The Ljubljana Castle and its form above the historic old town stir the imagination of anyone visiting our capital city of Ljubljana.

Lipica Stud Farm13.02.2018
The Lipica Stud Farm is famous for being one of the oldest stud farms in Europe, and is especially known as the birthplace of the noble horse breed – the Lipizzaner. These horses are famous for their intelligence and diligence. As the locals like to say, they also exhibit a bit of that old karstic stubbornness, which is characteristic of the inhabitants of this rocky landscape. Because of their character, the Lipizzaners are the basis of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna and the pride of riders all around the world.
