There's no real beaches in town but if you walk up to Saint George's church and then take the footpath that goes downhill at the back, you'll arrive at a nice pebble beach from where you can swim out.

  • Rock Climbing In Slovenia

    OK, you can really improvise here, but I suggest you don't do that a lot! There are a few people lost (for good) every year. They fall into small undetectable holes somewhere in the mountains never to be found again. Climbing is VERY popular in Slovenia, but beware of your capabilities. I am not one of "them", the climbers, too afraid of heights....
