Aerial view of Piran, coastal town in Slovenia
Sunset at the Solkan Bridge in Slovenia
A travel destination could not be more diverse than Littoral ("Primorska" in Slovene): in the north the Julian Alps and the Soča Valley, in the south the Mediterranean coast - and barely two hours apart. On the journey, one highlight chases the next: from turquoise-blue rivers, deep gorges and steep rock faces to picturesque wine terraces, historic salt pans and a unique southern flair on the Mediterranean coast.

The Mediterranean Coast of Slovenia
The Slovenian part of the Adriatic coast may not be all that long with its 47 kilometres, but in terms of beauty it can certainly keep up with its neighbouring countries. The five towns of Koper, Izola, Piran, Portorož and Ankaran should be mentioned in this context.
As close as they are to each other, they seem to be very different.
While Piran, for example, has a beautiful, historic old town with an authentic fishing harbour, Portorož is firmly in the hands of tourists. Casino visitors cavort there alongside yacht owners and bathers. Portorož has the only sandy beach on the Slovenian coast. Koper, on the other hand, has made a name for itself as Slovenia's only seaport, while Ankaran is a true paradise for divers.
What all towns have in common are well-developed paths along the coast. Cyclists and inline skaters in particular will have a great time here, whizzing along the tarmac paths with the best views.
