Though the Slovenian coastline measures only 47 kilometres, it holds many interesting sites. Ankaran is a small seaside town right near the border with Italy. It is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves; today it is primarily a tourist destination. Its greatest attractions are the former Benedictine monastery, the only Slovenian salt meadow and a dune made out of shells, which is a rarity in Europe.
Around 1.7 million people visit the Slovenian mountains each year. The mountains are traversed by over 10 000 km of hiking trails and count about 180 Alpine huts, bivouacs and shelters. Above the central part of the Soča Valley lies Krn, the tallest mountain of the Krn range, boasting Slovenia’s largest high-altitude lake.
The world-renowned Slovenian designer Oskar Kogoj is celebrating the 60th anniversary of his creative work this year. His masterpieces are kept in more than a hundred museums at home and abroad. They reflect nature, the spiritual messages of the ancient civilisations and the Slovenian cultural heritage.
Slovenia is among the most bio-diverse countries in the EU and features a very diverse landscape. 13% of its territory falls under various levels of protection. Its protected areas include three regional parks, among them the Notranjska park, where biologist Jošt Stergaršek works.
The Bohinj area, situated in the Triglav National Park, has been the biggest Alpine dairy centre in Slovenia for centuries. As recently as in the mid-twentieth century, almost 50 living mountain pastures could be found here, whereas today there are only half as many left. Laz is one of the two mountain pastures in Bohinj, where the Alpine dairy farming tradition never died out.
