In the completely deserted Slapnik you will ask yourselves who were these people, how they lived, why they left and where to. Namely, after World War II most of the villagers emigrated to the Koper littoral region as well as to Argentina and other places around the globe. Slapnik is accessible from the road Vrhovlje-Korada, preferably on foot. Although in deteriorating state, the village is full of interesting motifs and magnificent stone-cutting details that remind a visitor of a lively past. Slapnik awaits better times and represents one of the most beautiful motifs for photographers and painters.

The only entirely abandoned village in Brda, once a village of well-off farmers which is obvious from 30, 31 Church of St. Andreas beautiful architectural details, is today left to decay.
