Bevk homestead, also called "Pri Volarju", is located in the lower part of the village Zakojca. On the hundredth anniversary of the writer's birth it hosted an ethnological and literary historical exhibition. The ethnological part presents the typical cottage living environment at the beginning of the 20th century in the Cerkno region, while the second part through books, photographs and other items throws light upon the writer's life.
France Bevk, a writer, journalist and politician, born on 17 September 1890 as the oldest child of a poor cottage family, has left an indelible stamp on the history of the people in the Primorska region. Especially during the most difficult times of his life, his works built in his fellow country people national awareness and faith in better future. His tales and novels often describe places and people under Kojca with whom he spent his childhood and youth.
