On a slope, not far from the town centre, surrounded by vegetable gardens there is one of the last miners’ houses that for centuries have shaped the image and reflected the working importance of Idrija. You must be wondering what the life of miners’ families looked like one hundred years ago? Idrija Municipal Museum invites you to take guided tours of the Idrija Miner’s House during the festival days. You might be especially curious to try to play Volkalca game, taste Zeljševka cake and chat with lace-makers. Stories from the miners’ past will revive in the games, songs and dance of the 5th year pupils of Idrija Primary School under the mentorship of Lidija Kacin with accordion accompaniment by Žan Podobnik, a student of Idrija Music School.
