This relaxing day trip is a fantastic quick and dirty introduction to Slovenia’s coastal area. We’ll travel from Ljubljana to Koper, which is, like most places, a very short drive away. The countryside changes rapidly as you enter the southern part of the country though the picturesque Karst. After the port town of Koper, it’s time for some unforgettable views of the breath-taking landscape which only the Marezige viewpoint can offer.

Our journey then continues to the sublimely charming villages of Šmarje and Krkavče, both culturally very important places in the region. Next on the list are the Sečovlje Salt Pans, the northernmost Mediterranean saltworks and one of the few still producing salt in a traditional way. It’s also a wetland of international significance and a breeding ground for indigenous water bird species. Our lunch break will be in the unbelievably cute coastal town of Piran, followed by a walking tour of this amazing seaside gem. Perched at the tip of a narrow peninsula, this gorgeous town is a superbly preserved example of Venetian Gothic architecture and the narrow streets winding around its seafront main square have a special Adriatic vibe.

The day trip to Slovenian Istria will be marked by a relaxed pace, plenty of free time, and a list of very impressive sights. Breathe in the salty sea air, have a glass of famous Slovenian wine, and learn about the Istrian soul and ageless character!
