Generation to generation

Diligent hands passing crafts down from one generation to the other

Diligent craftsmen pass their skills down from one generation to another, preserving the heritage of their (great)grandparents.

Their deft hands and restless spirits create genuine, well recognisable objects which, in all fairness, do not need to be brought back to life in Prekmurje as they are embedded in the local environment at all times.

Why not attend an unforgettable pottery workshop and put your skills to the test
or participate in creating heart-shaped gingerbread, traditional grass cutting, corn husking or flax retting.

Ethnological and crafts events take place every May through October.

Open-air museums

Pottery village, Filovci

Filovci features two live cultural monuments, i.e. the indigenous Pannonian thatch-roofed houses including the Potter's House (Slovenian: Lončarjeva hiša), and the House of Culinary Delights (Slovenian: Hiša kulinarike). The Filovci village used to have at least one pottery maker at almost every house. Today, the pottery village of Filovci is the only place that still preserves the tradition, craftsmanship and the art of pottery – all this is on display for tourists. Learn about the nearly forgotten craft and see how the pottery kiln works.
