Lipica Stud Farm has been ranked among the tourist destinations that have been awarded four stars and a Certificate of Excellence by visitors to the world`s largest tourism portal, TripAdvisor. Visitors to the portal ranked contact with the Lipizzaner horses in the first place in terms of unforgettable experiences, and many will look back fondly on Lipica Stud Farm for its relaxed atmosphere and beautiful landscape.

Lipica Stud Farm
was established in 1580, making it one of the oldest stud farms in the world and is a unique monument of European and global significance. The history of Lipica is closely linked to the Habsburgs who ruled the majority of Baroque Europe for 650 years. The horses - particularly the ideal Spanish horses - represented at that time a key strategic asset, so were of the utmost importance to the Habsburgs. In terms of climate and soil, Karst is very similar to Spain, so it was unsurprising that Archduke Charles decided in 1578 that the stud farm was to be located in the abandoned mansion of the Bishop of Trieste. On 19 May 1580 an agreement was signed to acquire the property and so the history of this unique stud farm began.

Today, Lipica Stud Farm is home to nearly 400 Lipizzaner horses. With their proud posture and graceful step, these horses are famous throughout the world. Visitors to Lipica can now explore and admire the beauty of the landscape, enjoying a real-life stud farm, which closely reflects its centuries-long tradition of breeding and rearing. The stud farm opens doors for guided tours, training and classical riding schools, riding lessons and nostalgic carriage rides.
