Memorial Park Jesenice

Here sleep the souls of the Old Jesenice. And here float the memories of all their inhabitants who rest in foreign soil. Friends sit on the benches and sometimes mothers push their strollers among the blossoming bushes.

The town where nothing old ever dies. A place for dreams of future ...

 


Memorial Park is located at the place of a cemetery which was abandoned in mid 20th century. In the second half of the 20th century it became a memorial park and arboretum with more than 200 varieties of ornamental trees and bushes. There are several cultural and historic sights in the park: cemetery wall with preserved historic epitaphs, military chapel with ossuary of soldiers, killed in the First World War in the period from 1914 to 1918, a bronze bust of Tone Čufar, a revolutionary and workers writer and a poet, a bronze bust of Dr. Aleš Stanovnik, a monument, dedicated to workers in the Ironworks of Jesenice and national heroes, burial place of 42 soldiers, killed during the Second World War in the period 1941 to 1945, a stone sign, remains of the original cemetery wall with a bronze plaque, dedicated to Alojz Mencinger, a victim of Italian war planes in Javornik in 1917 and a monument at the place where builders who died in 1904 during the construction of the Karavanke railway tunnel are buried.
