The Karst Living Museum

LUZ, Karla Jankovič, Urška Kranjc, Irena Balantič / 2014

The Karst Living Museum covers 1,000 hectares and comprises the area between Sežana, Lipica and the former border between Slovenia and Italy. Featuring typical karst phenomena, it is an important ecological area, with its larger part belonging to Natura 2000 network. The renovation of the area, which was closed to the public for almost half a century, is a story of coexistence between man and nature. There are more than 20 km of new and reconstructed trails and resting places, which offer a view of an attractive mixture of karst landscape and cultural heritage. Several objects were reconstructed, such as an open well, shepherds’ cottages, dry walls, the old gunpowder magazine in Sežana and the road to Bazovica. Modern urban equipment unifies single spaces of the museum.
