Monument dedicated to Alma Karlin (Celje, Slovenia)

    Alma Ida Willibalde Maximiliana Karlin (b. Celje, Slovenia, 1889 – d. 1950, Pečovnik, Slovenia) was a Slovenian traveler, writer, poet, collector, polyglot and theosophist. She was one of the first European women who alone circled the globe. She was born in the Styrian town of Celje (now part of Slovenia), and after finishing highschool in Austria, she traveled to London, where she studied over ten languages. After traveling to Sweden and Norway during the 2nd World War, in 1919, she opened a language school in Slovenia but soon took off again, this time on a nine-year-long journey around the world.
