Slomšek`s Birth House

In 1800, the blessed Anton Martin Slomšek was born in the village of Uniše pri Ponikvi. His birth house has been renovated and is open to visitors year-round. It displays the life path of the great priest, educator and national awakener from his early childhood, to his decision to become a priest and bishop and until his beatification in 1999. A special room, called the room of piety, was painted by Ivo Kisovec. The upper floor of the house contains a hall where you can see a film about Slomšek.
