The Karst, a landscape that is barren and stony at first sight but warm and infinitely rich upon closer inspection, is an inexhaustible source of creativity. This unique cycle trail runs through places that boast interesting works of art by artists and artisans of the Karst, and thus connects the highpoints of Karst culture. Follow in the footsteps of the great Slovenian poet Srečko Kosovel, into the world of the writer Branka Jurca and admire graphic works of art by Jože Spacal. Appreciate the finest architecture by Maks Fabiani and expressionist paintings by Tone Kralj. Explore the large opus of paintings by August Černigoj in the kingdom of Lipizzan horses. Ride through villages famous for artists like the linguist Karel Štrekelj, the comic actor Gojmir Lešnjak (‘Gojc’) and the quadriplegic painter Albert Zafreda. Visit the Museum of Slovenian Film Actors in Divača and the native village of the poet Ciril Zlobec. Enjoy the ride and explore the same landscape that has acted as inspiration for even the greatest artists.
