The Žirovnica path of cultural heritage

In the municipality of Žirovnica in the Gorenjska region there are the birthplaces of the writers France Prešeren, Matija Čop, Fran Saleški Finžgar, Janez Jalen and the pioneer of modern beekeeping Anton Janša. Above them rests Ajdna, a late antique settlement.
Through architectural interventions over several years, we have updated the presentation of the rich cultural and historical heritage of the region and its inhabitants. We bring the contents closer to visitors in a modern way by subtle design of spaces.
