This year we are 240 years after the first registered successful advance to Triglav. At the event entitled Dom pod Triglavom, the president of the republic, Borut Pahor, said that Triglav is a symbol of Slovenia, our self-sufficiency and survival force. "Many symbols separated us and even separated us, but Triglav has always connected us," he said.
The film premiered during the event At home under Triglavthat was created during the production of RTV Slovenija, the production company Sever and Tourism Bohinj, and presented the history of approaches, milestones and the involvement of Triglav in the national cultural identity of Slovenians.
240 years since the first ascent to Triglav
On 26 August 1778, the highest Slovenian summit was first conquered by four inhabitants of Bohinj, the miners Luka Korošec and Matevž KosHunter Štefan Rožič and a doctor Lovrenc Willomitzer. That is what they made eight years for the victory of Mont Blanc, 22 years for the victory of Grossglockner and 87 years for the victory of the Matterhorn.
The Bohinjians erected a monument for the first time and marked the anniversary of the first accession to our highest peak for the municipal holiday.
Triglav was conquered earlier than the Mont Blanc
"Triglav is the most, it is our symbol," he said Pahor emphasized in the festive address. As he said: "Triglav will connect us as long as the Slovenian man is here". In his words, the Triglav mountain king has an almost mythological meaning for us.
He also said that Bohinjci had won Triglav even a few moments ago than won by Mont Blanc and Grossglockner. "Unlike many other countries, including large countries, it was not necessary for foreign expeditions to rise to our highest mountain," he said, stressing the virtue and courage of the Slovenian "to go to the top of his world." . He stressed that the Slovenes in mountaineering and in the discovery of mountain ranges made their contribution to the combined efforts of humanity.
The climb he led 240 years ago four years ago was compared with the increase we started with the development of Slovenia. "The beautiful, demanding is the ascent that we started with our own country, the ascent to the free creativity, well-being and security of our nation." The four were able to do that at that moment. I am convinced that when we can unite power, we have ", concluded Pahor.
