Harsh living conditions have always brought people together in the Kupa region, on the Croatian/Slovenian border, but today the stream of life is cut in two by a razor wire fence keeping refugees from entering Slovenia.
By constructing a steel fence through the beautiful Kupa region, Slovenia made Croatia a somewhat unwilling buffer for the influx of refugees trying to reach Europe from Bosnia. Because of the fence, tourism collapsed and many new dynamics were generated. The region has now become a focus for extreme right nationalists, human rights activists, politicians, police and border forces, as well as migrants and refugees trying to reach Europe.
