Piran

— 3 nights
Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the exciting artwork at Nika's Tiny House, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. George's Church, then kick back and relax at Portorož Beach, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Strunjan Nature Reserve.
