Jesenice Grammar School

Still painted in the colour of its youth, it remembers the bygone times in the stillness of the night. The primary school, the lower and higher grammar schools, the first world war, the first Yugoslavia, the second world war, the second Yugoslavia. Now it peacefully breaths Slovene air. It only gets sad when it tries in vain to count all the students who sang here: gaudeamus igitur …

It was built in 1914 by Rudolf Petz and it is one of rare preserved secession buildings in Jesenice. Rhombic stucco details on the facade are supplemented by shallow relief with images of boys, symbolising science. It was built for the purpose of compulsory public school, and since 1958 it had been housing the so-called lower and higher gimnazija. The building was renovated in 1994 and painted in the original green colour. Today its houses gimnazija, including sports and European classes.
