About This Spot

Kropa town is lying on the Kroparica stream, still carries the mark of its former prosperity as an ironworking town from the 18th century. The oldest smelting furnace in Slovenia which dates from the 13th century was discovered in Kropa. In addition, two iron forges are small wooden huts which the people of Kropa used in the 19th century for forging different nails and from where their ironworks were operated. The history of mining, forging and ironworkimg is presented in the Forging Museum. A well-preserved forge is part of a museum complex. This old tradition is continued today by the UKO company which is well known for its artistic wrought iron products.
