Home of The Lipizzaner Horses
Many of you will have heard of the famous white horses of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Established during the Austrian Empire in 1572, it is the oldest riding school of its kind in the world. The school uses exclusively the Lipizzaner horse which for many years came from the Lipica Stud Farm in the picturesque Karst region of western Slovenia which was part of the Austrian Empire at the time. The stud farm was founded in 1580 and, today, is a jewel among the cultural and historical monuments of the Republic of Slovenia. For over four centuries, the Lipica Stud Farm has nurtured the tradition of breeding and selecting thoroughbred horses. In the period after World War II, Lipica established its own classical riding school and has successfully performed with its horses at various equestrian events all over the world. The tour to the Lipica Stud Farm is a unique experience to admire the white horses. Their elegance and beauty will capture your attention with kindness and grace. A professional guide will introduce us to the historical background. On arrival at the stable we will be able to view a training session of the school horses. The tour will include a guided visit of the stables and free time to explore the venue on your own. After the visit our coach will drive us through pleasant countryside back to Piran.
