The Barracks residential house

The building got its name during the times of Napoleon’s journey across Europe. It looks like it will stick for ever. Even though it later housed working families and today ...

Kasarna is a late Baroque building dating from the end of the 18th century. During Napoleon wars it served as barracks for French soldiers and later on it was changed into flats for workers' families. The building was completely renovated in 2005. Nowadays it houses Music School Jesenice and Gornjesavski muzej Jesenice. There is a reconstructed worker's flat from the 1930s and 1940s, showing the lifestyle of ironmaking families in the former Jesenice workers settlement. Workshops for all age groups are organised in Kasarna, there is also a small gallery, photo archives and archives of the Carniolan Industrial Company.
