Crucial intersection of values
The Škrabec homestead in Hrovača is the birthplace of friar Stanislav Škrabec (1844–1918), one of the most important linguists and Slovenists of the 19th century, as well as the founder of both modern Slovene orthoepy (pronunciation) and the norms of standard Slovene. For more than two centuries generations of the Škrabec family lived and worked there. Today, the homestead is an exhibition and meeting venue not only for the Škrabec family, but also for their many friends, guests, partners, and visitors.
The buildings, now considered cultural monuments, have been exceptionally well renovated and are available for both business meetings and various cultural events. In a more indirect or implicit way they represent an incentive for new challenges and grounds for the consolidation of well-tested forms of economic, business, and cultural life.
