If by stroke of luck or happenstance, you dear Rhodia buffs, happen to wander by Savinja River, where it meets Sava; or find yourself in the midst of the throng of tourists and locals near Stolnica, you are not far from home. You’re either in Celje, or the capital Ljubljana. Welcome to Slovenia, land of the Julian Alps and Union beer, as well as Donald Trump’s latest dame, Melania Knauss. US Senators Tom Harkin of Iowa and George Voinovich of Ohio also trace their maternal roots from this Slavic state. It’s also home to Leonardo, a chain of specialty shops, featuring anything and everything Rhodia. Cool, huh? At the break of Spring, we’ve learned that they’re even doing a new window display in all of their eleven branches. That’s something to watch out for! So feel at home, whether you end up in Koper, frolicking on the coasts of the Adriatic, or in Ptuj admiring the Renaissance and Baroque castles.
