In Trbovlje, the heritage of two centuries of mining can be traced at every step, and today the city is following the path of new media art and innovative technologies. We start the tour at the Trbovlje Thermal Power Plant, where we look at the sky to see the highest industrial chimney in Europe – 360 meters high. We take you to the mining colonies, which were established a hundred years ago as residential houses for miners and have remained mostly inhabited to this day. We travel from Limberk, where the entire settlement sank, to Lakonca, where you see the consequences of mining for the environment, through the legendary mining colonies in Žabjek, past abandoned mining machines in Ribnik, to the inn of Slovenian mother Ana Dimnik and the premises were the world-famous Laibach group started to be.
We also present Delavski dom Trbovlje, with a staircase, Batič statues and the largest mosaic in Slovenia. We will present the transformation of the city from industrial to new media in the Park of Culture with the only outdoor monolith in Slovenia, and you will be able to continue the experience in the virtual museum of mining 4th dritl. We show you the highest achievements at the intersection between art, science and new technologies in the DDT-RUK Research Laboratory, which creates projects in the field of cybernetics, virtualization, BCI systems and robotics.
Depending on your wishes, we can include other experiences in the program and make a unique & personalized experience of our city.
