in the beginning of the 14th century. Many ironworks used to stand by the Mošenik stream and they were separated according to what they produced – some made scythes and sickles, while others made axes, garden forks, hoes, spades etc.).
Germovka was one of the oldest producers of scythes in Tržič. In 1811 it burned down in a great fire and was later the only old ironworks to be renovated. It was active until 1945. In the blacksmith’s workshop you can see the preserved old forge, the bellows, the mechanised heavy hammer and other equipment.
Since the Germovka building was renovated in 2014, it is possible to see inside the artistic installation by Matej Andraž Vogrinčič entitled “Paradiž”.
