Škrateljnova domačija homestead

The original centre of Divača developed along the old road, and from afar the visitor’s gaze is drawn to the Baroque church of St. Anthony and its ornate pilastered entrance.


Not far from here is the Škrateljnova domačija, which dates back to the 17th century and is the oldest preserved Karst homestead. It is an extraordinary monument to farm construction. At one time it housed an inn with lodging and large farm buildings, where wagoners and their weary draught animals would stop to rest.


Škrateljnovo homestead consistes of a lounge area, two outbuildings, yard with a stone pot-bellied wells, sinkholes and dry stone walls that surrounded the entire homestead.

Today, in the house you can see two permanent exhibitions. In the former residential section, is a permanent exhibition dedicated to the first Slovenian film star Ita Rina, who was born in 1907 in Divača and shined on the European and World film sky in the twenties and thirties of the last century. The permanent exhibition  dedicated to Slovenian film actors, can be seen in the former stables. For a variety of workshops, lectures and film screenings serves a former temple with a barn transformed into a multimedia hall. During the summer months, there is also an outside cinema which is located in the courtyard Škrateljnova house.
