Predjama Castle & Lipica

Travel map from Croatia to Slovenia back and forth through Trieste to Zagreb


After a long trip through Croatia, we went on a short trip through Slovenia.
First we had Predjama Castle. Very picturesque castle!


In Slovenia, in the town of Lipica, there is a stud farm, where we visited.
The history of the Lipizzan stud farm is closely connected with the history of the Habsburg monarchy. The stud farm was established in 1580.
At the beginning of the 18th century, during the reign of Joseph I, the stables were expanded.
Until 1916, the Lipica stud farm was always a private property of the Habsburg dynasty.
In 1947 the stud farm in Lipica became part of the Republic of Yugoslavia. Then the farm had only 11 horses.
In the 1960s, the Lipitsky plant was opened to tourists and a new stage of development began. In 1996, the stud farm became a state institution, which belongs to the Republic of Slovenia.
Horses of the Lipizzan breed not only have beauty and nobility, but also a rare combination of courage, strength, temperament and intelligence. The main exit of the Vienna Royal Palace consists of snow-white trotters of this breed.

How do you like this muzzle!



After Lipica we went straight to Bled. This city is located on the shores of the lake of the same name. We had another hotel there. Here is the address:  

Very good hotel! And what delicious breakfasts!
And we again remembered 2004, when we were here and again went for a walk around the lake.


Now we have to complete our next journey. To do this, firstly, we need to deliver our Australian couple to the train station in Trieste so that they continue their journey through Italy, and secondly, the Israeli couples went to Zagreb, handed over the car and flew home.

And last but not least, here we are:
