This double hay rack
of the type known as a "toplar" stands in Belsko
by the road linking Postojna to Predjama. It is just over six kilometres from Postojna.
The hay rack is a valuable example of vernacular architecture in Slovenia. It houses a collection of more than 200 objects and artefacts used by people in this area in activities ranging from agriculture, animal husbandry, fruit growing, forestry, hunting and gathering to transport, shoemaking, blacksmithing, wheelwrighting, household management and other activities.
Every August a traditional themed event called "Forester–Farmer, Past and Present" (Gozdar-kmet nekoč in danes) takes place by the hay rack.
Visits to the hay rack by arrangement only.
