Based on the Decision on determining public parking areas in the Idrija Municipality on which parking is charged, parking in the Lajšt Natural Swimming Area every Saturday, Sunday or holiday between 0:00 and 24.00 from 1 July to 31 August 2022 will be pay-per-hour.
In the Lajšt parking area, 3 small parking lots are available for the visitors. During the week, parking there is free of charge, while every Saturday, Sunday and holiday from 1 July to 31 August 2022 parking is charged 3 €/hour for every initiated hour. Payment for parking is obligatory for every powered vehicle.
You can pay for parking on a parking machine (card or coins; no fee) located at Bar Lajšt or through the EasyPark app or SMS (the app has a fee).
Payment with the EasyPark parking app
Here is a short VIDEO tutorial on how the app functions
There are two possibilities of paying for the parking through the EasyPark parking system (https://easypark.si/sl):
- EasyPark: You have to download the app to your phone and register. You can do this if you follow this LINK. Once you park your vehicle, the phone will automatically locate the area where you have parked. You can also manually locate your parking by typing the parking area code in the app (in our case, it is 1101) or the name of the parking (“Naravno kopališče Lajšt”). Set the time you wish to park there and click on “START parking”. 10 minutes before your parking expires, the app will send you a reminder and you will be able to remotely renew parking. When you wish to end parking, you must do so by clicking on “STOP parkign”. The app will effectuate payment at the end of your parking time. No pre-payment is needed. The app will require you to provide your credit card details (Mastercard, Visa, Diners, Amex) or PayPal only once. When your parking ends, you will receive an e-mail with the invoice, which you can also download from this webpage.
- SMS: By sending an SMS message, you will pay for the parking through your mobile service provider *. The Lajšt Natural Swimming Area parking code is 1101. Send: PARKING AREA CODE [space] complete REGISTRATION NUMBER [space] #TIME OF PARKING to +386 31 20 90 20.
IMPORTANT: The time of parking begins when you receive an SMS confirmation from your service provider.
10 minutes before your parking expires, you will receive an SMS reminder that your parking is about to expire. By answering “YES”, you will remotely renew parking for one hour. Make sure to answer the SMS in time as it has a time limitation. If you are late answering the SMS, you must begin the process of paying for parking anew. If you do not wish to renew parking, do not answer to the reminder.
* Paying for parking is possible with every service provider except for Hofer
User help is available via phone at +386 5 88 88 023 (Monday through Saturday between 8 AM and 8 PM) or via e-mail at: email@example.com.
