HISTORICAL OVERVIEW

Smrikve is a place surrounded by few prehistoric settlements but the modern history presented in the following pages that my family started to write starts in 1924.

The pinus pinea wood that stands above todays Smrikve was planted in 1957 when my grandparents arrived in this place. Before pinus pinea trees were planted all around the prehistoric hillfort settlement Castion or Vrh was full of Smrikve plants.
