MUSEOEUROPE 2017: Kitchen debate - Debata o kuhinji


Museoeurope 2017 focuses on kitchen, food, and nutrition. This year's project establishes the relations between the fireplace and the technological development of the kitchen, between food in the sense of aesthetic examination and the importance of its local production, between eating disorders and public consumption of food, between food within the art, culture, and politics. The symposium will also highlight examples of good practice in museum exhibitions and pedagogical programmes.

The most beautiful vineyards in the Maribor wine region are in Svečina.

The culinary excursion among the top class wines and dishes of Svečina will take us along the heart wine road, to visit winemakers and a winegrowing museum, and to have lunch in one of the best restaurants in Slovenia.
