In the shelter of the Mediterranean greenness, in the utmost northern part of the Mediterranean Sea, the region Primorska welcomes you. The attraction of the Istrian hills, the sea side, the saltworks, the Karst and stony villages has been celebrated in verse by many posts. Piran, Izola and Koper are three ancient coastal towns, each revealing the lives and the spirit of past centuries in its own way.

Every kilometer of the Slovene coast is a new surprise. Here is a natural reserve with a rich fund of marl and sandstone and the unique, eighty-meter Strunjan cliff, the highest flysch wall on the Adriatic coast. Here are the Sečovlje saltworks, first mentioned in the 13th century, and the nearby is a sanctuary for more than 150 bird species. Here the towns of Piran, Izola, and Koper draw visitors with their medieval cores, while Portorož, though mentioned as early as 1251, offers numerous modern hotels with congress halls, a fully equipped marina, a sport airport, thermal baths, a casino, and a varied offer of summer cultural, entertainment, and sport events.
