Karst,

plateau, where houses are built from stone. Together they withstand the bora wind.

Mulberry tree

Entering the Ščuka yard you can admire the 300 year old mulberry tree in the worldest unique shape of umbrella. We take you to the times when mulberry trees came to Karst and later had important role in silk production. At authentic Karst yard you get to know all about typical architecture elements and listen to story about stone, which is still Karst man's the greatest inspiration.

Prosciutto drying facility

Tour continues to prosciutto drying facility, which is one of the rarest, where prosciuttos and other products are dried only with the help of the bora wind. Inside you get to know more about traditional prosciutto making and whole lot more secrets that were passed on from our ancestors.
