JAVORJE

Javorje is a village with 171 inhabitants, which live dispersal in homesteads around the Replica Rolex Super Ocean ridges from Črna till Plešivec (Uršlja gora, 1699 m), Šentvid and Sleme. It is bordered with the brook Javorski potok in the south and in the north with the hamlet Jazbina. There are many architectural important buildings which are a part of old homesteads (houses, granary buildings).  There is a baroque church St. Magdalena with an onion-shaped dome on the pass at the top of the village. It was first mentioned in 14th century. A bit western there is a church St. Jost, which is a unique example of a folk architecture in 17th century. The village has many old and rare trees such as a giant spruce on the farm Potočnik, a giant maple tree on Pikovo, elm trees on the farm Konič and numerous lindens on farm courtyards. Twelve homesteads run eco-farming. Tourists can find pleasant and tasty refreshment in the Podkržnik inn.
