– The first gallery of travel photography in Slovenia!

In the AvanTuristica gallery we offer bold photo-adventures through the eyes of the professional travel photographers as well as creative amateurs. We cannot imagine tourism without a camera; And we cannot imagine Turistica without the gallery AvanTuristica.

The Association of Travel Photographers of Slovenia

The Association of Travel Photographers of Slovenia was established in December 2003 and has more than 300 members. It was established with an aspiration to raise the photos of Slovenian travellers, which are taken each year in world cities, deserts, mountains, rainforests, savannah and ocean coastlines, to a high-quality level. A high importance is given to training of photographers in form of courses, photography workshops and fieldwork. Many members actively cooperate with various home and foreign journals and newspapers. As photo reporters they report on pleasant, attractive and colourful, as well as black and white, sad and tragic moments of the modern world.
