The rich traditions of the past are portrayed by museum collections, artwork in the galleries, sacral monuments and the ancestral folk tradition.
As colourful as the nature, such is also the legacy of this area. The lives of knapi (miners), flosarji (raftsmen) and ironworkers are retold by various collections and outdoor artwork. Just like the miners once took the train to work, you can now take a ride into the Peca underworld with an authentic mine rail and explore the mysteries of the underworld. The Drava River holds the stories of the raftsmen or flosarji, their tradition and timber rafting on the river. The hard work of ironworkers and processing steel is portrayed by artwork entitled Forma Viva, which is unique on a world scale. The numerous local trades enrich the development of the cities. The oldest among them is Slovenj Gradec, which received the city rights more than 750 years ago. The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška (KGLU) and the Koroška Regional Museum uncover more of the secrets and accomplishments of this area. The city legacy is complemented by ongoing tradition in the countryside, where farm life and living in harmony with nature is portrayed in an authentic way.
