This is a Karaite restaurant with a “Drive through” There are not many Kariaites in the world, they have their own cuisine. This restaurant had the best soup I have ever had in my life. Served in a brown rye bread bowl.

    Great photos! I have been to Slovenia before and I saw some common elements in your photos. They all took such care in the ornamentation of the architecture. I could look at photos like these all day long. Thanks for sharing.
