Slovenia, the very first country to be declared a Green Destination, lies in the heart of Europe, where the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Karst and the Pannonian Plain meet. In one of these worlds, the Mediterranean seaside, there is the lush green land of Istria. A land that enchants with its exceptional combination of attractions from the Roman, Medieval and Venetian era, set against a backdrop of stunning natural landscapes – from the green hillsides to the clear blue sea of the Adriatic coast.

There is the unique cliff in Strunjan, the highest elevation on the Adriatic coast, reaching 80 meters above the sea level. The Škocjanski zatok Nature Reserve is a safe haven for many animal and plant species, and especially birds, since there are as many as 245 different species on less than 122 hectares of land. Nearly just as many birds found their home in the salt pans of Sečovlje, where the Adriatic sea-salt is still harvested the old fashioned way. The three coastal towns, Izola, Piran and Koper, attract visitors with their medieval appearance.

And there, in the middle of the 46-kilometre coast, lies a small seaside town with a rich history, marked by fishing and waves. Izola was once an island in the Adriatic Sea and is still uniquely bound to the sea and the fishing traditions. The town is characterized by various beaches, orange wine, water sports and traditional events celebrating the gifts from the surrounding lands. Come to Izola for an authentic experience of the Mediterranean!

Vila Raineri Pizzeria and Canteen, pizzeria with strong tradition

The Vila Raineri Pizzeria and Canteen is located in a villa with a very special history. At the end of the 19th century, it was the home of the Renner von Szatmary counts who changed their name into Raineri during the time of Mussolini’s government. In the 20th century, it became one of the first pizzerias in the Slovenian Istria, together with a hotel located on the first floor. The Vila Raineri Pizzeria and Canteen is located just 200 metres from the sea, along Hotel Delfin, and is open all year round. Guests can also visit the Pergola Restaurant which is also part of the hotel. The villa was renovated three years ago and now offers seating on a cozy terrace even in bad weather. Daša Ždrnja, Sales Manager of Hotel Delfin, told us more about the pizzeria and the canteen.
