      Ending of travel to Umag, it took two hours from Koper to Umag, nearly unbearable, it must be improved Somehow (I know it is Mainly Slovenia). The situation was similar in the reverse direction from HR to SLO (now in Croatia), I‘ve finally found another road Slovanian Toward the airport. The traffic jam was horrible.
