The Slovenian Riviera (Slovenska obala) is a popular seaside tourist destination, and has been since the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when it was then referred to as the `Austrian Riviera`. It consists of a mere 29 miles of coastline on the Gulf of Trieste, sandwiched between Italy and Croatia. The towns on the Slovenian Riviera, such as Koper, Piran, Portorož, Strunjan, Izola, and Ankaran, all have considerable Italian influence, as the area was ruled by Italy for three decades in the 20th century. Perhaps the most popular beach in the country is Portorož Beach, one of the few sandy ones along the coast. Whether you`re looking for sun and sand, sightseeing, or yachting, the towns of the Slovenian Riviera have everything you`re looking for, and many points of interest you never realized you needed to see.
