Mediterranean and Karst Slovenia

While the Mediterranean towns of Piran, Izola and Koper entice visitors with their medieval town centres, Portorož invites them with its holiday attractions. Salt harvesters can be seen hard at work on the Sečovlje Salt Pans, and the Karst with Postojna Cave, Škocjan Caves and Vilenica cave boasts the most stunning underground worlds on the planet. This region is also home to the noble Lipizzaner horse. The land of vine-rich hills of Goriška Brda is famous for its enticing high-quality aromatic wine, and you can taste it at tourist farms and in wineries. With its myriad of exciting tastes and adventures, the Vipava Valley has also been recommended by the prestigious Lonely Planet, the travel guidebook giant.


Highlights of Mediterranean and Karst Slovenia: 

Portorož and Piran are surrounded by salt pans on both sides. The high value of the famed salt enabled the rise of picturesque Piran in medieval times. In today’s cosmopolitan Portorož salt makes up a big part of the range of wellness services offered, which is regarded as one of the most comprehensive in Europe. 

Izola, the small seaside town grew on a former island. Even today it reflects the close bond its people have with the sea. Izola beckons: walk along its charming streets or get in on some fun water activities on one of the beaches here. The Strunjan cliff is the right place to experience pristine nature, whereas the verdant cultivated hinterland is well known for its exquisite grapes and olives

Brda is the sunny and sweet part of Slovenia, a region of invigorating moments! Kick back and relax with a glass of lovely regional wine and get ready for a culinary extravaganza as you attend the traditional festivals, wander through romantic villages or roam amongst the vineyards, olive groves and orchards.
