The astonishing karst world, a landscape covered with vineyards, the sound of the waves, the elegance of white horses – allow the beauties of Mediterranean & Karst Slovenia to take your breath away.

World famous.

A train on the oldest cave railway in the world will take you among the stalagmites and stalactites of Postojna Cave. A trail with a bridge that is 50 m above the bed of an underground river will lead you to the underground canyon in the Škocjan Caves.


Mediterranean towns.

Discover the differences between the medieval towns of Piran and Koper. Meet the health resort tradition and the cosmopolitan coastal area of Portorož, and the fishing tradition of Izola. Go to Istria, the green outskirts of coastal towns.


Traditional salt pans.

Visit the Sečovlje Salt Pans which are among the oldest still operational salt pans in the world. Ride a bike to the Museum of Salt-making and relax in a wellness resort – outdoors, in the salt pans. 


Noble horses.

After seeing the oldest stable of white Lipizzaner horses in Lipica in the Karst, treat yourself to a show of the Classical Riding School, visit a museum, ride a horse around the region or take a carriage ride.


Enticing sweetness.

Taste the world-famous wines of Brda and the Vipava Valley. Take a ride through the lovely villages above vineyards, orchards and olive plantations. Taste the sweetness of the Brda cherries at the traditional spring festival.
