Saturday, 8. August | About Slovenia Times The teamA series of events will be held on Friday to mark the 120th anniversary of the setting up of the Aljaž Tower, a storm shelter and a triangulation point standing on the summit of Mount Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain.
Along with Triglav, the sheet steel storm shelter is a landmark of Slovenia and a symbol of Slovenehood. It was designed and erected by priest Jakob Aljaž (1845-1927), a trailblazer in the Julian Alps who purchases the piece of land right at the top of Triglav.
The tower and its immediate surroundings were proclaimed a site of national cultural importance in 1999, presenting a symbol of national pride along with the country's highest peak.
