“Life during the war”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Partizanska Bolnica Franja is a rebuilt partizan hospital. Untill 2007 it was original but due to heavy rain most of the camp was flooded, so they had to rebuilt the camp. Parking is free at the restaurant below. Lucky for us we dont have to walk through the riverbed, there is now a nice pad up to the camp with a lot of information to give you moments of rest. Beleave it or not the particans did this in the dark without a break. All buildings have somthing to tell and you will geat a good fealing about the livestile in this hospital. GREAT

“A precious reminder of humanity, nobleness, and comradeship.”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

A very moving jurney into a time of 2nd world war between 1943-1945. Showing how a common goal of few individuals can create a healing place beyond belief and against all odds!
Most evident is the human spirit presented. Inspite of the big flood which wiped the whole place out on 2007, the museum was rebuilt as it was originaly. The complex of the Franja Partisan Hospital is comprised of 14 wooden barracks and several auxiliary facilities. They were gradually built in the narrow, difficult to access Pasica gorge in Dolenji Novaki near Cerkno.
We spent 2 hours and I felt I could stay longer and learn more.

“Very interesting all round”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

Very moving with lots of information in each hut. Such a shame most of the original huts were washed away in flooding, as the new ones just looked a little to new and false and took away some of the atmosphere for me personally.
