Abstract

Ancient and the most ancient heritage sites are revered landscapes or their components (rock sculptures, geoglyphs, sacred hills, trees, aquatic complexes and other objects of natural, anthropogenic and mixed origin), which are usually associated with folk traditions and legends. Authors of the article relate inclusion of such objects in the cultural landscape to prehistoric times (the Stone Age and earlier), and as the main primary function allocate astronomical orientation in space-time. The article shows examples of possible instrumental use of well-known and respected sites on the example of the earth's surface arched sculptures located in different regions of the world. As a result of studies carried out on the basis of maps, satellite images, photos, published descriptions, the authors conclude that most of the objects served as elements of information support systems, were included into the ancient local and regional navigation network and represent key parts of the organization of geo-cultural space, that was the objective basis of their sacralization.

Because young irregular alpine relief is dominant in Slovenia, the first physical-geographical regionalization, which were based on the relief and the physical and geographical factors linked with it, were taken for the general geographical ones. In the second half of the century, several physical-geographical regionalizations of Slovenia that differed in detail were published, provoking discussion among geographers regarding their suitability and logicality. This article provides an analysis of the published regionalizations relative to the defining of the conception, its realization, the number of the regional elements considered, and their documentation. Because the regionalizations do not originate from the same foundations and are therefore different, as a whole they increase the offer for users who have various requirements.
