Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Idrija is a small town and municipality in the Gori ka region of Slovenia. It is known for its mercury mine and lace. Near Idrija there was an archeological find of an approximately 43,100 year-old juvenile cave bear femur at Divje Babe, which may be a prehistoric flute. Under Austrian rule it was known as Idria. Mercury was discovered there in 1497, and mining productions were taken over by the government in 1580.show more
