Kavčnik Homestead in Zavodnje near Šoštanj is a splendid example of Slovene vernacular architecture, with a 400-year-old smokehouse (dimnica or kuhna). It was in use in the Alpine region and is the southernmost surviving example. A unique example of rural architecture the homestead was opened as an open air museum in 1992 and was nominated for the Museum of the Year Award in 1993. As the homestead was inhabited until 1983, the tools, furniture, and living quarters found within still give the impression that somebody is living there.
