PEARLS OF KARST
Yellow is the colour of the sun, which strokes the picturesque Mediterranean towns on the Adriatic coast. Its rays are taken with the beauty of the Karst landscape, planted with olive groves and vineyards, orchards of peaches and cherries.
Not far away is home to the world famous white beauties, the Lipizzaner horses. Sightseeing of the equestrian centre provides a nice trip in the Karst nature. Sunday riders as well as demanding riders will be satisfied. Dynamic golf course is available for golf lovers, and you can raise your adrenaline in the evenings by visiting the Casino.
Beauty and diversity of the Karst are perfect for the active sightseeing. The Karst curves and slopes and warm sunshine invite cyclists, and hills with typical villages invite walkers and hikers, and the rocks invite climbers. The golf course is located in Lipica, and horseback riding is widespread in other parts of the Karst.
THE KARST VILLAGES
A typical Karst villages located at hill tops are spread across the width and length of Karst. There probably is not a man who would not be touched by a scenic and popular Štanjel with its characteristic stone houses and historical flair. Exploration of other similar but smaller villages may prove to be a proper search for treasures.
THE KARST UNDERGROUND
The diversity of Karst underground is represented by the world famous Postojna Cave, the unique Škocjan Caves and little known, but no less worth seeing, Vilenica Cave.
All sea lovers will love its proximity. Coffee or shopping in Trieste, a walk along the sea around the town of Miramar, a few hours distance from Venice, there are quite a few destinations that can be found across the border. Although, in truth, beauty and diversity of the Slovenian coast is not only unique but also calls for coming back over and over again.
PROXIMITY TO THE SEA
A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, the astonishing diversity of Karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for such popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors, which has already reached 35 million in 200 years.
