The Museum presents the First World War on the Isonzo Front, focusing on the Twelfth Isonzo Battle, known as the Battle of Kobarid. The battle turned into one of the most violent encounters in the history of this mountainous region and, besides the Eleventh Isonzo Battle, it was the most ferocious armed engagement Slovenia had ever experienced. It was also the most successful breakthrough operation in the First World War and one of the first cases of a battle incorporating Blitzkriegstrategic elements.
The Museum also presents the history of the Kobarid region from its early beginnings until today.

Technical Museum of Slovenia ( Bistra near Vrhnika )
The largest exhibition area of the Technical Museum of Slovenia is entitled “Road Vehicles”. In a space of 2,300 m2 there are displayed 55 automobiles, 50 motorcycles and 40 bicycles. For the time being there are three permanent exhibitions, and nearly 80% of the remaining area is dedicated to ‘open storage’ of the major part of vehicle collection. In addition to being interesting with regard to the research and development of motor vehicle and bicycle transport in the territory of today’s Slovenia, these collections also give an insight into the evolution of cars and the related technologies, as well as the development and production of motor vehicles in Slovenia. Special place in our museum is given to the historical collection of limousines used by President Tito, premier of Yugoslavia (1892-1980), and collection of pre-WWII cars that are a long-term loan from the Deutsches Tehnikmuseum in Berlin, Germany.
The main museum collections of the TMS are located in the former Carthusian monastery in Bistra near Vrhnika. In addition to visiting the collections and participating in great many activities organised for children and adults alike, the visitors may enjoy a pleasant rest in a serene natural environment far away from the rapid pulse of urban life.

Valvasor’s collections and descriptions, as well as his maps, vindicate his position as one of the most eminent and accomplished scientists and polymaths of his age. The exhibition “Valvasor’s study of nature” presents Valvasor as a natural scientist.

Slovene museum of Christianity – Stična
Stična stands in a remote valley near the numerous traffic routes of Dolenjska near Ivančna Gorica and Šentvid. The Cistercian monastery was built in the first half of the 12th century in a valley that has had a continuous settlement since pre-historic times. After 1135 the construction was directed by the builder Michael from France, who later supposedly married a local woman and lived in the nearby Zgornja Draga. He built an extensive stone three-nave Romanesque basilica with a transversal nave and five apses, as well as a cloister with a capital hall next to it and additional monastery buildings. The church was the largest sanctuary on our territory. With the development of the estate other facilities grew up as well: residence buildings, granaries, mills and barns. The monastery was protected with walls and numerous cylindrical towers, though this did not stop the Turkish plundering. The vaulted cloister, which was later painted (partly the school of Janez of Ljubljana, around 1470), had a capital hall that opened with two double windows.

Franja Partisan Hospital
The Second World War was one of the most difficult trials for mankind. Like other freedom-loving nations, the Slovenes organised themselves to struggle against fascism and nazism. Clandestine hospitals were a particularity of the Slovenian resistance movement. They were built in barely accessible forests, deep gorges and underground caves. They saved lives in circumstances that are hardly imaginable today.

Gewerkenegg Castle – The Idrija Municipal Museum
Dominating over the old town, Idrija’s castle has preserved its historical name, Gewerkenegg, which in German means mine castle. It was built in the period from 1522-1533 for the needs of the mercury mine. Initially used to store wheat and mercury, the castle was later occupied by the mine administration for more than 400 years. Over the centuries, it has also housed various offices, schools and residents. In the mid 18th century, the Renaissance castle complex with its three round corner towers and single front tower was renovated in baroque style and painted with decorative frescoes. Its present-day appearance dates back to the first half of the 1990’s. Today, the castle is used for museum activities, the music school and, to a smaller extent, restaurants and shops.
