Coastbusters: Slovenian Coast Day Trip from Ljubljana Jul 27, 2016
I really enjoyed my day trip to the Slovenian Coast. Our guide was very knowledgable and we learnt a lot about coastal Slovenia and the country in general. It was also interesting seeing the difference in vegetation and architecture between the coast and the capitol city.
Our first stop after leaving Ljubljana was Socerb Castle, which gives you a great panoramic, probably not the most scenic you've ever seen but still useful, view of the coast line. This helps you get situated as you can see the Slovenian coastal towns as well as Italy (Trieste and Monfalcone) on the right and Croatia to the left. Our next destination was the Holy Trinity Church in Hrastovlje, which is probably not my most favourite church in the world but still worth visiting for the frescos depicting the Danse Macabre as they date back to the Middle Ages. Following this we visited the Sečovlje Salina Nature Park, which was quite interesting as we got to see how salt gets made and we also got to visit the small museum. The longest and my favourite stay was in Piran where we had a guided tour of the main sights and some free time (I think it was between 1 and 2 hours). I liked that we had a guided tour so we already knew where what was and had some free time so I could enjoy the beach and a wander around town. The final stop was in Koper where we had another guided tour of the town and we got to taste some Slovenian olive oil. Overall, I can only recommend this day trip.
