Nova Gorica — 7 nights

A trip to Nova Gorica takes you to the land between the Alps and the sea.
Get some historical perspective at Snežnik Castle and Štanjel Castle. Escape the urban bustle at Cross Cave and Divača Cave.

There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Vipolže Villa, enjoy breathtaking views from Gonjače Viewing Tower, snap pictures at Solkan Bridge, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Jewish Cemetery.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Nova Gorica driving holiday planner.
