The settlement stretching along the Slovenian coast between Izola and Piran was formed in the valley of the river Roja, encompassing the salt pans and the nearby hills. This part of the coast was proclaimed a nature reserve in the 1990. It occupies a land area of 160 hectares. Besides the four kilometres of coast, which is unique among the whole of the Adriatic Sea, the typical flora and fauna of this region is well worth mentioning.
The estuary of the river Roja was turned into salt pans already by the middle ages. Today, alas, only a tiny fraction of these are still active. In the direct vicinity of the salt pans, one encounters Stjuža, a kind of a lagoon purported to have once been very rich with fish. /portoroz.si/
