ABOUT THE KARST AND SUBALPINE REGION

Bellow the high Alpine peaks and north of the seaside, you will find a green stretch of subalpine Slovenia. The territory itself has many different faces. Starting with the emerald river Soča valley on the west. Above the river there are vines of Goriška Brda, on the other side, there are high plateaus like Banjšica and Trnovski Forest, and high top of the Nanos mountain, known for excellent view over Slovenia.

Direction south there is a scenic plateau called Kras- the world of underground wonders, stunning natural phenomena and unique tastes. The Karst surprises with Postojna Cave, which is the most visited cave in Europe, Škocjan Caves with an extraordinary underground gorge and other world-famous special features.

Lipica has been the original stud farm of white Lipizzaner horses since 1580. Štanjel is the architectural gem of the Karst. Delicious fare can be found along the Brkini Fruit Road and the Karst Wine Route.

If you are looking for the natural wonder, then you are at the right place. Admire the emerald color of Soca river. Dense net of gravel roads and nice view in the Banjška planota and Trnovski forest. Astonishing stone built old houses and typical architecture of Kras. Fantastic scenery goes below the ground…. Skocjan caves will surprise you with the beauty and size.
