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.
Relax by the water at Portorož Beach and Strunjan Nature Reserve. Step out of the city life by going to Škocjan Caves and Sečovlje Salina Nature Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Portorož: Lepa Vida Boutique Winery (in Šempas), Predjama Castle (in Postojna) and Wine Tours & Tastings (in Vipava). There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, make a trip to Church of St. Maurus, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Anne's Friary, and admire the striking features of Praetorian Palace.
