Portorose (Portoroz) is the main Slovenian sea resort; it has been the sea in fact, together with the Mediterranean climate and salt-works, to make of it a tourist destination adapted to all seasons. The natural healing factors, like the mud from the salt-works and the sea water, were in fact used, according to the tradition, already by the roman soldiers and in XIIth century by the Benedictines of the monastery of S. Lorenz. The thermal station began to develop in 1885 when it was constructed a small hotel and a building in which talassoterapia was practiced. Today the “Bay of Roses” is the most renowned tourist locality of the Slovenian coast, thanks to the elevated quality of the hotel offer, to the rich cultural and congressional activities and to the varied possibilities of entertainment, the first being the Casino.
Portorose is a well known Slovenian tourist resort on the Adriatic coast, famous for its sunny position in the bay of Piran, which is protected from wind amidst subtropical gardens, olive groves and vineyards. The Portorose Riviera attracts many guests for its mild climate, sandy and rocky beaches, natural medicine remedies and long-standing tourist tradition.
Portorose is the starting point for a variety of trips: one can leisurely walk to the medieval town Piran, the birthplace of the violinist Giuseppe Tartini, or take a half-day trip to the world famous underground caves of Postojna in the Karst region, or to the original stable of the Lipizzaner horses; take a whole-day trip to lake Bled, the Alpine resort with an island in the middle of its lake.
Portorose is also renowned as a congress site with high-quality congress facilities. Portorose is now known for many high class hotels, spas, live casino, and a marina.
