Pliskovica, Slovenia, is located in the municipality of Sezana, in the coastal region of Slovenia and near the border with Italy. It can be reached from the Italian city of Trieste after a twenty-minute drive; alternatively, driving from Ljubljana it would take you around one-and-a-half hours to get here. It is advisable to bring your own transportation or rent a car, as local transportation is nonexistent in some places in this area. If you are driving here from Ljubljana or anywhere from the east, just follow the A1 highway and turn off at Divaca towards Sezana.
Pliskovica is found in the Karst region of Slovenia, which is characterised by dry limestone plateaus and many caves and rock formations. Visitors arriving to the area normally come for two reasons -- to visit the UNESCO-protected Skocjan Caves or the Lipizzaner Horse Studs. Both offer an unforgettable experience and should not be missed. However, there is a lot more to this region than just these two things. Stanjel to the north offers a Medieval fort whose walls hide a fully inhabited village with spectacular views over the surrounding area.
Moreover, the region is famous for its wine making and a visit to a local wine cellar can be a unique experience as well. Some families also offer gastro-touristic excursions, taking you around to taste locally made cheese, dairy products, olives, and salami. Last but not least, the Adriatic Coast with its atmospheric cities of Koper, Izola, Piran, and Portoroz is close enough for a day trip too. If you are here during the summer, a swim in the turquoise waters with a view of the historic centers of this places is guaranteed to provide you with an unforgettable experience.
There aren't many Pliskovica, Slovenia hostels, but what exists is found on a historic site. The four-hundred-year old monastery that offers an herbal garden and orchard can provide a glimpse into the past and a chance to have a cheap stay in a cultural heritage monument. However, there are other options for hostels around -- Sezana, Vipava, Koper, Izola, Ankaran, and Piran all offer hostels, so everybody will find something in the region to fit their taste and budget.
