Lipica Stud Farm and Skocjan Caves Day Trip from Rovinj
Your guide will meet you at the passenger terminal to escort you to the Lipica Stud Farm, one of the oldest stud farms in the world. In a unique natural environment, in the middle of fairy meadows and the shade of oak and chestnut trees, you will find beautiful white horses that will certainly enchant you. Taking a walk on the Stud Farm estate is like traveling through history. The old manor house and the gracefulness of the Lipizzan horse will take you back in time to when horse carriages were the most prominent way of transport. For more than 400-years, the tradition of breeding these white horses has been preserved in the center of the unique Karst landscape, which today represents one of the most beautiful natural and cultural monuments in Slovenia. On your trip, you will experience the world of the Lipizzan horse, walk through the stable and visit Lipikum, the Lipizzaner Museum dedicated to various aspects of the stud and the Lipizzan breed.You will then explore Škocjan Caves, a cave system in Slovenia which together with the underground stream of the Reka river represents the most important natural phenomenon of the Karst region and one of the largest underground canyons in the world. Due to its exceptional significance, Škocjan Caves was entered on UNESCO’s list of natural and cultural world heritage sites in 1986. Its colorful underground world is adorned with giant stalactites, water rapids and beautiful lakes. On your trip, you will view the world’s largest underground canyon and walk across the bridge which is situated 131-feet (40-meters) above the underground river. The panoramic view at the exit of the cave will certainly leave you speechless. The final stop on your tour will take you to the Škocjan Caves Regional Park, which is like an open-air museum, is well-known for its ethnological, karstological, geological and archaeological monuments, as well as for its natural and cultural heritage. You can relax and stroll through the park, enjoying the unspoiled nature. Your tour will conclude at the passenger terminal.
Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle Day Trip from Rovinj
Postojna Cave, the queen of all caves, is the best-known cave in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world’s largest karst monuments. This is the only place in the world where the underground landscape can be traversed on an electric train and where you get to meet this underground kingdom’s most famous inhabitant – the proteus (olm) – up close. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, 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 (more than 36 million of them in over 200 years).The Predjama Castle reigns over the surrounding area, not far from the Postojna Cave, in the idyllic village of Predjama. This picturesque, magnificent, defiant, mysterious and impregnable castle has been perched up in the middle of a vertical 123-meter high cliff for more than 800 years. Its romantic appeal is further emphasized by the idyllic Lokva River, which disappears into the underground world deep down below the castle. As the only preserved cave castle in Europe, the Predjama Castle offers a unique insight into the building techniques and resourcefulness of people in the Middle Ages, who were looking for and found a safe harbor for themselves right at the entrance into the cave. During a siege that took place in the 15th century, the castle provided a refuge for its best known and most notorious owner - Erazem of Predjama. The legend about the courageous robber baron Erazem, who remained undefeated until one of his servants betrayed him, is still in people’s minds, inspiring and alluring as ever. It was this safe abode of his which helped the brave knight resist the besiegers without much difficulty for more than a year.
