Postcards from the Slovenian Coast

Slovenia
Slovenian coast isn’t exactly famous. The Slovenian Riviera only measures 46.6 km, so a constantly rushing backpacker might as well overlook it. He might, but you shouldn’t. It’s quality not quantity that counts in travel, right?

I feel so weird trying to convince you to visit this little piece of northern Adriatic coast. Me?
I’m that odd chick who gets bored after a day on the beach, or, in the best-case scenario, she just sits and reads books, forgetting where she actually is.

So, why should you bother?
Because this tiny piece of land squatting between Italy and Croatia is diverse enough to keep you entertained.

You like picture-perfect coastal towns? No problem, checked. Piran is so cute it will hurt your eyes. The fishing port of Izola is not bad either, and the fancier resort of Portorož has the best gelato (looks like someone has been learning from their neighbors).

You like some nature? No problem, you can still find a quite wild beach, so close yet far from busy cafes of the more touristy parts of the coast.

And of course you like someone Mediterranean cuisine topped with a cup of good Italian coffee, right? I know you do.
Piran
A practical tip before I finally leave you alone with the images: there are so many connections between Ljubljana and the more industrial Koper that you won’t have any trouble with getting there and back. You can always try the local Slovenian carpooling website. It worked wonders for me on that route.
