Tour one of the oldest stud farms
Not far away from Koper, in the incredible natural surroundings, amidst fairytale meadows in the shade of oak and chestnut trees, beautiful and charming white horses await you. The oldest European stud farm that has been breeding the same horses without interruption is a cultural and historical monument, which impresses visitors with its horses and its surprising landscape. After entering the estate, tour the oldest barn with representatives of all the classic Lipizzaner lines, visit the Lipizzaner and horse carriage museum, walk on pastures, through avenues of trees and parks, and learn about the special features of Lipica and the Karst Region. There is a playground in the park as well.
Did you know that the noble white Lipizzaner horses are from Slovenia? Their original stud farm has been in Lipica in the Karst since 1580 (actually, it has been in operation for over 400 years). You can marvel at their elegance while watching shows and classical riding training. You can experience the Karst Region in a carriage, or you can go riding.
The visit to the estate in Lipica can be even more enjoyable if you take a carriage ride. Friendly carriage drivers and elegant Lipizzaner horses will take you on pleasant paths, where you can observe herds of horses and the green landscape. Carriages drawn by Lipizzaner horses are also available for special photo shoots – at weddings, for example.
