At the confluence of the Sava Dolinka River and the Ukova Torrent lies the old centre of Jesenice, which today dreams old dreams and breaths the rich tradition of ironworks.

Here, all the important elements of an iron foundry settlement can be found in a relatively small area: the mansion, the church, the residential house for workers, the furnace and other facilities, the millpond and the mill. They now form a coherent unit for museum, cultural and tourist activities.

The renovated square offers a new place for public events and the inhabitants of Jesenice and surrounding villages keep coming. This is the meeting point for acquaintances and friends, and from time to time, time simply stops ...

Stara Sava is the central part of the town of Jesenice, built at the confluence of the Sava and mountain stream Ukova. It is characterised by extremely rich ironmaking tradition, visible at almost every step. It has all the essential elements of an iron foundry settlement: a manor, a church, a residential house for workers, a blast furnace with ancillary facilities and a mill. All the facilities have been preserved on a relatively small area and nowadays represent a place, joining museum, cultural and tourist activities. The facilities are connected by a square, which has been renovated and become a new venue for performances and events, and a meeting place.
