Slovenian TV Presenter’s Ode to the Passing Summer
Known for her role in the information program Odmevi on RTV Slovenia, Rosvita Pesek is a popular television presenter in Slovenia. Recently, she utilized social media to connect with her followers and share her reflections on the departing summer.
Pesek’s poetic description of nature’s transition from summer to autumn captured the attention of many. She spoke of the morning mists and warm earth heralding the end of summer, the explosion of colors that autumn brings, and the nostalgic act of retrieving jackets from storage in anticipation of cooler weather. However, her musings on the season were not merely superficial; she also delved into the emotional implications of the past summer.
Summer’s Impact in the Midst of a Pandemic
As Pesek reflected on the past summer, she acknowledged the unique trials it presented. For many, the summer was marred by difficulty, exhaustion, and tragedy, likely due to the global pandemic’s influence. This reality, she suggested, might be causing people to cling to the remnants of the season, mourning the inability to fully enjoy it in its usual perfection.
Her post was met with widespread approval, with numerous followers expressing their agreement and appreciation. Pesek’s reflections on the changing seasons and the unique circumstances of this past summer have clearly resonated with her audience.

Engaging Discussion on Journalism and Democracy
In a related media event, a prominent figure in Slovenian media recently appeared on the well-known Slovenian news analysis program Odmevi. This appearance led to a lively discussion on free speech and the role of journalism in a democracy, topics that have been gaining attention in Slovenia. The conversation was spurred by a report on the Trump administration, drawing comparisons to the media coverage of the US President.
The discussion was followed by an interview that was recorded in English and subtitled in Slovenian for the live broadcast. The interview sparked immediate response on social media, leading to a follow-up interview on a leading Slovenian news website.

Ljubljana: A City of Unique Character and Cultural Confluence
Located at the crossroads of Germanic, Mediterranean, and Slavic cultures, the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, is rich in unique character. The city, largely undiscovered by tourists, is a delight to explore with its cobbled Old Town, castle-topped hill, and a range of well-presented museums celebrating Slovenian history and culture. The city’s renowned architect, Jože Plečnik, has shaped its aesthetic, making Ljubljana a blend of classical and modern styles.
In addition to its architectural charm, Ljubljana is also a hub of fashion, public art, and trendy pubs. The Ljubljanica River, which bisects the city, is lined with cafés, restaurants, and a buzzing outdoor market, offering plenty of opportunities to connect with the locals. Despite its small size, the city is vibrant and youthful, thanks to its large university student population. Sitting at an outdoor café along the river and watching the vivacious Slovenes strut their stuff, or joining them for a stroll, is one of the city’s best activities.
