Visit the Secovlje Salt PansSalt production has been a very important industry for the people of Piran since the ancient times, and they say that the town grew because of salt. Some 8km from Piran, the Secovlje salt pans are extensive fields where salt is produced still using the traditional methods so as to preserve cultural heritage. Thier salt contains many minerals and microelements which are essential to the human body. The salt of Piran is an absolute must souvenir to bring home! Entry fee to the Secovlje Selina Nature Park is €5. Apart from the salt pans, there is a salt museum, an exhibition and sales centre, and a pub where traditional salt-pan dishes can be savoured. Renting a car or a bike is the most convenient way to reach.Festivals in PiranSalt Making Festival in AprilPiran Summer Festival in July-AugustTartini Festival of Chamber Music in August-SeptemberGetting to PiranFlights from New Delhi or Mumbai via Amsterdam, Vienna, Frankfurt, Paris, or Zurich, and then an onward flight to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.
