Natural Feature
“The reserve is the biggest wetland on the coastline. In the northern part of the reserve called Lera, people harvest salt using a 700 year old method – they use wooden tools and look after the so-called petola, the base of the salt pans that functions as a bio filter. That ensures that the salt doesn’t mix with silt from the sea, and allows it to remain white and clean. The quality of the salt and salt flower, a very thin, topmost layer in the ponds is famous and cherished all over the world. Meanwhile, the abandoned southern part of the reserve called Fontanigge features many unique sights – birds, vast fields of halophytes and over 100 abandoned and demolished buildings that were once used by workers in the salt industry, which contribute to the charm of the Sečovlje salt pans. The reserve became a habitat for various animals and plants. Sečovlje saltpans are interesting in all seasons.”

“The most beautiful place of slovenian coast! During Strunjan and Izola is the longest part of the natural sea shore with us and is protected as a regional park. Have described a circular route that is suitable for all seasons, we will look at all the main attractions of the park from different perspectives. Put us untouched coastline, high flysch cliffs, and (in some places) in the summertime quite "society".”
