Ancient Roman Defense Walls in Slovenia (and Croatia)

Have you heard of Hadrian's Walls? Well, belive it or not, something like that we have also in Slovenia (and Croatia). These are late ancient roman walls, which protected the inner part of the Roman Empire.

The end of 2nd and beginning of 3rd century AD were quite turbulent years. The unknown tribes from the East wanted to enter the rich Roman Empire. Since we in today’s Slovenia have a great location between Eastern part and central part of Europe, most of the invaders went through our territory.

Take a little and leave a little,
And do not come again;
For if you do,

And there will be an end of you.

The hay storage was one of the most important farmer’s works, if they wanted to have enough food for their animal throughout the cold and snowy winter. All around the world you would find similar ways, however in Slovenia they are very unique.

When you are out of the city, on the countryside, very soon you are going to notice interesting, free standing, vertical, wooden, and open and roofed constructions in the middle of the fields. They look as a goat and that is how they have got their name: KOZA or a goat in Slovenian Language.
