Slovenia's largest lake can be found in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. Forested slopes and rocky peaks are reflected in the crystal clear water.

Today we will visit Portorož and Piran. First we will see what has changed at the beautiful nature exhibition Forma Viva. It's such a sculpture gallery under a blue sky. It is unbelievable that this project was created fifty years ago. Slovenians Jakob Savinšek and Janez Lenassi came up with the idea of a natural sculpture gallery as early as 1961.
The medieval town of Izola is such a Slovenian Venice. And even the town is really called that. You won't find gondolas here, but you will definitely find a peaceful atmosphere, narrow streets and ancient houses. And the connection with Italy? This is obvious, formerly inhabited by Italians.
In the last article about Ljubljana, we visited Metelkova Street and Dragon Bridge, so we continue to the center. We go along the river Lublanice down towards the square Prešernov trg.
