A land of stone with soft heart
Nature and karst phenomena are main highlights of the Green Karst. The stone landscape is shaped by water, which carves through the stone creating unique landscape intertwined with thousands of caves. Every cave is special and offers unique visitors experience. The caves such as Postojna cave, Križna cave and Planinska cave will leave you speechless while you explore the mysterious underground of the Green Karst.
In the embrace of the Lipizzaner
The easiest way to reach Lipica is by motorway Ljubljana – Trst (Trieste) at the exit “Sežana – vzhod” and then just follow the signs for the remaining 5 kilometers. The stud farm at Lipica is the original stud farm where the bread of Lipizzaner began and it’s among the oldest cultivated horse breeds in the world. With a tradition of almost four and a half centuries it is among the oldest stud farms in the world as well and one of the most beautiful cultural-historical heritage sights of Slovenia, offering a home to 350 white horses.
The evergreen Karst
Green karst is one of those regions, where it might seem that it has nothing to offer to the tourists in the wintertime. As always, this is far away from the truth. The life slows down during winter and runs in different rhythm. Perfect for everybody who enjoys intimate moments, far away from the fast moving world.
