Vipava Valley - the land of sun, wine and sports activities

The Vipava Valley is a wine-growing region with fertile soil and has always attracted people to come and live here. Historians assume that the valley had already been inhabited before Christ, perhaps even in the Late Stone Age. Archeological sites show that it reached its full bloom under the Roman Empire. 

TIC Ajdovščina,
The valley has a rich cultural legacy, reflected in the manors, castles, numerous churches, painted with great works of art and galleries. One of them is the Pilon Gallery, which contains artistic works of the great artist and the native of Ajdovščina, Veno Pilon. The legacy is also shown in the interesting architecture, the well-preserved fortress Castra and entire settlements, considered to be cultural monuments, such as the villages of Vipavski Križ, Šmarje, Šturje, etc.

Furthermore, visitors can attend many sports activities in this area. Theme paths will let you discover the beauties of nature, you can enjoy in cycling across the valley and if you love different sport activities, tennis, basketball, football or running, you have to visit our Sports Centre Ajdovščina, where you can practice your favourite sport in one of the sports halls or in the summer and winter swimming pool.

Moreover, you can take a look at Ajdovščina from the air and if you are brave enough you can drop from the air by parachute.

One of the distinctions of our country is our well-known natives and their tradition.
