Studor in Bohinj, Village and Hayracks
Address: Studor, Studor, 4267 Srednja vas v Bohinju
The village of Studor is made up of a dense cluster of houses. It is set close to the foot of the cumulous mountain of Studor in the Upper Bohinj Valley (Zgornja bohinjska dolina). Farmers had few fields in the narrow valley; they made their living by breeding pasture cattle and forestry. The estate of the Studors reaches to Tosc, Velo Polje and Triglav, and it comprises the estates on Komna and under Bogatin and Vogel.
In the summer the cattle were gradually moved and grazed on the mountain pastures of Blato, Blatce, Tosc, Velo Polje, Jezero, Jezerce, Laz, Viševnik, Dedno Polje, Govnjač, Ovčarija, Razor, Na Kraju, Ukanc and Vogar. In the summer time they would cut and prepare the hay for the long winter months from the steep meadows and the meadows in the valley. For larger batches of hay and for drying in the ever-rainy Bohinj, one of the largest groups of hayracks in Slovenia was set up below the village, a group of toplars (double hayracks), called stogi by the locals. The hayracks are not Baroquely luxurious like the toplars from the Dolenjska region, but they are masterfully crafted. Between the hayracks and the villages of the valley there are walking and cycling paths.
