Tavčar Manor in Visoko

Tavčar Manor in Visoko

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.
