The mansion “The Old post” is located in the centre of Vrhnika and has a significant historical value. It was also used by one of the previous presidents of Slovenia.

The house is one of the oldest and most important buildings in Vrhnika. It stands on the banks of the Ljubljanica river, where until 1790 there was a port. The old post office with toll house and Inn was probably built in the 15th century. In Valvasor’s time, it had an extra floor, and it was actually created by merging two houses. In 1728, the Austrian Emperor Charles VI. spent the night here. In 1809, when the house was renovated, one floor was removed.

The building was renovated in 1988 and 2006. The heating is on city gas.

There is a beautifully restored sun clock on a building that is still working.

There is a large garden outside with special vegetation that attract people from everywhere. The plot is fenced. The garden offers a nice place to relax or shade in hot summer days. The plot in total has 2.450 m²


The mansion can be used as a residential house or for business purposes. Due to the charming and unique architecture it can offer a great and pleasant residence. The ground floor is vaulted, and the first floor has large rooms, higher ceilings and mosaic parquets. There are also admire great frescos in the rooms.

The house has three floors. The ground floor and first floor are approx. 700 sqm, the loft area has high ceilings, is not finished, has approx. 350 m²

      How to buy property with Tranio


      Send us an enquiry with an approximate description of the property or investment project you’re interested in.

      Meeting the partners

      After clarifying your enquiry, we will introduce you to our partners and/or local agents.

      Offer selection

      We will help you to select suitable options. Tranio does not charge a commission for this — the property price remains the same as if you contacted our partner directly.

      Viewing tour

      You then view the property or properties you have chosen. Our partners or agents from Tranio's European offices will meet you in situ.

      Transaction closure

      Having chosen the best property, you will sign the sales or investment agreement (for development).


      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
