Slovenia

Visit Piran & Postojna Cave

Picturesque Piran, sitting pretty at the tip of a narrow peninsula, is everyone’s favourite town on the Slovenian coast.

Its Old Town is a gem of Venetian Gothic architecture. The Piran Salt Pans are among those rare salt pans in the world where salt is produced using centuries-old processes, involving entirely natural crystallisation, working by hand and employing tools and procedures used by our ancestors.

The Postojna cave is probably the most known cave in the world.

The Postojna cave is probably the most known cave in the world. It was first discovered in the 17th century and is open for visitors for almost 200 years. The caves are also home to the endemic olm (Proteus anguinus), the largest trogloditic amphibian in the world, or as it is locally known the “Human fish”. Inside Postojna cave you’ll also be able to see “The Concert Hall”, known for its exceptional acoustics. Symphony orchestras, octets, and a variety of soloists perform here.
