Access to the Park
SSNP has two land entrances. Lera is reached by a steep cobble paved road that branches off to the right at Seča from the highest point of the thoroughfare that links Lucija with the Sečovlje border crossing. At the end of the paved part of the road is a crossing (with Pick &Place building on the right); straight ahead from here, the main entrance to the Park can be seen at the bridge over the Jernej Channel. At the entrance with a gate, parking place is provided. Visitors are kindly requested to approach the administrative building by foot or bicycle, although access is allowed by motor vehicles as well.
The Museum of Salt-making, which is not operated more by the Maritime Museum Sergej Mašera Piran, is reached by the tarmac road, which branches off a few metres after the Sečovlje checkpoint to the right just before the bridge over the Dragonja River towards the Fontanigge area.
You are kindly advised to leave your vehicle at the gate opposite the pipeline over the Dragonja River. A ride from there on IS AT YOUR OWN RISK and is, as a rule, prohibited by SSNP's decree.
For the time being, no local public transport is available from Slovenian littoral towns to SSNP. From Lucija, the visitors can reach SSNP through marina, past the caravan site and by following the road leading along the Jernej Channel.
Occasionally, visitors are conveyed to SSNP by the »Solinarka« boat.
The two accesses from the sea (only for organised groups that begin their visits of SSNP at Piran or other ports) are:
• landing pier in the Giassi Channel (access to the Fontanigge and Museum of Salt-making areas),
• landing pier in the Grande Channel (Drnica; access to the Lera area).
