Through Štanjel through time

A walk through ancient Štanjel with the virtual boy Avik.

Štanjel is one of the oldest settlements in the Karst. Due to its strategic location, the Turn hill, on which the terraced settlement is spread today, has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Invisible traces from the Bronze and Iron Ages, when Štanjel was a prehistoric hillfort, protected by stone walls, will be revealed to you by the virtual boy Aviko.
