Photographer's Note

Izola is a bilingual municipality, with an Italian minority, located on the Slovenska Istra, an area locally known as Obala (the Coast).
The ancient part of the town is located on an island which was inhabited already in the first century A.D. and later connected to the coast by a stone bridge. It was surrounded by town walls which were demolished in the beginning of the 19th century and the ruins were used to fill up the sea between the island and the coast. In early 13th century Izola declared independence and became a town with its own laws and authorities.
