The Ribnica Fair

The local handicrafts date back to the 15th century, when a series of poor harvests, constant pressure from the Ottomans, peasant revolts and the like forced the then Austrian Emperor Frederick III to issue the so-called Peddler's Patent. This special privilege allowed people from the Ribnica-Kočevje area to trade in local products without paying taxes. Thus, woodenware handcrafted by the people from the Ribnica Valley started to be sold in different parts of the empire. In local parlance woodenware products are called ‘suha roba’, i.e. ‘dry goods’.
In Ribnica, one of Slovenia's most famous fairs is dedicated to this tradition: the Ribnica Woodenware and Pottery Fair, which is considered a veritable local holiday.

Would you like to ride a city bike?

The Ricikel bicycle-sharing system is a cheap, active and environmentally friendly means of transport.

Using the Ricikel system is very easy and user-friendly. To start with, you need to register, which can be done in the Municipality of Ribnica’s main office or at the INFO Point at the Ribnica Castle.

Virtual world through 3D VR glasses

Have you ever tried to look at the world through virtual 3D glasses? Have you ever had the feeling that you have someone right next to you, but you can not touch them?

Now you can experience this through the 3D VR glasses that are available for free at Ribnica Handicraft Center. Walk through the forest with the help of the glasses, see how trees are felled and watch how wood is turned into a product.
