Goriška brda

Over the centuries, the cultural heritage of today is intertwined in Brda: from the cultivated landscape, the typical architecture of villages and castles, to the many ethnological attractions of the locals, manners and customs and typical way of speech.

Brda are mostly cultivated with vineyards and orchards, and a nature researcher can discover many interesting things about the geological, climatic, botanical and other features of this pristine landscape.

In Brda, cherries play a special role. It represents the first annual farmer's income and the whole families once depended on them. Cherries of Brda were renowned even in distant Vienna, and hardworking Brda women sold them also in Carniola, Carinthia, Styria and Salzburg area. In summer, peaches grow ripe, representing the largest share of Brda fruit. Apricots, pears, apples, figs and plums also excel here. The last fruit of the year is persimmon.

The Brda experienced a major turnaround in viticulture and winemaking after the Second World War, especially in 1957, when the modern wine cellar in Dobrovo began operating. Well established are also many private wineries, successfully marketing their highest quality wines.

All over the hills of Brda there are small villages, some serried like bird's nests, others spread over ridges, but all surrounded by greenery of vineyards and orchards, among which roads, ways and paths wind. The Brda are also architecturally interesting, since many old houses mostly preserved the old architecture. The Brda are a true paradise for cyclists, hikers and nature lovers.
