VIR CITY AND CVINGER
Grofija lies on the floor of an ancient iron-walled and fortified fort, now called the Cvinger. In the second half of the 8th century. BC n. no. the Iron Age society was already well organized, having developed its characteristic culture (the Haltstatt culture). At that time, a new settlement was built on Vrh, built on a hill so that they could control what was happening in the surrounding area. It was fortified with walls and earthbaths. The settlement lived for over 700 years until the arrival of the Romans. Later, the people removed the stones from the walls and used them as building material. It is likely that the Stika monastery and the buildings of the Kavč Homestead (Counties) were also built from it. The wall around the village is more than 2000 m long. It was built for about 1500 present-day railway wagons of stone. Yet, the inhabitants of the settlement did not leave us any records or other indications of their ethnicity. Settlement and mound surveys show that the inhabitants were next not only a large but well organized society. The settlement began to be built when the people of the early Iron Age had already reached the height of their social development. That is why the town of Vir is considered to be at the very top of the Haltstatt culture.
It's not hard to guess that the Source has you the source. Not any, but a real karst spring. The locals call it Studenec. Our well is a place of great landmark - the classic site of a human fish, with a genome different from the rest. On June 17, 1824, the local Marija Kek did laundry at Studenec. She caught a human fish and brought it home in a bottle, later it was noticed that the puppies appeared in the bottle, who later sadly died. The first record of the human fish appeared on the Kučec homestead in Vrh 6.
The ethnological collection, called "That's how Grandma and Grandpa lived," was created thanks to Father John, who enthusiastically collected antiques and exhibited around the house. Over time, many items were accumulated and for this purpose we renovated the barn, which was built in 1855, into a small ethnological museum. In it, guests have a good idea of how life was in the home, in the fields, in working with horses,
in farm work and in the vineyard.
