IDEAS FOR VISIT

Seminary or Lower Castle - Vipava
The Lower Castle stands above the spring of the Vipava River called Podfarovž. Like the old (upper) castle, it was probably built as early as in the 12th century, probably in the form of two tall buildings connected with the inner courtyard, which were the seat of the estates of the Counts of Bogen and the Counts of Andechs; it is first mentioned in sources in 329 as castrum inferius. After 1269, the Lower Castle and the associated estate became the property of the Patriarch of Aquileia, and in the 14th century it was claimed several times by the Counts of Gorizia; it was also owned by them in 1500, when it was inherited by the Habsburgs. In the second half of the 15th century, the fief was run by the Counts of Thurn, and at the end of the 15th century it was probably further fortified against Turkish invasions; in 1528, the combined estate of the upper and lower castles became the ownership of barons of Lanthieri. Probably in the second half of the 16th century they thoroughly modifie

Museum collection of analogue transmission technology on Nanos
One of the features of high-frequency electromagnetic waves used by UHF and TV transmitters is that they diffract on natural obstacles. As Slovenia is mostly mountainous, transmitters must be placed at the highest possible points. This is the difference from medium-wave transmitters, which until the introduction of UHF transmitters were installed exclusively on flat surfaces, in valleys and by the sea. Five basic transmitter centres were set up in Slovenia, specifically at Krvavec, Kum, Pohorje, Plešivec and Nanos. All these centres were built in the early 1960s and, with the help of a converter network, almost 100% of the populated areas were covered with their signal. Panorama First UHF audibility measurements in the area where the Nanos transmission centre stands today were made in 1953-1954. Since a large part of the Primorska and Notranjska regions can be covered from Nanos, Slovenian radio UHF programmes started to be broadcast in 1955, and Italian television programmes i

Slap near Vipava
It is a compact village under Planina, in the middle of which, next to the central square, stands the parish church and Lanthieri Mansion. Sources mention Slap for the first time in 1215. Around 1220, there was a command of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta with a hospice there, on whose foundations the church and the mansion are said to have been built. Lanthieri Mansion - the building complex stands next to the parish church and the central square at the top of the village. According to legend, a hospice of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta stood at this location in the Middle Ages, as allegedly evidenced by the consecrated crosses built on the outside of the neighbouring church. The land estate was probably developed from a manor house under the Zwegkhenburg family in the last quarter of the 17th century and soon after 1691 it became the property of the Flachenfeld family. The estate constantly changed hands, and in 1873 it came into the possession of the Counts of Lanthier

Lože Castle
COBENZL MANSION The building complex is partially dug into the hill above the village, it is surrounded by vineyards at its foot, and the forest stretches behind it. It is said that an unfortified medieval palace, built by the Counts of Bogen, stood there as early as in the 12th century, and was home to Leitenburg ministeriales, after whom the place was named. At the beginning of the 13th century, the estate was inherited by the Counts of Andechs, and after 1228 it became the property of the patriarchs of Aquileia. In 1351 they left it to the Habsburgs, who in 1399 granted it to the Lords of Walsee. In 1472 the estate became the property of the provincial prince, and in the second half of the 16th century it was first leased, and then owned by the Cobenzl family. The current mansion was commissioned in 1675 by Janez Filip Cobenzl. There was also a chapel of the Passion of Jesus in the main building. After the extinction of the family in 1810, the estate was inherited by Count Michael

Roman-era tombs
Roman-era tombs, discovered in Laurinova Street, are a good example of family grave plots that can be found in necropolises of large cities. The standard form is cremated burial, which has been known in this area since the Early Iron Age. A novelty are so-called tomb chests, i.e. crates made of roof tiles or stone slate slabs, or a combination of both. An urn with cremated bones, as well as accessories that accompanied the deceased in the afterlife, were found in the chests. A coin to pay Charon for passage is an obligatory addition. In the tomb chests found in Vipava, a mug and a cup, both made of imported, Italian pottery, were an obligatory addition to the urn. The urn itself was always an ordinary home-made pot. It is interesting that the discovered graves were usually used at least for double burials - they feature two urns, two mugs and two cups. An unusual exception that is not known elsewhere is the brick chest in which as many as eight burials were discovered with all associa

Church of the Holy Cross in Gradišče pri Vipavi
This oriented church, surrounded by the walls of the former cemetery, stands in the middle of the village, on top of a hill north-east of Vipava. Leading to the church are fourteen chapels, representing the Stations of the Cross, built in 1882. At first, they featured oil paintings of the Stations of the Cross, which were commissioned from Simon Ogrin. Between 1986 and 1989, the paintings were replaced by frescoes, the work of Krištof Zupet, while the old Way of the Cross was moved to the filial church of Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted in Log.
