Fortress of town Kranj through history

Gorenjska Museum cordially invites you to the opening of the exhibition Fortress of town Kranj through History. The exhibition will be opened on Thursday 21 July 2016 at 7pm in the children’s tower Pungert, Trubarjev trg 6, Kranj.

Pungert is the name for the most southern part of the rocky ledge on which stands the city of Kranj. The name comes from the German word for orchard – Baumgarten. This part of town has at least 6,000 years of history. The latest archaeological excavations prove that Pungert was inhabited since Neolithic times. There were found prehistoric dwellings and also fragments of pottery, bone and stone tools.

This place was apparently inhabited in the centuries BC, during the Iron Age. Archaeologists have found a bronze buckle clothes many passages clay vessels and the remains of dwellings. From the time of the late Roman period, around the year 500, when here was Carnium as important military post, they discovered the remains of three wooden houses, fireplace and a few bronze coins, pieces of pottery vessels and fragments of bone combs. In this time they include the oldest remains of the walls on Pungert.

What was happening at Pungert in the Middle Ages?

It can be assumed that the Kranj townspeople have on Pungert gardens and orchards. On Pungert we find today the only entirely preserved defensive tower from the 16th century. In the 19th century, the tower served as a prison town, it also upgraded the extension of the staircase.The tower was later even housing. Before restoration the tower was used as depot for Gorenjska Museum.
