Slovenia

  • Slovenia’s world-famous Lipica horse farm, celebrated for its aristocratic Lipizzaners, has been operating uninterruptedly since its foundation in 1580.
  • Couples still get married to this day on Bled Island. According to tradition, in order to ensure a long and happy marriage, the groom must carry the bride up the 99 steps to the island!
  • The oldest vine in the world is located in Slovenia’s second largest city, Maribor. Although it is over four hundred years old, its Žametna Črnina grapes still produce 25 litres of wine every year!
