Below you can find a short description of an element listed in the Slovene Register of the Intangible Cultural Heritage


House names are the names belonging to a specific house and the land or estate connected with it, as well as the inhabitants and the buildings that they own. They often remain unchanged, in spite of change of ownership or the owners' surname. They are an important element of the cultural-historical memory of the community.
