Kočevje, Šeško House

The town of Kočevje is bordered by a lake and surrounded by expansive forests. The parish Church of St. Bartholomew soars above cafes and shops on the central square, its rough-hewn stone facade hiding a colourful early 20th century interior. Outside Corpus Christi Church, a time-line introduces the milestones of the history of the region of Kočevje. The history of the settlement of the Kočevje Germans, a unique part of the region's history, is fully explored in the Regional Museum in the restored Šeškov Dom. The house is itself an important site as the first Assembly of Delegates of the Slovene Nation met here in October 1943, a meeting recalled in a series of drawings by Božidar Jakac. The collection is displayed in the restored Assembly Hall, and presents a unique record of the historic events.
