Karst is also known as karst plateau, a rocky limestone plateau that extends into the North East of Italy from the Julian Alps to the Adriatic Sea (in the province of Gorizia and Trieste), through the western Slovenia and Istria. Every two years, Monrupino with its fortress erected by the natives in the XIV century, becomes one of the most important lookouts in this fascinating area.
A folk festival is held here, a traditional reenactment of the wedding, as it was celebrated in the 19th century. The event, deeply felt by the inhabitants of Slovenian culture who inhabit the hinterland of Trieste, in recent years has become a real tourist attraction. The wedding lasts for four days, from the last Thursday to the last Sunday of August. In this period all people may take part in the celebrations, wearing traditional dress from 19th century.
