WHERE HISTORY COMES TO LIFE
Šenk’s homestead is the pearl of the Alpine architecture and typical nucleated rural settlement of the area. Here we find eight buildings; all roofed with wooden roofing in a layout designed more than 500 years ago. It was built after the big lake which was covering Jezersko valley disappeared in the 14th century. The engraved year 1517 above the door of the main building tells us of its age. Original buildings and architectural style have been preserved and the main house of the homestead is today protected under the national cultural heritage scheme.
The Homestead strives to maintain the old traditional dishes that were prepared already by generations before them and are inextricably linked with the life on the farm. On the menu, you will find dishes, such as »Masunjek« on homemade bread, buckwheat »žganci« with »ajmoht« or goulash with bread dumplings. The offer is topped with »buhtlji« with homemade plum jam or »šmorn« with prune jam.
