluence of the Triglavska Bistrica and the Sava Rivers, on the edge of the Triglav National Park. There is evidence of 14th Century mining and iron working here. Present-day Mojstrana is home to a few generations of distinguished mountaineers and skiers. Top climbers continued the tradition of Triglav guides from the Classical period, and took part, amongst others, in Himalayan expeditions reaching a few 8000 meter peaks via difficult new climbing routes. Free-climbing, too, has achieved European standards. Skiers, both men and women, boast a fine set of national champions in all branches of skiing, with two Medalists in slalom at Olympic Games.

Mojstrana has 1211 inhabitants according to 2002 census.
