Here is the home of tradition: The Skomarje House

The famous Homestead Skomarje House was built in 1803, following the classic chimney tradition of construction of the time. At the same time the famous Pohorje poet, Jurij Vodovnik, also wandered around here. It represents the transitional type between the late medieval smoke house and a more advanced house with an open-fire black kitchen.

In the Skomarje House you will find the following medieval rooms:

  • vhodno lapo (lobby),
  • kujhno (kitchen),
  • h∂jšo (living room, elsewhere known as »house«),
  • št∂jblc (room – bedroom) and
  • prešnco (press) with a wooden fruit press.
