Slovenia lights Olympic torch
A goal is to create Olympic atmosphere
A month before the start of the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang an Olympic torch was lit in Ljubljana.
The torch will now travel through the country, carried by athletes and fans.
The torch will be accompanied throughout the tour by former hockey player Tomaž Razingar, who will also head the Slovenian fans in Korea during the Olympics between 9 and 25 February.
It will also stop in Tržič, Celje, Velenje, Maribor and Črna na Koroškem and will return to Ljubljana on 29 January for the official presentation of Slovenia's Olympic team.
