Picturesque Villages

Experience the serenity of the countryside on the western part of Slovenia. Discover 3 picturesque villages in Soca valley, Vipava valley and Brda region.
Robidišče, the westernmost village in Slovenia, is a charming living monument of the past times. This tiny village, amidst high mountains and flat region of Venecia Giulia, lies on the edge of Soca valley. Taste sheep cheese, visit over 300-year old smoke kitchen and get amazed by unique type of construction in Venetian Slovenian architecture style characterized by buildings from hewn stone blocks, outer stone stairways and wooden exterior corridors called ganks. Šmartno, medieval village between the endless vineyards in Brda region, is one of the best-preserved cultural villages in Slovenia. It shines on top of a hill that can be seen far from the distance. Walled village with five towers breathes the atmosphere of the Middle Ages. Vipavski križ, a pearl of Vipava valley, stands on a hillock surrounded by fields, orchards and vineyards.
