Zgornja Radovna, Pocar Homestead (Pocarjeva domačija)
Zgornja Radovna 25 4281 Mojstrana
Zgornja Radovna is a spread out village by the Radovna river between Krma and Krnica. Pocar Homestead was set in a thoughtfully selected location: by the path that led across the yard of the homestead. The two dominant buildings were the residential house and a large farm building with woodshed leaned against it and a smaller barn for small cattle, a smaller pigsty, a cart shed and a longitudinal hayrack. The buildings were mostly wooden; all of them were covered by shingles or boards.
A massive ground floor residential building dated 1755 on the ceiling beam is the oldest dated house in the Upper Sava part of the Triglav National Park. Documents confirm its existence since at least 1609. The house has a traditional, varied floor plan originating from the central entryway. The residential area is a 'hiša' (izba) with an earthen stove. The "black" kitchen is by the front hall. The floor plan is echoed in the attic. Until 1991 the inventory and all the tools that were piled up over several centuries were in the house. Museum experts catalogued almost 1,400 objects.
The lords of Pocar Homestead made their living as stockbreeders as is obvious from the large, outbuilding and extensions. The pasture cattle can be only found in Krma or on Pokljuka in the summer.
Pocar Homestead lies inside Triglav National Park. In the renovated homestead there is a museum, in the outbuilding there is one of the information points of the park, and it is open regularly in the summer.
