Since 1947 the Prešeren Awards have been given to Slovenia’s leading artists on the national day of culture, which is on 8th February in commemoration of the great poet’s death, and are considered the highest national honour in the field of the arts. Some 140 works by past winners of the so-called Grand Prešeren Award (given to two artists) and the Prešeren Fund Award, also known as the Small Prešeren Award, (given to up to six artists) are on display here at the municipal gallery located in the labyrinthine 16th-century Pavšlar House. The premises themselves are almost as interesting as the award-winning artwork, with original frescoes, exposed wooden Renaissance ceilings, clay brick floors and numerous other architectural embellishments.
