Art Heritage Michael Ruppe
In Slovenia, almost unknown painter Michael Ruppe was born in the nearby village Ovčjak. Many of his works have wandered to England, India and America, in our area they are found in Ljubljana, Vienna and Croatia.
His sensitive landscape paintings adorn the home country of many Gottscheer emigrants and are transferred into custody from generation to generation. Ruppe attended elementary school in Koprivnik, therefore, a village Koprivnik had been painted several times.
One of the original painting of the village is on display in the premises of the Institute Nesseltal Koprivnik.
Spend this summer vacation a bit differently, feel the unspoilt nature in the Kočevje virgin forests and the richness of our homeland, Slovenia. Welcome to Koprivnik.
