Traditionally commencing with “Vestirnga”, the annual induction of military conscripts organized by the Administration of Defense, where conscripts arrive at the event on traditional recruitment vehicles, the dynamic activities continue on Saturday with an enriched museum program, numerous guided tours, and an open day at the Stanislav Požar Military Barracks. The climax occurs on Sunday with illustrative rides of armored vehicles from the operational part of the collection and a dynamic presentation by the Slovenian Armed Forces and the Slovenian Police.
