Nice but out of the way
Aug 2020 • Family
Spend an hour in this nice open air museum. All information in English. Definitely worth visiting, but you probably need to drive a while because it is situated quite decentrally. Not all points of interest were open.

An awesome experience

Nicely cold on a hot summer day. After a short you get to the museum. It's a complex of small houses with the written explanation. Interesting and an awesome thing to see.

We had to wear masks against virus

The ticket for adult is 7 EUR. Go through the cottages slowly, read the stories on the walls and see the only original cottage left (storrage room) - how the youth can be disrespectful. Never forget the history that teaches us to be kind and love everyone everywhere.

A hidden gem in Slovenia
Oct 2019
We had not heard anything about this place until a local in Slovenia told us about it. It was such an amazing experience. The people that created that hospital were incredible. The information provided is clear and not overwhelming in complex details. Unlike most places, it's best to go in the school holidays, as during school time, there are often school trips there, we arrived just as one was leaving, thankfully otherwise it would have been crowded.

One of the most moving sites in Slovenia
Sep 2019
My husband and I recently visited the Franja Partisan Hospital during our visit to Slovenia. I had read about this hospital and being a nurse, I very much wanted to see this hospital. The hospital is not in an easy accessible area from Bled or Ljubljana as it takes a fair amount of mountainous driving to find it. However, it was so worth a visit. For me, it was one of the most moving sites that we saw in Slovenia. Others have described in detail how difficult it is to walk/climb up to the hospital now, so that it is almost unimaginable how they were able to transport the wounded through the steam, gully and steep hill without the steps and rails that are there now. Apparently, There were many other Partisan Hospitals in Slovenia during the war too...but most of those were smaller operations or houses in remote areas. In fact, we inadvertently had lunch at one of those in the Logar Valley that had been converted to a restaurant after the war. We are so very glad that we got to experience Franja and that it was rebuilt after the flood a few years ago.

A hidden gem
Sep 2019 • Solo
I took myself our for a days drive around to some of this part of Slovenia's beautiful countryside...
I had read about this place , but not in any depth
What a fascinating place.
A hidden hospital to help the wouded in WW2.
This was such a secret place that even the wouded when dropped off a bit away ,were then blindfolded and then taken to be healed and helped , this was done so as the location could never be revealed!
Completely hidden (of course now a well with path and railings on the windy step parts) ...
You do wonder as you walk ,when you will get to the base , obviously you can not comprehend the actual events from the time, but you get a sense of how dangerous and hard it must of been to originally build the base and getting supplied to and from (air drops nearby )
A simple and basic base , but amazing achievement none the less In the surrounding environment.
A mini hamlet , with quarters for the wounded, workers and a quartine room.
There is a kitchen/laundry/washing area and a communily area too.
Lice was a big issue so this was a top priority and one man's job to element this so no epidemic would break out in this get small area.
A true testimont to pure determination and the willingness to do good. ....
Some of the soldiers who got helped ,stayed on to be cobblers and suck like ....
I spent around two hours including the beautiful walk to and from ...
All information comes in English and very much worth the visit.
As a side note , when you pull up and park the car ,there is a cafe,that serves amazing coffee (amongst other choices) and toasties and pizzas ...the pizzas are full size and are very tasty (my lunch and dinner sorted)
So a worthwhile stop here if needed ....
Some good walks and a great setting makes this a good part of a day our

My fifth visit - my fifth excitment
Sep 2019
I have been there 5-6 times. It is always a moving and exciting experience.
The place takes you back to the heroism of the Partisans war against the Fascism in Ex- Yugoslavia in a very dramatic way.
