Did you know?
At 924 meters above sea level, Skomarje is one of the highest-situated Slovenian villages with the prevailing rural population. Life there is in many ways close to that of 100 years ago.
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.
A Tip: the Skomarje Excursion can be used for hiking and cycling, or for visit of a tourist farm. The Arbajter Tourist Farm is located in Skomarje, which makes an impression with its deer farm and delicious delicacies of the Taste of Rogla.
