Tavčar Manor in Visoko
Visoko pri Poljanah 1, 4220, Škofja Loka+386 (0)31 720 email@example.com
A country manor from the 17th
century surrounded by hills and forests close to the Poljane Sora river. The
property, formerly owned by the Kalan family, became known as Tavčar Manor at
the start of the 20th century, named after the Slovenian writer and politican
Ivan Tavčar. The impressive manor and its former owners, the Kalan family, were
a source of inspiration for Tavčar's historical novel 'Visoška kronika' (The Visoko Chronicles). Alongside the former
residental building, where today there is a permanent exhibition and a
wonderful wedding hall, there is an expansive outbuilding with typical double
hayracks, known as 'toplar'. On the
edge of the forest, Tavčar had a chapel erected with the family tomb, where he
himself is also buried. Nearby there is also an imposing bronze statue of the
writer, which faces towards his birthplace – Poljane.
The unspoilt nature in the surroundings are ideal for
walking or cycling.
