Visit to the Anton Aškerc Poet's House: The house of the ballad and romance poet reveals a rich heritage of Anton Aškerc and characteristic architectural features of the house. Today, the Aškerc family uses sustainable methods of rearing sheep and produces sheep cheeses.
The tour includes guidance, a viewing of the homestead and the house and a tasting. Additionally, the visitors can taste homemade cheeses.
The family house of legendary Slovene poet Anton Aškerc (1856 - 1912) in the village of Senožete near Rimske Toplice is not only open for tourists, but actually run by the poet's own grandnephew, who has turned the premises into a museum.
Visitors can purchase various agricultural products made on the farm and see displays of Aškerc's work as well as some traditional furnishings such as a black kitchen, which were commonly used in Slovenia during his life. Best known for his epic poems and romantic ballads, the grounds and area surrounding the house have also been restored and are appropriately worthy of a contemplative stroll after viewing the exhibition.
