Prešeren's House

  Prešernova Ulica 7      +386 (0)4 201 39 83     more than a year ago
In a town where the great Slovene poet France Prešeren is revered unlike any other, this unassuming 17th-century house on the street that now bears his name can be considered ground zero, as it's where he lived and practised law from 1846 until his untimely death in 1849. In a restored apartment on the first floor there is a small exhibition dedicated to his life and work, including some pieces of period furniture as well as several of Prešeren's original works. Perhaps most interesting to the non-Prešeren enthusiast is the large case of books adorned with very disparate images of the poet, a testament to the fact that no portraits of him were produced during his lifetime, meaning no one is exactly sure what he looked like. On the ground floor there is well-stocked gift shop and temporary exhibition space.
