Vrhpolje at Vipava

The field at Vrhpolje was in the year 394 a battlefield where the Roman emperor Theodosius and rebel Eugenius clashed. The battle is called The Battle of the Frigidus. Nature was on the side of Theodosius as a fierce wind - "burja" or bora - blew along the valley and helped Theodosius.
