Carsiana is a synopsis of the Karst landscape, an exhaustive representation of the region's main ecological aspects.

This small area holds natural depictions of the Karst region's main geomorphological formations and their respective plant populations.

Visitors can tour Carsiana unaccompanied, aided by informational material provided in Italian, Slovene, English and German, or request a guided tour, in Italian, Slovene or English, for groups.
