Upon special occasions, the old mining colony in Njiva comes to life as though it were still populated and full of life. Go back in time by well over 50 years and head out into the center of the life of the Trbovlje miners – to the mining colony. Experience the social life of miners, the heartbeat of the yard, the open wooden balconies and an abundance of flavours that spread from apartments. Join men in their debates in the colony “parliament” or in a game of cards. Mingle with locals, listen to the genuine Trbovlje dialect and taste the original miners’ food, such as “funšterc” (omelette) and “grenadirmarš” (sautéd potatoes and pasta dish). The Njiva colony may come to life; we’ll prepare either a short or a long session, and a special session for children.
Do you want a treat: “škrince” (Neapolitan wafers) or candies “505 s črto”? Join us among the houses, get to know the life of the children in the colony in the mid-20th century and take part in games on the courtyard. You will not be bored.
Visit us in museum apartments of the Zasavje Museum Trbovlje.
