Pleterje Charterhouse - 02.JPG

Pleterje Charterhouse Monastery is the only still-inhabited Carthusian monastery in Slovenia. Known officially in Latin as Thronus Sanctissimae Trinitatis a community of white monks of the strictest contemplative order in the Roman Catholic church are living secluded, behind walls in silence, work and prayer. The monastery has two parts, a Clausura where only monks, apprentices and lay monastery help are allowed, and a public part with the Gothic church of St. Trinity, built in 1407 in simple style, but with a so called "long choir", big Gothic windows, a fish bladder, and quatrefoil ornament and Parlerian elements in the interior as console masks and flower keystones. In the middle of the nave stands a Rood screen that used to divide lay monks from choir monks and in the walls clay vessels have been built to give the space a special resonance for choirs. From the Gothic-style buildings only the church, part of the cloister and sacristy have remained, the monastery's other buildings were erected in the beginning of the 20th century.

Škratelj Homestead

The Škratelj Homestead is an ethnological monument that represents not only architectural and regional cultural heritage but is also is the birthplace of the first Slovene film star Ida Kravanja (stage name Ita Rina) who in the late 1920s starred in the film Erotikon (1929) by Czech director Gustav Machaty, which enjoyed major box-office success both in Europe and in the USA.

The permanent exhibition on the actress, conceived by the Slovenian Cinematheque Museum Department and installed on the first floor of the homestead in 1998, has been expanded into the Museum of Slovenian Film Actors. The project has been supported by the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Divača, while the renovation works on the Škratelj's homestead were supported by the donation of Norway through the Norwegian Financial Mechanism.
