Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
Hrastovlje Church of the Holy Trinity and Piran Minorite Monastery will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore and learn at Magical World of Shells Museum and Koper Regional Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Rakov Škocjan Landscape Park (in Rakek), Wine Tours & Tastings (in Vipava) and Cross Cave (in Grahovo). There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, kick back and relax at Portorož Beach, learn about winemaking at Vinakoper, and make a trip to Piazza Tito.
