Through the history of the land in the draught

THE TELLING TRACES OF THE GREEN KARST'S TURBULENT PAST

This interesting trip is a proper getaway from the everyday routine. The Park of Military History Pivka, Prem Castle and “The Old Lady” in Predjama house exhibits that teach you about the past and invite you to think about the present.

The area of the Green Karst has been marked by its strategic location. This is why various armies have been waging war in this area and different peoples and cultures have been meeting here since antiquity. They left behind rich traces, which can nowadays be discovered at amazing locations through the stories of a local guide. The “Through the history of the land in the draught” programme connects the main strategic points of the Green Karst destination, which have through centuries played an important role in shaping the modern-day appearance of Slovenia.

We will head down the trails where battles for supremacy took place in Roman times, the Middle Ages, during the Napoleonic Wars, the two World Wars and also in the time of the Slovenian Independence War.

In the Park of Military History Pivka, we will actively strengthen our team spirit with a team-building programme and after having lunch in the military Kantina we will explore the nearby Prem Castle, where we will have a taste of the authentic Brkini plum brandy in the castle's courtyard. The trip will finish in Predjama, where we will enjoy the nice view of Predjama Castle and see two very interesting museum collections, displayed in the neatly-renovated and authentic homestead called “The Old Lady” – the first collection exhibits the diverse wildlife of the local forests, while the second one tells the stories of the First World War.

The programme includes:

  • Team building at the Park of Military History Pivka
  • Military lunch in Kantina Pivka
  • Guided tour of Prem Castle and tasting of Brkini plum brandy
  • Entrance fee and guided tour of “The Old Lady” museum collections
