The oldest testimonies from 1848 state that on the premises of the current restaurant, there was a haulage or carriage drivers inn. The plan to build the Southern railway was born around 1842 and during that time there were a lot of engineers gathering near Kopač, studying the terrain for the construction of the railway. Legendary tale says that the landlord of Pr’Kopač was afraid that the railway would take away his profits so he shouted “We will have to work as diggers now!”. This has slowly evolved into becoming the house name for Kopač which stands for “digger” in Slovene.

His fears didn't come true and the restaurant still stands to this day. What was left behind is the name “Kopač”. če bi se lahko za trenutek popeljali v čas furmanov, bi opazili, da gostje niso izbirali.

In the past, there was only 1 dish on the menu. But that didn’t stop the travellers from near and far lands because the food was so delicious that tables were always full.

“Pr’Kopač” restaurant is still family-run and each generation adds something new to the heritage. The restaurant became famous with the fried chicken, hot stews and blood sausage with sauerkraut to the point of becoming legendary.
