While most houses in Slovenia carry a household name, there are some houses which do not exist anymore and were deserted many years before anyone was aware of their existence. The household names for these houses is therefore lost as it was not documented anywhere either.
Through the period of our studies, we have found two distinct houses which originally carried the Mravinec surname in Hrast. This is the first of the two houses (in order of house address). The Mravinec surname is not a common surname in the Vinica Parish but can be found in many villages across the region.
