Interactive map with sights

Vrhnika is a lovely small city near Slovenian main city, Ljubljana. In this part, where goes the Old road, you can have something sweet like ice cream or cake in the confectionery Berzo. Beside the confectionery is the church of the Saint Lenart. Here also goes the path called On the way of Cankar's past. At the hundredth annivarsary of the Cankar's birth the local people had marked the houses in which lived Cankar's family after fire burnt down their house with special memorial plates. You can see the memorial plates in the Old road 11 and Old road 13. Cankar's family had probably moved in the house at the Old road 11 in the year 1886. In the ground floor of the house the family stayed till the father's leaving to Sid in the year 1890. They had only one room. In the house at the Old road 13 had long time lived the writer's grandmother Marija Pivkova. Cankar's family had moved in the year 1893 in this house after the father's departure to Croatia and they stayed here one more year. In antique times the Old road represented the main traffic artery, which leaded from Rome to Emona. It kept its transit role till the middle of the 19th century, when was replaced with the railway and imperial's road. This also reflected in the level of services and trade activity. Blacksmiths, cartwrights, ropemakers and other tradesmen, which were bounded to the traffic, were replaced with barbers, dressmakers, watchmakers and others. The densitiy of the population and houses in this part was very large. Some houses were sticked together very much. Usually lived inside beside the elementary family also uncles, aunts, subtenants and others. At the end of the 19th century lived in the Jernejec house about eight subtenant families. Larger parts of the houses were mostly hard work of the local carpenter's, building's and bricklayer's skilled workers.
