From Koper to Stancija Zavod

In Koper take the exit Pula/Pola. Take care: first you see the exit Kopar Center, a few hundred meters further the exit Pula/Pola. The exit is short! (see inserted map).

Drive about 15 km over a windy road to the Croatian border. After the border drive uphill and drive direction Pula (blue/green signs). Enter the main road (Istarska Ypsilon / A9). After 15 km pass the river Mirna.

Pass by the petrol station. (Perhaps a good idea to fill up, petrol is cheaper in Croatia). Take the exit Baderna, direction Poreč/Pazin. (toll 20 Kuna or 2.70 Euro). At the end of the exit turn left to Pazin. (Take care: the view on this point is limited).

Drive 7.4 km and turn right at Konoba Na Kapeli towards Kringa. Drive 3.8 km to Kringa. At the church follow the road sharp right. After 250 meters left direction Sv. Petar u Šumi/Brinjani/Faturi. After 50 m follow Brinjani. From there follow the signs "St Zavod". After the the last sign it is still another kilometer on the macadam road.

With navigation system

With a navigation system you will for sure be able to find Kringa. For the last part (a bit more than a kilometer) you will need the route description.

Toll roads in Slovenia

The highways in Slovenia are tollroads. Purchase of a vignette is obligatory for use of a toll road with a vehicle whose permissible maximum weight does not exceed 3,500 kg.

Further information you find on the website of DARS (the Slovenian highway operator). You can download the leaflet here (7.5 mB).

Driving from Italy, through Slovenia to Istria you have to pass a small piece of highway (8 km) from the Italian border to Koper. For such a small distance the vignette is expensive. However DO BUY THE VIGNETTE! Fines are high and controls frequent.

There is a bypass via a local road which is 10 minutes longer. Download here the description with photographs. Courtesy of
