Josip Jur?i?'s birthplace in Muljava is now a museum.

Josip Jur?i? (4 March 1844 - 3 May 1881) was a Slovene writer and journalist. He was born in Muljava, Austrian Empire (now part of the municipality of Ivan?na Gorica, Slovenia).[1] He died from tuberculosis in Ljubljana.

Jur?i? followed the literary program proposed by Fran Levstik and was one of the most influential Slovene romantic realists.

The 15.6 km (9.7 mi)-long Jur?i? Trail (Slovene: Jur?i?eva pot) from Vi?nja Gora (where he attended primary school; he also attended school in Videm) through Muljava to the source of the Krka River and Krka Cave is named after him. The house where he was born is now an open-air museum.
