Built Cultural Heritage

Potter´s village

lay architecture


The Filovci potters’ village, an open-air museum, was officially established in 2005. Its history goes back much further, to the potters who made their pots here in the Pannonian region, who are not known by name, and those who have been recorded in the archives since the 18th century and to those who still live in the in the memory of the older people of Filovci. Original thatched houses (cimprane hiše) preserve the heritage of built environment in the village. Thus, in Filovci, there are many forms of heritage: pottery, architectural monuments, dwelling culture and cuisine.
