Preseren's Grove

Interactive map with sights

Preseren grove was in 1952 reorganized by plans of architect Marjan Sorli from previously abandoned city Kranj cemetery. Grove is in the property of community Kranj. Renovation was going under the expertise of Institute for protection cultural heritage. The area is designed as grove because of historical part and piety. It is a place for rest, meditation and cultural inspiration. Paving stone footpaths are from all sides concluded in the central part with transitional booth on eight columns with three time divided semicircular roof. At the end of 18. century they left off the cemetery at church Saint Kancijan and started to bury in the small place of today's Preseren grove. The cemetery expanded at the end of 19. century, but in 1939 was gave up because of space distress. On this place they preserved only some of the most important historical tombstone and cultural monuments, which are the tombstone of France Prešeren, Simon Jenko, Janez Puhart, the famous inventor of photography on glass, mausoleum Majdic, bust statue France Prešeren and grave of Presern's daughter Ernestina Jelovšek.
