Prestranek Castle

Seven kilometres from Postojna, amidst the unspoilt nature, lies Prestranek Castle, the former branch of the Lipica Stud Farm. Prestranek Castle was first mentioned as early as 1581 and was built by the Barons of Edling from Vipava.

Equestrianism has long been present in this area. It first appeared around 1699 and soon after ended up in the hands of the Emperor of Inner Austria Charles VI and his daughter Maria Theresa, who contributed greatly to the development of equestrianism in Slovenia. Today, Prestranek Castle has one of the biggest and oldest indoor riding arenas in Slovenia and the largest Icelandic horse riding schoolin Slovenia.

Prestranek Castle is the only riding centre in Slovenia where you can overnight in six neatly furnished apartments and indulge yourself in the Castle Restaurant with home-made house specialties made from home-reared organic hay-fed Angus beef.
