The House and Statue of Ivan Grohar
The Path Through Sorica begins at the information board, which is
located between Grohar's House and the Gostišče Macesen restaurant. In 1867 the
painter Ivan Grohar was born in the house. Today it is home to the Grohar
memorial collection and gallery. You can also visit the collection of
ethnographic objects, which farmers and tradesmen once used. Trade in Sorica
quickly developed, predominantly among cottagers. The house names and surnames (Bognar,
Gošplar, Šoštar, Žnajdar, Pintar etc.) bear witness to the bustling artisan life.
The path then leads through Lower Sorica (Spodnja Sorica), along the slopes over 'Lajšto'. At the crossroads at the bottom of 'Lajšto' turn right, where there is a view of St. Nicholas' Church.
From there continue towards the main road and at the top pause to see the
2.8m-high statue of Ivan Grohar.
