Event descriptionLipica Open is a popular season starter in Slovenia traditionally held in early MArch in the SW of the country (Kras region). For more than 20 years it has been delivering orienteers interesting and technically demanding competitions. Owing to Mediterranean climate and proximity of Adriatic sea hardly any snow falls in Kras region in winter time, which makes the area also very suitable for early spring training camps.
