Kasarna is a building, where worker's families lived.
Kasarna is a late Baroque building dating from the end of the 18th century. It is one of the oldest preserved examples of common workers’ flats in the country. Ironmaking families lived there until 1983. In 1985 it was listed as a cultural monument. Since then, the Municipality of Jesenice was renovating it under the authority of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage.
