This farm is home to the famous Lipizzaner horses.

How did the Lipizzaner horses get to Djakovo. When Napoleon was racing across Europe and won battles at Austerlitz and other famous battle sites, there was fear that he would defeat the Austro-Hungarians and capture Vienna. As a result, the Emperor divided up the herd and "farmed" some out to the Djakovo region to be saved from the ravages of war. These are now raised at the State Stud Farms in Djakovo. They are magnificent creatures and we enjoyed seeing them.

Lipizzaner Horse Farm

This farm is a unique and old original farm that raises the Lipizzaner horses for showing their fine skills. Saw young ponies who start out dark then as they grow, they transform into their beautiful white color.

Must see

Located on 2 locations - near the center of Djakovo and in Ivandvor which is around 7km from Djakovo. If you are in Djakovo you should definitely give this stud farm a visit. Ivandvor is free and you don't have to buy a ticket. You will see beautiful animals and environment.

Beatuful place for horselovers - the best Lipizzaner stallions in historian place. We can see training and perfomance of Spanish riding school or/and four-in-hand drive. Surely should be visited stable in Ivandvor - only 6 km from Djakovo!

Like a fairy tale

We went both to Đakovo and Ivandvor farms. The first horses were in stalls while the latter were running freely. I am not even interested in animals in general, but this was super interesting, we got to learn a lot about Lipizzan horses and our guide even helped us to pose with them. :)

If you come to Đakovo, you have to visit Training school Lippizanes. We heard that we have to come during Winter holidays than we can see the bal of Lippizanes , that is something wondeful.

Beautiful Lippizaners in the heart of Croatia

We visited the training school in Dakovo on a 35 degree day, albeit at 9.30 in the morning. The guide was currently showing a small group of tourists through the facility and we were permitted to wander at leisure until we could join the tour. There was an interpreter for the English and the tour was very interesting and informal. Afterwards, the guide answere my questions and was very helpful. The horses were magnificent and well cared for. It was great to see young members of the local pony club grooming and washing the stallions who were very well behaved.
Afterwards, we drove to the breeding farm. By this time, in the early afternoon, the temperature had risen considerably. We were greeted by a friendly staff member who showed us through the stables and then directed us to where the weaklings were in a large enclosure. We then observed the mares grazing happily in a large pasture on the hill.
It was a very pleasant experience and all the more enjoyable for the friendly staff and informal atmosphere .
I would suggest you telephone ahead to confirm the tour times.
