Royal hunting lodge in Kamniška Bistrica (year 1932-33)

In the period 1932-33, architect Jože Plečnik designed plans for a hunting lodge in Kamniška Bistrica, to order by the Yugoslav King Alexander. The architecture of the building is a ground floor with a stone-lined façade, a first-floor facade of wooden planks, and a two-story roof.

The hallway of the ground floor and first floor, which connects the rooms facing north, occupies the entire length of the building. On the ground floor there was a kitchen room, kitchen, dining room and guest room. The first floor leads to two separate staircases. The first floor has four rooms and a bathroom. The hunting lodge was completed1934, the same year a few months later, on 8 October 1934 in Marseille, France, a hunting lodge client died in the assassination.

After World War II, the hunting lodge was nationalized and became a protocol facility operated by the then Capricorn Wildlife Refuge. The hunting lodge became the starting point for hunting expeditions of Yugoslav political figures. It was used by the then Yugoslav leader Josip Broz-Tito, which is why the hunting lodge was given the popular name "Tito's Palace".

Political summit people went hunting and vacationing here.

The hunting lodge was rented in 1988 by the Stol company from Kamnik and renovated.
