In prehistoric times, the Karst man had already found his soul mate in the Karst Region. The symbiosis between man and Karst has shaped the modesty, strength and perseverance of the local character. The soul of a Karst man is as vast as the region’s diversity. Just as you need time to explore the diverse Karst Region, you should not be in a hurry when getting to know the local people. Only when you feel their genuine hospitality, can you truly become a part of the Karst.
