Since 1986, this gathering has been organised by the Slovenian Writers´ Association annually every first week in September from Wednesday till Sunday. The guests are accommodated at Lipica, a world-famous stud farm, and cradle of the white Lipizzaner horses in the heart of the Karst region. One hour's drive from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, or 20 minutes from Trieste, it represents the crossroad between the Central Europe, South-East Europe and the Mediterranean basin. Over 100 authors, editors, publishers, translators, journalists and others participate in the Vilenica festival. The organisers' ambition is to develop the festival into a focal point of literary information, presentation and learning about Central European authors and their literary production.
