Whenever we thought about Kras in the past, we thought of a bare landscape covered with stones, unfit for life, a place where a strong bora blows. When we think of the Karst today, we think of a wooded landscape, mingled with settlements and vineyards, which give us the glorious Teran wine and the well-known Karst prosciutto. However, the Karst represents much more. Here we find special natural phenomena that are not found elsewhere in Slovenia and which have given their name to similar phenomena elsewhere in the world. Here we find wonderful cycling and other thematic routes, beautiful caves and, of course, friendly and hospitable locals.
In these two days of Cycling in Karst region, we will take you through the fascinating karst landscape, along the picturesque paths that we find most attractive, through the villages that remind us of the old times, we will stop in cafes where, we think, the coffee taste the best and we have chosen local restaurants where the food is excellent.
You are most warmly invited to join us on this amazing two-day cycling gathering!
