Slovenian Istria is cradled between the Karst Edge with its unusual overhanging walls and the Dragonja River Valley with its pools, meanders, and picturesque waterfalls. River Rižana and other streams also bring forth the richness of Istria's water life. The coast with flysch cliffs, which protect the land's salt-making heritage, a seashell dune, and a salt meadow, is also home to countless bird species. The most beautiful views open up from the blossoming hill peaks in the middle of Istria.
