Kočevski rog - Baza 20
The outstation of Kočevski Rog was established in 1994, when the Dolenjska Museum of Novo
Mesto became the custodian of monuments from the time of the Second World War in the area
of Kočevski Rog. The outstation therefore maintains Baza 20 (Base 20) plus the Partisan
field hospitals of Jelendol and Zgornji Hrastnik along with their attached graveyards. All
three complexes of wooden huts were protected by law as cultural monuments back in 1952,
and today they stand as monuments of national importance. At all three still entirely
preserved monuments we provide the museum presentation, ongoing maintenance and restoration
work. The professionalism of the work undertaken is overseen by the Novo Mesto Regional
Unit of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia, while funds
needed for renovation are contributed by the Slovenian Ministry of Culture.
The outstation is centred at Lukov Dom below Baza 20. Here visitors to Kočevski Rog and
Baza 20 can see a short introductory film about Kočevski Rog, and guides are also available.
