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.
Do your shopping at Lisjak - Premium extra virgin olive oil from Slovenian Istria and Planet Koper. Step out of the city life by going to Portorož Beach and Sečovlje Salina Nature Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Portorož: Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan) and Lipica Stud Farm (in Lipica). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Tartini Square, engage your brain at Magical World of Shells Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. George's Church.
