The museum presents Lake Cerknica with a unique model that acquaints us, on smaller scale, with the spatial position of the lake and its wider karst surroundings between Mt. Slivnica and the highly forested Javorniki Mts. Through a professional interpretation we shall learn, in detail, about the water system functioning, including the origin and intermittence of this karst phenomenon. Through demonstration of the water system, we shall listen to the sound recordings of life along the lake, and thus experience the entire nature, water, birds, and other animals...

Cultural heritage:

Cerknica polje Ethnological park. With its unique origin and intermittence, the Cerknica polje and its lake marked the people who lived here in a very special way. Through centuries, the inhabitants developed a very particular life: by fishing, making their own skates, cutting the ice, boating on the lake, cutting grass, transporting wood across the lake... Through history, different objects and tools were created, specific for the life along the lake and techniques of their making and use. In the Cerknica polje Ethnological Park, we wish to conserve the rich cultural heritage of the area marked by Lake Cerknica. Project Leader 2010
