HistoryEdit

A prehistoric fortress stood west of the village on Mance Peak (Slovene: Mancin vrh, 747 m). This may have also been the site of Turner Castle (Turnerski grad), no trace of which remains today. During the Second World War there was an engagement between the Partisans and German forces at Tuji Grm on 22 May 1942. On 27 October 1944 German forces burned the village.[4]
