Visited the two other main towns along the Slovenian coast, Isola & Piran. Both nice fishing/boating towns similar to Fremantle. No real beaches to swim though, although they make do by making the water accessible with steps & ladders.
(Swimming beach at Koper)
Both towns have Venetian heritage, so the architecture is similar.
Piran was particularly pretty, with pastel coloured buildings, although unusual because tourists can't park their car in the centre of town.You need to leave your car in a public car park at the top of the hill & get a shuttle bus into the centre. Makes it difficult if you have accommodation in town!

Crossed the border back into Croatia. Made our way to Opatija on the coast in Northern Croatia. Staying in an old villa, room not much to brag about and hundreds of steps down the the centre of town, but wonderful view from our room across the Adriatic;
Summary of Slovenia;
- Beautiful country with heaps to offer including mountains, lakes, forrests, cave systems, coastline and historical cities.
- Easy to travel around-wide, clear roads.
