Where we are
Located at half-hour from the Italian-slovenian border of Fernetti, the village of Štjak, formerly San Giacomo sul Monte, is an ancient hamlet nestled at some 500 metres above sea level, in the middle of a lush vegetation. It once represented a stopover for the pilgrims on the way to Santiango de Compostela, hence its strategic importance for the caravans that crossed the territory of"Švica on the Karst", so called because of its orographic likeness to Switzerland.
The village position allows one to reach in just a few minutes some world-famed locations, such as the Postojna and Skocjan's caves, Lipica's horse centre, the beatiful medieval hamlet of Stanjel , to mention but a few. Štjak is also the ideal starting point to hike along the Terrano's route (the road of the typical local red wine of the Karst).
