We will visit the suprisingly beautiful Škocjan Caves, and finish our journey in Lipica – home of the (world's) famous white Lipizzanz horses.Lipica Stud Farm is the cradle of the Lipizzaners, the noble white horses. Breeding began 400 years ago to meet the exclusive needs and demands of the Habsburgs. A local guide will show you around the estate; you will see the whole array of magnificent animals – uncertain dark foals, gentle mares, and proud stallions capable of performing the most amazing figures of the Spanish Riding School. The excellence of the Lipizzaners can be admired at their show, in which they astonish the audience with a sophisticated performance accompanied by classical music. Caves Regional Park includes a characteristic and unique karst region where the one-stop shop of karst features. Together with a system of caves, collapsed dolines and individual cultural monuments Park makes up a typical karst "architecture".
