Try to set the night on fire

Slovenian fire stations are not the utilitarian buildings you find in England. The photograph shows one example we spotted in a village where we stopped to see some Roman Necropli. The stations are generally colourful, traditional building and have a wall painting or a statue to Saint Florian, the patron saint of firecrews in this country.

Brightly coloured buildings are usual in Slovenian towns and villages, making everywhere looks cheerful. Tangerine orange seems particularly popular on new houses this year.
