The Vodnik Homestead is the birthplace of the poet, priest, and publicist Valentin Vodnik (17581819), who authored the first Slovenian grammar book and was a central figure in the Slovenian cultural life of his time. The Homestead houses two permanent collections, one dedicated to the written Slovenian language and the other to Vodnik's life and work.
The Vodnik Homestead, a house of reading, writing, and storytelling, is managed by the Divja Misel Institute, which is also well-known for organizing the Library under Trees. The Homestead hosts regular book-themed events for adults and children and houses a gallery hosting thematic exhibitions. The programme of events is created in collaboration with partners in the fields of literature and music.
