Active holiday at the Slovenian coast

Listen to this tale about love and salt sea air. The 46-kilometre long Slovenian coast boasts a myriad of small romantic towns. The medieval town of Piran is the most picturesque of these – a town that has blossomed due to salt production. Take a walk along the Sečovlje Salina Nature Park and taste the flower of salt. Did you know that the Sečovlje salt works are the northernmost salt works still operating in the Mediterranean, and one of the few salt works in the world where salt is produced following age-old instructions from the 14th century? Salty pleasures may be randomly exchanged with sweet ones and with wholesome bread you can soak up a rainbow of flavours – fish, olive oil and wine. Check three tourist packages which will take to the Istrian villages of Zazid, Puče and Dekani. Get to grips with life on a tourist farm and pedal your way between Piran and Dekani.
