The Mediterranean part of Slovenia is called Primorska. The dances from this region are soft and cannot hide their bourgeois origin. This is shown by light, elegant movements, distinguishing these dance forms from those appearing in other Slovenian regions.

The costume lost its typical regional characteristics long ago. The vicinity of Trieste and Gorizia has offered a more modern, bourgeois and uniform type of dressing. People from this part have used most widely spread musical instruments. At the transition into the 20th century various wind instrument bands accompanied the musicians at bigger village festivities.
