its proximity to the Skocjan Caves. It is a bit of a mystery, then, that when you
have walked through the deserted train station, tried the (locked) door of the
tourist information shed and wandered aimlessly around the patch of grass in front,
that anyone ever finds the caves. A helpful barman at the only bar in town directed
us along a main road in the baking sun for a couple of kilometres until we reached
The caves run for 2.5km and include the largest cavern in Europe!! They are
impressive indeed and as a UNESCO protected site (and keen purveyor or postcards)no
photography is allowed so you will have to make do with the website link or visit
them yourself (we did manage to sneak a fews pics in at the end but only of the
boring bit Im afraid).
Continuing on we arrived in Koper, for our first view of the sea. Koper is a fairly
pretty town but we mainly used it as a base from which to visit Piran and rest a
bit. Travelling is tiring work I can tell you! Sometimes you have to recharge your
batteries before the next stunning sunset, perfect beach or medieval town.
Farewell to Slovenia then. A small country with a bit of everything except a decent
stretch of beach. For that we will need to move country again, this time to one
with 2000km of coastline, Croatia.
See you later.
