Overview

The most well preserved secular building is the 300-year-old Liznjekova house in the centre of Kranjska Gora. This was a rich landowner’s home and, at one time, it was also an inn. The wooden part of the house was built in the second half of the 17th century while the small, brick room beside was constructed in the 18th century, in the Baroque style. In its time the Liznjekova house was an example of the most advanced architecture in Slovenia. Its design was the prototype for other farmhouses with a cellar that served also as a barn, it had a brick ground floor with a wooden living room, a brick-built black kitchen, a small bedroom, broad hall, small room and another small bedroom off the hall and one wooden pillar above the entrance. The house retained its original architecture until the end of the 19th century. Since then, nothing has been changed apart from the ground floor windows and new walls which have been installed in the hall and the side entrance. In addition to the black kitchen and the old room layout, nowadays the building houses an ethnographic museum collection and a permanent exhibition of the life and work of Josip Vandot, the author of the popular children’s stories about Kekec.

Excellent friendly guides made this visit so intriguing. Learning about the traditional Slovenian family lives pre-electricity, when families were self-sufficient was great. We were able to take our time. Nice little exhibition centre in the lower rooms, loved it.

Small museum, well worth and visit. An enthusiastic lady showed us round and made it an interesting visit. Her English was very limited but she pointed to most of the exhibits and tried to make herself understood.

Small museum showing how it used to be in this part of Slovenia. The custodian spoke good English and showed us around with enthusiasm without overdoing it. It was a very pleasant add-on to a lunch stop in the Kranjska Gora

This is a living museum. A house that takes you back in time to see how people carried on their daily lives. A wonderful experience as the house is well-preserved and there is a helpful guide to show you around
