HIKE DESCRIPTION

Since Vipava Valley is known worldwide as a prestigious wine destination, we offer you Obelix – Hike & Wine non-competitive tour.

The UTVV is set in the Valley where one of the most important battles of the late Roman period, The Battle of the Frigidus, also called the Battle of the Frigid River, took place in 394. The battle was fought between 5 and 6 September 394 between the army of the Eastern Emperor Theodosius I and the army of the Western Roman ruler Eugenius. With Theodosius’ victory, the Roman Empire was united under one emperor for the last time in history. Also, the victory of Theodosius brought the final religious dominance of Christianity in Europe.
