Congratulations, you have found our secret page.. don't you just think every website should have a secret place?!
There are lots of things and places at Lipizzaner Lodge to entertain kids and big kids!
And good deeds are always rewarded at Lipizzaner Lodge.. usually with a lollipop!
Kids can earn a lollipop for successfully completing our Slovenia jigsaw (puzzle), but the same reward applies for the Where's Wally puzzles.
We also have secret birdholes around the lodge with little secrets held in them.. we never tell you where they are, but are absolutely delighted when they are found!
We also have several boxes of lego here and are often surprised at the imaginations of our younger guests as they create houses with swimming pools, spaceships and every kind of vehicle!
You can also get a lollipop if you beat the high score on one of our 60 video arcade games in the lobby.. we have had a few "older" kids try and fail to get some of the more difficult records.
Some kids have gotten a lollipop for singing us a song, drawing a picture, demonstrating acrobatic excellence and others for just having a jolly good try or being awfully nice!
We have lots and lots of kids books, comics and games as well and we also have magic tricks for you to learn and guess what you get if you show us a successful trick? Yes a white rabbit, ok, you really get a lollipop.
There are surprises outdoors as well, do try to find our secret terrace and this summer we are building some new surprises outdoors for you to play in and to find!
If you are lucky enough to come in the winter and there is snow then you can also play one of our favourite games.. Spot the Lipizzaner! Can you spot the Lipizzaner in the photo below??
And last but not least, did you know that Slovenia is the only place in Europe apart from Wales where you can find real dragons? Boring old adults call them "human fish" or "proteus", but everyone knows they are really baby dragons.. but not so many other people know that they can live for over 100 years and even fewer people know that every hundred years.. one.. yes one baby dragon.. turns into a real dragon!
And if you don't believe us then just visit some of the local caves and you will see baby dragons for yourself and then you can make your own mind up!
One thing is for sure, some of the caves you will see in Green Slovenia are big enough to hide a dragon.
You can also walk about 900 metres from the Lodge to the next village of St Michael, (see photo above right) to find a 3 metre high dragon and the local hero Jakob, who killed the last evil dragon from the Postojna cave.
At night you can see across the fields and hills to the local Nanos mountain and.. if you are lucky.. you will see the scary red eye of the Nanos dragon!
There are many other local legends to hear about at the Lodge.. we look forward to your visit!
Oh yes and one last thing.. be sure to ask the permission of the person who buys the toothpaste before you eat your lollipop!!!
