A trip to Nova Gorica takes you to the land between the Alps and the sea.
Step off the beaten path and head to Šmartno and Sveta Gora (Holy Mountain). Step out of the city life by going to Postojna Cave and Cerknica Lake. Step out of Nova Gorica to go to Postojna and see Predjama Castle, which is approximately 1 hour away. There's much more to do: learn about winemaking at Lepa Vida Boutique Winery, head outdoors with Magma X, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, and snap pictures at Solkan Bridge.
