Strunjan Landscape Park
The Strunjan Peninsula is strewn thick with hidden gems of natural and cultural heritage. A healthy environment, authentic traditions, marvellous views and the diversity of the fauna and flora offer countless possibilities for actively enjoying the outdoor life. The unique alliance between sea, coast and hinterland, and the heritage expressive in the local people make Landscape Park Strunjan a precious piece of the Adriatic coast.
