The Kajžnk House in Rateče is itself a cultural monument of local importance, as is the museum collection “Ethnological Heritage of Rateče“. This beautifully restored house and its collection is a must-see for all lovers of old folk culture.
The one-storey brick house of Kajžnk in the southern part of the village centre has a gabled roof with a hipped roof and covered external corridors (porches). The building has a characteristic floor plan: a ‘house’ with a chamber, a vestibule with a black kitchen and a granary. On the eastern façade of the building, a fresco of St Florian is preserved, and on the southern façade, a sundial. The main entrance has a semicircular stone portal and a moulded door. The ground floor plan is repeated on the first floor, but without the space above the black kitchen and granary. The 19th century appearance of the house has been partly preserved, but without the outbuildings. Inside, it is possible to see a reconstruction of the furnishings of the black kitchen and the storeroom, a permanent ethnological collection.
For those who want to be more interactive, they can try the Escapemuseum experience, which runs throughout the entire Kajžnk House.
