Slovenian Littoral in Slovenia

The Slovenian Littoral ( ; ; ) is a historical region of Sloveniamarker. Its name recalls the historical Habsburg crown land of the Austrian Littoral, of which the Slovenian Littoral was a part.

The region comprises two traditional provinces: Goriška and Slovenian Istriamarker. During the period of Austrian rule, the region was known as the Austrian Littoral, and was divided into Istriamarker, the Imperial Free City of Triestemarker, and the autonomous Crown Lands of Gorizia and Gradisca.

In 1918, the whole area was occupied by the Italian army; in 1920, Italy annexed it, calling it the "Julian March". After World War II, the area was split between Yugoslavia, which got the majority of the region, and Italymarker, which kept the urban centres of Triestemarker and Goriziamarker. As a result, new urban centres on the Slovenian part of the border developed; today, the main urban centers of the Slovene Littoral are Kopermarker and the Nova Goricamarker - Šempeter conurbation.

After Ljubljanamarker, the Slovene Littoral is the most developed and economically prosperous part of Slovenia. The Primorska region is a bilingual region where both Slovene and Italian can be used in education, legal and administrative environments.
