Mediterranean & Karst Slovenia

If you're thinking about what to visit in Slovenia, consider adding the Mediterranean and Karst region to your travel list. It's a place where the Adriatic Sea is surrounded by stunning rocky landscapes. An authentic destination where searching for new experiences will bring you to the stables of Lipica’s horses, Piran’s salt pans, and Brda’s wineries. With its unique mix of Italian and Austrian influences, it's the destination for a perfect getaway. 

The Slovenian Adriatic coastline can be named 47 kilometers of pure beauty. Walk through the narrow streets of medieval Piran or visit charming Kopar, and you will want to come back. The Postojna cave is a symbol of the karst area. Explore its depths by riding in a 140-year-old unique tourist train. Who knows, you might even see an olm – endemic amphibian that lives only in a few places in the world. If you enjoy stories about knights, don’t skip the magnificent Predjama castle, which has found its place among the cliffs in the cave’s vicinity.

Everyone interested in cuisine should prepare the taste buds for fresh, organic ingredients. Mediterranean diet includes a lot of fish, mussels, and calamari, while the karst area loves recipes with turnip - Vipava jota, air-dried pork meat, and cespovi njoki (plum gnocchi). The best time to visit is from April to October, and while you pack, remember to leave some space to squeeze in a fig loaf or bottle of teran on the comeback – for some sweet aftertaste of your vacation in Slovenia.
