24.4. - A day without food waste
24.04.2023
Today, discarded food is one of the major global challenges, which carries with it a high financial, ethical and environmental price. We throw away huge amounts of unused, expired or even fresh food, because in developed countries we always have fresh and cheap food at our fingertips. This year (April 24) we celebrated the Slovenian Day without food waste for the third time. With it, we want to encourage every individual to reduce and prevent the creation of wasted food and to present the many possibilities of using food products that often remain unused. These are also the goals of our long-term project Hrana ni za tjavendan, which we implement together with the Ecoschool program. Anyone who is committed to reducing the burden on our planet can join the initiative, regardless of whether it is an individual, a foundation, a company or another organization. By taking effective action, we can become an example and inspiration for people around the world. The Slovenian Day wit

Battle of the Frigidus
The battle between the armies of Roman Emperor Theodosius and usurper Eugenius on 5 and 6 September 394 in the upper Vipava Valley the only event of global historical significance in the entire ancient history of the area. Speaking of its great importance is the large number of mentions in ancient and medieval literature. While a single record sheds light on most of events in military and political history, or by two to three at the most, one comes across a description or at least a mention of the Battle of the Frigidus in most historians of late antiquity who describe the era of Emperor Theodosius. Their descriptions serve as basis for presentations of this event by Byzantine and Western Medieval writers of chronicles and church histories. Despite the large number of reports, a reconstruction of the event that would critically take into account all ancient records on the one hand, and the geographical and strategic characteristics of the battle site on the other, is an exceptionally c

Church of St. Stephen in Vipava
The parish church of St. Stephen dates between 1460 and 1465. It is an exceptional type of building, as it features a rectangular nave and a long two-bay choir walled on five of eight sides, surrounded by five two-arched buttresses. Preserved from the original medieval church from around 1460-65 are the presbytery and parts of the nave walls. The church was built almost completely anew in 1556 (as stated on the side portals). An independent tower, visible in Valvasor's depiction of Vipava from 1679, was probably built at that time on its south-western side. It was modified into a bell tower in the 18th century and topped with an onion dome. What points to its defensive function in the 16th century is the sloping fortified base, similar to the defensive towers of the surrounding manor houses at the time. The church was extended to the west between 1679 and 1750, so now it touches bell tower; it was also renovated in the Baroque style at that time. The presbytery is fully covered in fr

Roženek Mansion / Šivic Mansion / Zajec Mansion - Podnanos
ROŽENEK MANSION It stands in the hamlet of Podbrje, south-west of Podnanos, on a terrace above the road leading from Podnanos to Podraga. According to Valvasor, the Roženek building complex was built by Janez Anton Rossetti (who died in 1670), the founder of the Notranjska and Gorizia branches of this family from Bergamo. During the Second World War, the residential building burned down, after which it was only partially restored. The image of the buildings preserved on Valvasor's print differs slightly from that of today, as the complex has undergone several alterations. The buildings are arranged around the inner courtyard. The northern wing features a residential building that once had two entrances: one faced the nearby church of Saints Cosmas and Damian, and the other faced the lawn in front of the building. The inner courtyard has a preserved series of five arcades on the eastern side on the ground floor, while the arcades on the ground floor and first floor of the northern re

Gradišče pri Vipavi
Gradišče pri Vipavi is a beautiful Primorska village, situated below the steep slopes of the Nanoška Plateau in the upper Vipava Valley.

The route to Gradišče is very simple; drive two kilometres from Vipava to the car park at the top of the village (240 m), from where the best starting point is for a trip to Gradiška Tura (761 m) and Plaz (529 m), either by the harder climbing route or the easier route.

ACCOMODATIONS

Camp Vrhpolje
Not far away from Vipava is the pleasant village of Vrhpolje. The land of Vrhpolje was marked as early as Roman times. In 394, a battle between the Roman emperor Theodosius and the rebel Eugene is said to have taken place on the field against Duplje and Zemono. According to historical sources, the outcome was influenced by the bora, which turned arrows in favor of Theodosius into Eugene's soldiers. Now the village is known for renowned winemakers and excellent wines, which are connected by the Vipava Wine Road. The village of Vrhpolje is an excellent starting point from where we can go to nature. From here we can climb the Nanos plateau, which is a real paradise for cycling and hiking lovers.
