The Visoko estate in the Poljane Valley is part of this settlement. It comprises two large farms, first mentioned in documents as early as the 13th century. The Kalan farm was arranged by the writer and politician Ivan Tavčar into his manor. In his best-known work, The Visoko Chronicles, Tavčar describes events taking place on this estate in the 17th century, when the Kalan family were overlords of the entire valley. There is a bronze statue of the writer by the sculptor Jakob Savinšek close to the manor house. Tavčar is also buried at Visoko.
