Local nameRojstna hiša dr. Franceta Prešerna
LocationŽirovnica, Slovenia

The Prešeren House is a house in the village of Vrba in the Municipality of Žirovnica in Slovenia. It is the house where the Slovene poet France Prešeren was born in 1800. The Slovene theologian and archbishop Anton Vovk was also born in the same house in 1900. The house is a good example of an Upper Carniolan farmhouse.

Since 1939, it has housed a small museum collection with furnishings from the poet’s time.It was originally a 16th-century wooden building with a stone built cellar. It was heavily damaged and rebuilt after a fire in 1856. It is mainly due to the efforts of Fran Saleški Finžgar that the house was turned into a museum.
