The Liznjek House, situated in the old centre of Kranjska Gora, houses an ethnological museum collection which was established after the renovation works in 1983. The building has grown for several centuries and retained a character of the 18th and early-19th century vernacular architecture, now declared a local cultural monument.


Vernacular architecture house style

For its time, the Liznjek House was one of the most advanced examples of vernacular architecture in the area – a prototype that remains virtually unchanged to this day. It was the richest homestead in Kranjska Gora, then called Borovška vas, with 84 hectares of land. Together with a large barn, dated in the year 1796, and the courtyard the Liznjek House forms a picturesque homestead.

The wooden first floor is a masterpiece of local carpenters with hewed beams bound with profiled prongs [vezava na roglje], a wooden corridor with a whittled fence, and a wooden ceiling inside with a rosette, dating in 1781. Notable façade elements are: a fresco dating from the 17th century, and a Baroque portal of green tuff, a product of the long stone cutting tradition in the Gorenjska region.

Collections

The house is an ethnological monument with a basement (stable and cellar), a masonry ground floor, wooden main living quarters, a stone-walled black kitchen, a closet, a wide hall, vestibuled chambers (the two black rooms served as a granary and living room) and a wooden closet [štiblc] above the entrance. The collection presents the living conditions of a wealthy peasant family of the mid-1800s, including the original furnishings, as well as items drawn from the collections of the Upper Sava Valley Museum, Jesenice.

The basement now contains an exhibition representing the life and work of writer and poet Josip Vandot (1884–1944), the creator of the character Kekec, and an exhibition gallery for temporary art and museum displays, for example, in 2009 a temporary exhibition on the History of the Valley and its Heritage.
