*Lenght of coastline of the Republic Slovenia: 43,157 m (~ 43 km).

*The methodology of the measuring the length of the Slovene coast within the territorial control of the Republic of Slovenia ( based on the Yugoslav official maps as in June 1991).


The measurement was two times in year 2004 and again in year 2006. The starting point was at Lazaret, Zaliv svetega Jerneja (λ 45,594716° , φ : 13,722959°), and the ending point was on the right bank of Dragonja River ( λ 45,476465° , φ : 13,581814°). The upper line of the tide was counted.

The piers and the channels were excludes from the measurement and as well the “coast” of the former sea bay Škocjanski zatok which is nowadays a brackish water moorland. Same are excluded the salt evaporation ponds at Strunjan and Sečovlje.

The measurement was with two precise GPS receivers and due the possible errors repeated after two years with the same method.

The Slovenian coast is a part of the Mediterranean which reaches deepest into Central Europe here.

The longest river of Slovenian Istria is Dragonja River.

The largest towns are Koper, Izola and Piran.
