In the Kajžnk House, as part of the permanent collection Ethnological Heritage of Rateče, festive and everyday Rateče costumes are presented in the premises of the house. This costume is one of the few in Slovenia that residents still keep and occasionally wear. The people of Rateče are (still) proud of their heritage! So if you want to see the Rateče costume live, you must attend the Village Day event in Rateče. Another option is to watch a recent film about costumes in Kajžnk’s house.
Original footwear for the winter in Rateče! At the Village Day in Rateče, you can see the production of Rateče ethnological footwear “joks” – “žoki”! The locals then show the processes of wool processing and the method of making embroidery and original low shoes – balls, in which the inner part is woven from domestic wool, lined with fabric and lined with leather. A wonderful memory of the Upper Sava Valley!
