Jesenice, city of steel and flowers

Are you staying at the Bledec Youth Hostel in Bled or the Barovc Youth Hostel in Kranjska Gora and are you in search of an idea for a day trip? Nothing easier. The town of Jesenice is just a few minutes away using local transport. Welcome to the city of steel and flowers where natural and cultural attractions are just waiting to be discovered. 

You are cordially invited to take a stroll through the well-preserved ironworks town, which stands as a temple dedicated to human power and faith in progress. The industrial architecture and machinery are a true testament to life and work in those bygone days. 

Stara Sava is a cultural monument and a museum area that also doubles as a place where the town’s social, cultural and tourist events are organised. Why not pay us a visit and experience our town as a place of culture, fun and friendly gatherings?

We invite everyone who wants to discover the history of Jesenice to visit the Ironworks Museum in the Ruard Manor. The once opulent home of the owners of the ironworks today houses numerous interesting museum exhibits, which are a testament to the past life and work of the local inhabitants. The movable models and the reconstructed smithy are especially fascinating.

It would naturally be ill-mannered to pass up an invitation to have coffee in the reconstructed worker's apartment located in the Kasarna (old barracks) building on Stara Sava. You'll be able to see original furniture and furnishings and go back in time to the 1930s. The icing on the cake is sure to be the aromatic barley coffee served there, the kind our mums used to crumble bread into and serve nice and hot for breakfast.

The town? Great. What about nature? Even better.

Planina pod Golico is just a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of city life. The locals like to call it paradise. Mother Nature really gave it her all here and stopped time while she was about it. This quaint little village with friendly locals, well-preserved nature and sumptuous vistas invites you to discover the true meaning of relaxation. You might consider taking a carriage ride or perhaps you just want to take a walk.

You might just feel like sitting on the edge of a pasture and admiring the beautiful nature surrounding you on all sides:

Come round any time, not just in May, since daffodils are reflected in the steel, ironworks and eyes looking out at you from old paintings. 

Welcome to the city of steel and flowers!
