Jesenice’s development is closely connected to ironworks and steel production. The spirit of the past is reflected in the Stara Sava museum area, where you can see the most important elements of the life and work of ironworkers as it was in the past. These include the Bucelleni-Ruard ironmaking manor, Kasarna, which was the home of the ironworks owners, the Church of St Mary’s Assumption and Kolpern, a former coal warehouse that has been redesigned for protocol purposes with a banquet and conference hall.
You can feel the Jesenice of the past on an interactive walk along Murova, the oldest part of Jesenice. Visit exhibitions and cultural events at Kos Mansion. Nearby, you can visit Memorial Park that boasts more than two hundred types of decorative trees and bushes.
Nature buffs are attracted to the Karavanke mountain range with magnificent views and one of the most famous peaks, Golica. These places are marked by daffodils, which blossom in abundance on the grassy slopes in May. Discover the mysterious Mežakla plateau on the other side of the Sava Dolinka. Vintgar Gorge with the magnificent Šum Waterfall is nearby.
When you visit Jesenice, you just have to see an ice hockey game. Ice hockey has a rich tradition in Jesenice and cheering at the Podmežakla Hall is an exceptional experience.
