A Blacksmith's forge Pri Kovaču
In the countryside craft making of metals, particularly iron and steel, has been known since the tenth century, and in the cities since the twelfth century.
In the past, every farm on Pohorje had its own forge. They needed it for agricultural and forestry tool repairs. Today forges are almost gone. Forge “Pri Kovaču” has a 200 years old blacksmith tradition. Tradition shows the hard work of the local people and combines the past with the present.
They have preserved machinery and tools that were used by the ancestors at the farm (spring hammer, hand drill, a large furnace). The master blacksmith presents the manufacture from iron to a product. Visitors can make their own souvenirs. Listen to traditional stories of the past, while having a smithy snack and a drink.
