Municipal museum Idrija preserves and exhibits the rich cultural heritage of the regions of Idrija and Cerkno as well as manages the important monument of the local immovable heritage. Within the Gewerkenegg castle there are over 1,000 square metres of exhibition showrooms to present the visitors the five hundred years long history of the town, the mercury mine and the exceptional and world-famous Idrija lace. In the town itself you can, accompanied by a guide, get to know and admire the Miner’s House and the life-style of miners’ families, the Kamšt – a mine pumping device from the 18th century with the largest wooden water wheel of its kind in Europe, as well as a rich collection of museum’s Technical Department that is situated in the building of the Francis’ Shaft and includes mining machines and devices, and locomotives. The museum is also in charge of the Slovenia Partisan Printing Shop in Vojsko, which bears witness of the people’s ingenuity and resistance during WWII. The only daily newspaper of the resistance movement in Europe was printed here and upon your visit the caretaker will print you a souvenir leaflet on the old printing press. Municipal museum Idrija was awarded The Best European Museum of Industrial and Technical Heritage in 1997. It’s open every day throughout the year.

A part of the Francis’ Shaft entrance building is dedicated to the Technical Department of the Municipal Museum Idrija. 26 mining machines and devices originating from the late 19th and the early 20th century are on display to visitors in three rooms. The exceptional collection also includes a steam piston machine and a steam boiler of the Czech factory E. Skoda Pilsen, both dating from 1882.

The mine pumping device with a wooden water wheel (diameter of 13.6 m), the largest of its kind in Europe, was constructed 1790. The pumps had a pumping capacity of 300 liters of pit water per minute and it took the wheel 13 seconds to turn. Behind the Kamšt building there are 4 renovated locomotives which used to transport ore from the Joseph’s Shaft to the smelting plant.

The printing shop operated from September 1944 till May 1945 on the steep slope under the Vojsko plateau, hidden in the forest. Accompanied by the caretaker you will visit the facilities with original equipment and exhibits. What you will see, will leave you astonished by the ingenuity of its constructors. Especially interesting are the composing room, the engine room and the electric plant. The legendary printing press is still in operation. During WWII the daily newspaper Partizanski dnevnik was printed on it.

During the decades a special type of Slovenian dwelling houses was developed in Idrija – the Miner’s House. The building situated at the address Bazoviška 4, which is nowadays reconstructed into a museum, was built in the second half of the 18th century. In 1910 there were 18 people living in the house. With its exterior it makes a mighty impression. It is surrounded by gardens and on the first floor you can see a typically furnished miner’s apartment dating from the first half of the 20th century.

OPENING HOURS: Between 15 April and 15 October daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

OPENING HOURS: Visits are possible every day, accompanied by a museum guide.

With its collections, exhibitions and other activities, the museum is enabling visitors to recognize the cultural identity and heritage of the Cerkno region. Two permanent exhibitions are presently on display in the museum. Photographs, documents and exhibits comprising the exhibition The Cerkno Region Through the Centuries represent separate segments of the administrative, economic and cultural life in the region and the every-day life-styles of the local population. Authentic items put on display grant insight into the peculiarities of the life in this region. Very important and unique are the laufars, carnival figures with masks cut from the wood of the linden tree. The costumes, masks, the old custom and the ancient beliefs that have remained alive through their annual ceremony, are presented in the exhibition PUST IS TO BLAME! – A Story about the Cerkno Laufarija. The life-style of the previous inhabitants of the region can also be traced when visiting the homestead of the writer France Bevk in the village Zakojca, where beside his works the dwelling environment is presented, too. Our most remarkable object within the museum is the Franja Partisan Hospital, a monument of the WWII times, which has been added on the tentative list of the Unesco World Heritage and is one of the European Heritage sites. Unfortunately, during the catastrophic floods on Tuesday, 18 September 2007 the Hospital was demolished. Wild flood waters have ruined the access path and most of the cabins. The reconstruction will be conducted according to the plans of an expert commission and will last over a long period of time. All visits have been cancelled. OPENING HOURS: every day, except Monday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Crypt is the only piece remained of the Hl. Barbara Church that once stood on the location of the presentday main square of the town. It was built mainly with the money donated by the miners, who wanted their patron saint to be watching over their safety in the pit and above the ground. During the allies’ bombings the church was severely damaged and then pulled down completely in 1951. The crypt was reopened to the public in 2007 after the total reconstruction of the square according to the plans of the architect Boris Podrecca. On 22 June, the name day of the Hl. Acacius, there is a church service in the crypt. In front of the crypt itself there is a gallery. LOCATION: The gallery and the crypt are located under the main square Mestni trg in Idrija.

The water barriers were a part of the system for drifting wood and timber used by the mine and the town from the forests around Idrija. They operated between the late 16th century and the year 1926. In 1770 the initially wooden klavže were replaced by built constructions on the rivers Idrijca, Belca and Zala; the constructor was a local expert Jožef Mrak. In 1813 the stone klavže on the river Kanomljica were built. Nowadays you can visit the klavže on the Idrijca, the Belca and the Kanomljica. Due to the highly aesthetic construction, extraordinary dimensions, age and their operation principles klavže rate among the most important monuments of the remains of the Idrija Mercury Mine. They are a unique cultural, historical and technological monument of international value.

The archaeological sites Grad (castle) near the village Reka and Gradišče (site of an ancient fort) near Cerkno date back to the 1st century BC. The remains give evidence that the Roman army used to besiege the strongholds of combative settlers of the region, probably the Carnian. Both sieges were part of an extensive military invasion and probably took place at the beginning of the Illyrian wars. Numerous iron nibs of catapult missiles, spears and various arrows, as well as lead missiles to be used with slings and nails used in the soles of Roman soldiers’ footwear, have been found in an area of 20 hectares. The archaeological findings of the remains of Roman siege in the region are of extremely valuable due to the fact they are one of the few to give evidence about the historic event. Some of the finds can be seen in the National Museum of Slovenia.

Near the village Zakriž there are well preserved Italian military underground strongholds, typical for the border area between Italy in and the ‘old’ Yugoslavia between the world wars. The inhabitants of Zakriž have been using one of these strongholds situated on an easily accessible location. Every year at Christmas time they use it as the venue for their Live Christmas Crib event which attracts many visitors to their village. In Zakriž there is also an old fruit drying house which still functions and every autumn there come sweet scents of dried fruit out of it. The tower Miklavžev turn (picture) in the village Labinje is actually the ruins of an old miners’ church from the Middle Ages. The oral tradition claims there is a treasure hidden under the ruins.

The baroque style parish church St. Anna in Cerkno dates from 1717 and was built by the local architect Gregor Maček. Two altar paintings and three wooden altars have the most artistic value among the interior equipment. The church of St. Jost in the village Trebenče (picture), dating from 1595 has well preserved gothic elements despite the 17th century reconstructions in baroque style. During renovation works frescoes from the 15th and 16th centuries were discovered. Church of the Birth of Virgin Mary in the village Police represents typical lategothic architecture with a baroque-style nave and a bell tower separated from the nave. Frescoes made by Jernej from Loka, and dating from 1536 are the most valuable art pieces in the church. St. John’s church is located on the brink of the plateau of Šebrelje. Between the 4th and the 1st century there was a Roman military stronghold there and later it was changed into a Christian church from a previously pagan sanctuary.

First, it was just an ordinary wooden ski with metal bindings for shoes in the middle of it. Italian soldiers used them, however the skis tended to break in half at the binding and therefore soldiers would throw them away. The inhabitants of the region discovered that the front part of broken skis could be reused. They sawed them through the broken part and in the middle of them a strap for boots was nailed. However, skiing with such skis was not easy as they were too short and the strap for holding shoes was not appropriate for managing skis. Therefore, an additional part - a bow - was fitted to skis in order to increase the manageability of skis. By redesigning the skis, skiing balance of skiers was improved.

Fossil prints known as Dinosaurs’ Footsteps were discovered in the surrounding area of Godovič. Six footprints of the size 12–14 cm have been preserved. They belong to the predecessor of dinosaurs which lived in this part of Europe 220 million years ago and were the size of a man.

This over 9-metre high pine with branches rolled like snakes is an important natural sight of Godovič. The longest branches are over 4 metres long. According to biologists the unusual shape of the pine can be contributed to a rare combination of genetic base. The pine was proclaimed natural monument in 1987.

The way from the Landscape Park Zgornja Idrijca leads to the forest Trnovski gozd past the dell Smrekova draga, which is part of the forest reserve Golaki. The spacious dell is a Karst phenomenon renowned for a temperature inversion due to which vegetation strata are distributed in the inverse direction: Beech forest on the top is followed by the pine forest whereas at the bottom of the hollow dwarf bushes, mountain grass and moss grow.

INFORMATION: TIC Idrija Vodnikova 3, SI-5280 Idrija T: +386 (0)5 374 39 16 E: J. A. Scopoli was the first miners’ doctor in Idrija and an important European natural scientist who accomplished the best of his work in Idrija. The botanical knowledge of the former region of Carniola originated mostly from Idrija. The town gained its place in botanical history due to Scopoli. The following names from the botanical world are also strongly connected with the town: Hacquet, Hladnik, Freyer, Dolliner, Dežman, Glowacki etc. As these historical facts were not appreciated enough, a botanical garden presenting the plants, discovered or first described by these botanists, was founded.
