High in the south of Slovenia, near Italy and the Adriatic Sea, rises the great plateau of the Karst, a mass of limestone shaped by water. The trickle and seep deep within has over the ages dissolved away rock and opened up massive underground networks of caves.
There are rivers and lakes, sinkholes and chasms, in a world that is often beautiful and sometimes like an artist’s fantasy. Join Dr Edvard Kobal to see images of the Karst and find out about the landscape itself and the food it produces in the loamy terra rossa soil, including the red wine known as teran and the air-dried ham pršut. (All being well, we may even be able to sample some.)
