Louis Adamič Memorial Room

Louis Adamic Memorial Room - 03.JPG

The Louis Adamič Memorial Room is housed in Praproče, the birthplace of Louis Adamič (1898–1951), a Slovene writer who spent most of his life in the USA after emigrating there in 1913 at the age of 14. Known in the United States as Adamic (a-dam'ik), his literature dealt with the social and political issues of both countries (for example, Dynamite, The Native's Return, The Eagle and the Roots).

The collections of Adamič's legacy are dispersed throughout various archives in Slovenia and the USA. The most important is the one at Princeton University (books from his own library, manuscripts and correspondence, clippings). In Slovenia, the memorial room is placed in the tower of the country mansion in Praproče, where Adamič spent his childhood.

Rajhenburg Castle

The Rajhenburg Castle dates back in the 9th century but the current construction derives from the 16th century. The castle that is called also Brestanica Castle is owned by the Municipality of Krško and was recently completely renovated with the support from the European Union's Cohesion Fund. Despite its rather sinister misuse during and after World War II it now features several museum collections, contemporary art exhibitions, a wedding hall, a museum shop, a restaurant and a café. It is managed by the Krško Culture House that runs a variety of cultural programmes.

As the Rajhenburg Castle was also a home to the only Trappist Monastery in the Slovenia, their rich legacy became an inspiration for the current exhibitions. The permanent exhibition on the Rajhenburg Trappists was prepared by the Brestanica Unit of the National Museum of Contemporary History already in the 1990s and was re-staged in 2013.
