Everyday life in the days of yore
The log cabin that can be seen from the road is home to the museum dubbed ‘The life grandma and grandpa knew’. Everyday life a hundred years ago at the foothills of Olimska gora will be presented by the members of the Korenčkovi (‘Carrot’) family. The family consisted of 15 members and everyone worked really hard. Children would iron, grind barley for coffee or maize for polenta. The grandma worked the spindle while the grandpa played the accordion. The youngest one slept in the cradle, while the girl who attended her first year of school practiced writing on a small blackboard. The other family members are found outside the cabin, the men preparing the haystack, the firewood for the winter, making schnapps and cut grass, while the women washed the nappies in the creek, carried the water and gathered brushwood.
