Museum dedicated to slovene maritime and naval history.
Marine architectures and visual pictures of history came to me as pure delicate work of art, constructing an imaginary bridge between the past and present moment. At the moment of visit, I was briefly able to palpably feel and immerse into the life of seaman - vividly triggering me to rethink about the quote “Call me Ishmael”. When I visited, the price for adult was 4 euros :)
