We will start our march across large and especially long Primorska at the seaside, as the name of the region requires. With a short, 46 kilometers long coast, Slovenian region Primorska indents between infinitely longer coasts of the neighboring countries, Italy and Croatia, which are, despite its length, both disturbed by the Slovenian coast. For us, it?s a precious window to the world, also because of the fact, that the Adriatic Sea reaches its maximum length into a continent in Slovenia, so we will have to fight here in order to defend our belongings.
Weather in Slovenia is not as simple as you might think considering the fact that Slovenia isn?t a big country. That is why I?m going to inform you about some aspects of weather that might help you while traveling. First of all, mostly because of landscape variety, weather is different in different landscapes of Slovenia, which means that seaside has different climate than only 30 km distant Karst. And of course, Karst has different climate that 60 km distant Ljubljana. And so on. So I will describe each climate separately.
The first record of viticulture in Slovenia is from 5th century BC. The viticulture has been present through the Middle Age, Austro-Hungarian Empire and also through Yugoslavia (despite the fact that Slovenia had a strong competition in the low cost wines from southern countries of Yugoslavia, especially Macedonia). The viticulture is still present in Slovenia and is getting more and more important for Slovenian economy and interesting for tourists as well.
