Slovenia (Gizdava song)

The composition,which was used in the TV advertisement entitled 'GIZDAVA' (conceited woman), is a vocal-instrumental arrangement of the folk song from Prekmurje(North-east Slovenian dialect): 'Ne orji, ne sejaj' (Don't Plough, don't Sow) μην οργώνεις,μη σπέρνεις; it has been recorded in the five-beat rhythm, which is one of the most archaic preserved rhythms in the Slovenian and also European territory.The lyrics sing about a girl who is as 'cute' and 'pretty' as a flower and, at the same time, conceited.(ματαιόδοξη,περήφανη,φαντασμένη) Why is she so? Because she is still unmarried(Author Barbara Pešut.) Producer:Jasna Hribernik

The new Slovenia promo spot now broadcasting on CNN. A project worth almost 800.000 euros, tells us an abstract story about Slovenia. Many professionals among advertisers are not quite sure if this is a right way of telling the “story” about Slovenia.(

The tolar was the currency of Slovenia from 1991 until 31 december,2006 though it will be legal tender until January 14,2007. It was divided into 100 stotinov.The name tolar comes from Thaler, and is cognate with dollar.))))))))((((((((( €Watch the new slovenian euro coins!
