Museum of Hostages reviews
Begunje manor house (now hospital) has small museum at the back. Warning and message from this small museum is just one - keep peace, don't kill hostages and be against any war. Grey small cells and..... more »
Politicians forgot one page of history. Dark cells in Begunje, huge bell near the entrance and many memorial stones to killed hostages are still very impressive, movable for ordinary people. No more..... more »
An interesting place which forms a small wing of what is now mental hospital but in former times was a convent and female prison. The Germans used it as a prison, transit station and interrogation facility. Hostages were also held and executed there. It has a brutal record but is nevertheless part of Slovenia's history. The surrounding fields are full of blood.
Maybe a signpost or two from parking place to the museum would be a good idea since you are in an area of a psychiatric hospital and are never sure if you are even supposed to be there. :)
