A tourist destination in the northern Adriatic since ancient times, Malinska is one of Krk’s gems. Due to the mild Mediterranean climate it is suitable for holidays throughout the year, and because of the shallow sea and the weak sea currents the sea is extremely warm (25˚C). The beautiful pebble and sandy beaches bathed with lush vegetation offer total enjoyment and are a real haven for relaxation. The highly developed tourist infrastructure offers a great selection of hotels, apartments and private accommodation, as well as a multitude of sports. Its rich historical and religious heritage with valuable exhibits is preserved in the museum of the monastery Sv. Marija Magdalena in Porto.
Ajdovščina lies at the heart of the Vipava Valley. Through the centuries it has grown on the foundations of an ancient settlement to Roman Castra and on to become a modern city pleasant for its citizens and attractive for visitors. Among all the Slovene places descended from Roman cities, only Ajdovščina has preserved the almost completely unbroken wall with fourteen towers of Roman Castra. The city is also enriched by the cultural heritage of the painter and graphic artist Veno Pilon and the Baroque painter, locally born Anton Cebej.
Neum is the only town to be situated along Bosnia and Herzegovina’s 20 km of coastline, therefore country’s only access to the Adriatic Sea. And the Adriatic is gorgeous here! The city is relatively new, built on the steep slopes of the Neum bay about 50 years ago. It’s focused on tourism, which is no surprise – the sea in the bay is wonderfully quiet, since the gulf is closed and protected by the Pelješac peninsula. Here you can enjoy scuba diving, parasailing, boat rentals and jet skis, right after that we recommend you some homgrown high-quality fish and shells in local restaurants.
