Understand[edit]

Ruled by Venice for five centuries then part of Italy between 1918 and 1947, the Italian influence is clearly visible in the coastal towns of this picturesque area. After the war, many autochthonous Italians were forced to leave but communities remain to this day.

Talk[edit]

Italian is an official language in many coastal towns and widely understood.

Stay safe[edit]

With the exception of Koper, Sezana and Nova Gorica all of the settlements are very small and crime is virtually non-existant. In all parts crime is low when compared to all neighbouring countries. Most young people will speak very good English and coastal areas are usually bilingual (Slovene and Italian).
