Welcome to Vrtoglavica!

Vrtoglavica is 603 metres deep karst shaft in Slovenia, which is named after the Slovene term for vertigo. Vrtoglavica is composed of two words – vrteti = to spin and glavica = head. Well, they take vertigo quite literally.

I don’t like looking from heights, neither looking to depths. I have been suffering from vertigo my whole life, so I absolutely agree with how Slovenes call it.

This beret’s crown, shaped with decreases to kind of a spiral, is exactly how I feel while going through vertigo!
