Networking Trip: KRAS – A different take

Saturday, 22 October 2016, day trip
Departure: At 8:30 am, the bus will depart from a previously agreed location in Portorož.

The day trip will start with a visit to the Tabor military museum. The museum, located in a defence tower, is one of the largest private military museums in Europe. It opened its doors to the public in 1994 and has since received 43 plaques and awards. The museum’s owner, whose extensive collection of military items earned him an entry in the 1989 Guinness book of records, has so far collected over 60 000 items of historical importance. The exhibition encompasses uniforms, weaponry, flags, awards and decorations and more dating back to WWI (particularly the Isonzo front) and WWII, as well as items dating back to the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, the Napoleonic era, Austria-Hungary under the rule of Maria Theresia etc. We will also pay a visit to the nearby St. Michael’s church with frescoes by renowned Slovenian painter and sculptor Tone Kralj.

We will continue with a tasting at the Pršutarna Lokev prosciutto producing facility, located just a stone’s throw away, where we will indulge in prosciutto and other delicacies the Karst region has to offer.

Next, our journey will take us to the Lipica stud farm, origin of the Lipizzan breed of horse, which boasts a centuries-long tradition of breeding and selecting the Lipizzan. Guided by caretakers, we will explore one of the oldest stud farms in the world and take a stroll down the impressive tree-lined paths.

Our trip will conclude with a delicious dinner at one of the inns on our way back to Portorož.
