Adriatic Coast - Karst Vacation Packages
Resorts, historic architecture and intricate geological formations decorate Slovenia’s Adriatic Coast. A nearby castle and network of stalagmite-studded caves add a mythical quality to the picturesque coastline of marinas and bays. Admire the red-tiled rooftops that sweep across the quaint, hilly settlements by the sea.
Among the most popular areas for visitors is Piran. Amble along the narrow alleyways and marvel at the surviving medieval architecture. See ramparts of varying eras scattered around the city. Visit the Piran Harbor and the spacious central square of Tartinijev Trg.
A little further south is Portorož, which is famous for its saltpans. Visit the town’s warehouses for a glimpse into the area’s industrial past. Relax on one of the few sandy stretches in the country at Portorož Beach. Stroll along the pier for views of the water and forested hills.
Izola juts out of the coastline and is distinctive for the tall church tower that rises above this former island. Enjoy seafood from a restaurant in the Izola Marina. A little further along the coast is Koper and the heritage Koper Cathedral in Tito Square.
Travel inland to reach Postojna and find Predjama Castle, which stands in a cave mouth and features a secret tunnel to the Postojna Caves. See the illuminated stalagmites on a fascinating train trip through the cave system.
Further north is the Sveta Gora (Holy Mountain) of Nova Gorica. Embrace adventure at the Nova Gorica Kayak Center.
Relish in the hot summers, which peak in July and August. Winters bring wet weather and occasional snow.
The Adriatic Coast spans the country’s seaside borders with Italy and Croatia. Arrive at Trieste – Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport and drive southwest for around 50 miles (80 kilometers) to reach the area.
