Portorož

A resort town on the country's scenic Adriatic coastline, Portoroz offers many spas with all kinds of therapeutic treatments, many based on the brine and mud from the area's salt pans.
Venture out of the city with trips to Lipica Stud Farm (in Lipica) and Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan). There's much more to do: experience rural life at Fonda Fish Farm, don't miss a visit to Walls of Piran, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Anne's Friary, and find your balance on the water with Bananaway.

Plan my Portorož trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Ptuj to Portorož by car takes about 3 hours. Other options: do a combination of train and bus; or take a bus. Traveling from Ptuj in September, things will get somewhat warmer in Portorož: highs are around 28°C and lows about 17°C.
