  • Franciscan Monastery Kostanjevica in Nova Gorica is for me - living in town - and many other locals one of the most beloved place; the religious poeple love it because of the services, mass, friendly and widehearted Franciscans which lead the Monastery. Located on the small hill above Nova Gorica and in between two towns - on the other side is Gorizia (Italy) is facing another arhitectural and historical gem, a castle of Gorizia (castello di Gorizia). In the Monastery is a beautiful baroque church, free to visit and is a must see, a breathtaking library with some more than hundred years old books and the catacombs of last members of the Burbons, french royal family. You have to ring the bell at the door of the Monastery near the entrance to the church. The Monastery is also loved for the one who like to relax, is a perfect place for a stroll from Nova Gorica and it offers super romantic sunsets. There are many more nice things to say about the Monastery but meybe is the best to visit it. You can go up by foot from center Nova Gorica uphill is app. 30 minut of light walk.
  • Beautiful place and sanctuary with the crypts of last members of Bourbon family. There is awesome old library with ancient books and a garden with many bourbon roses which blossom in month of May.
