Horvatov’s blacksmith house in Gornji Hrašcan

The facility – an authentic blacksmith with original antique tools – is now a fascinating attraction for tourists, and it is an opportunity to see how people once lived and earned their daily bread. If you are interested in the history of this almost perished trade, if you wish to witness how horses are shoed or nails are manufactured, you can learn a lot at the blacksmith of Ivan Horvat, who has, after retiring, become a true tourist worker.
