  • Interesting visit to the huge wheel, diameter fi 13.6 meters, located in a monumental building, to the left of the river Idrijca, at the entrance to the city. The wheel was moved by the water of the river Idrijca, it took 13 seconds to take a full ride and pumped 300 liters of water per minute. It began its function in 1790, in the period of great prosperity of the mine and terminated its function in 1948. It is the largest of its kind in Europe.
