Discover Sečovlje Salina Nature Park
Sečovlje Salina Nature Park spans about 750 ha along the Slovene/Croatian coast and is divided into two parts: the northern part is called Lera, where salt making is still taking place, and the southern part, titled Fontanigge and is located near Piran. However the basins where salt used to be made in the southern part are overgrown and blanketed in rough vegetation.
Around the area former salt houses are scattered which are a fine looking compliment to the whole ambient of the Nature park. Also at the southern part of the Nature park, there is a museum where you can check out how the practice of traditional salt making looked like, as well as read about the history of the Salina Nature Park and it’s salt making processes.
On the other hand, at Lera or the northern and active part of the salt pans you will be able to observe the salt making processes in the future months.
All in all, the Nature park, offers unique quirks and great scenery all around and is perfectly sized for a one day family adventure.
See you soon!
