On the banks of the rushing Kroparica Stream, in the shade of the forested Jelovica Plateau, one of the major iron-forging centres from our past lies hidden away. Here, reminders of the erstwhile iron-forging trade will accompany you at every step: technical monuments, examples of cultural heritage, wrought ironworks, the preserved iron forgers' customs, cuisine, and excellent singing.

The village of Kropa, the cradle of Slovene iron-forging, lies hugged in a narrow valley beneath the Jelovica Plateau. With its authentic and unique iron mill owners’ architecture, roaring waters, preserved technical heritage, and stories of the hard-off life of iron forgers, it is certainly well worth a visit.

Kropa's heritage has been uniquely preserved. The present-day appearance of the protected market town's centre has been characterised by its iron-forging tradition. Kropa is home to two churches — the Church of St Leonard and the Church of the Mother of God —, the Iron Forging Museum, and, a little further up, the Vice Spike Forge.
