What the Route 66 means to U.S., the road 409 means to Slovenians. Before the A1 motorway was built this was “The Road” most Slovenians used to travel to the coast for their summer vacation. Perhaps that’s why it grew so close to our hearts, but I suggest you take it as the A1 alternative simply because the road is well maintained, with nice scenery, and sparse traffic. It offers plenty of opportunities to switch to A1 in case you accidentally caught a glimpse of the clock.
you want to rest and relax before or after a long ride for a day, two, or more. Or maybe some day you will wish to come back with your friends or beloved one, or with your family…
On Slovenian coast there are many good restaurants but Prego restaurant is worth visiting due to domestic atmosphere and delicious food at reasonable prices. Placed by sea-beach you can enjoy the relaxation view.
When we talk about excellent food we need to mention Baladur restaurant. Food in small family inn surpasses many restaurants. If you choose to order “Tartare heat” or “Beef fillet on the lava stone”, you will be pleasantly surprised. And they also offer Mediterranean food and seafood.
