Visiting Partisan Printing Shop is a good idea for an active day in nature. You can borrow bikes and explore the nature while cycling to this nice landmark from WWII, which is one of the more unique memorials from that time.

 


This printing shop was very important during the World War II when communication among resistant movement in Slovenia (the Partisans) was limited and oversaw by German soldiers. So the Partisans established this printing shop in the middle of the woods, on a steep hill, hidden from the curious eyes of other people.

 


The location was hidden good, enough to enable the publication of the only daily resistance movement newspaper “Partizanski dnevnik” in Europe.

 


Partisan Printing Shop operated from September 1944 to May 1945. It is now organised into a museum with two original printing machines that can be used by visitors to print out their own souvenirs.

How to get there

Slovenia Partisan Printing Shop is located in Vojsko, small village around 20 km from Idrija. The best way to reach it is by bike, as it offers a great active daily trip, through nice forest roads which get very stiff at the last kilometre before the Partisan Printing Shop.
