This beautiful resort offers a mild climate, fashionable
hotels and modern tourist attractions. Guests can choose
from a wide range of health and leisure activities,
including two casinos, a marina and a beautiful sandy
beach, whilst the flourishing parks and rose beds ensure
that the town lives up to its name of the 'Port of Roses'.
This is a heaven for adventurous spirits with a huge variety of exciting activities to suit every taste. The coastal areas offer an endless
choice of watersports, including sailing, windsurfing, diving and swimming or a refreshing dip in the spring and mud baths in the resort
of Portoroz. And if you tire of the beach and its attractions, the beautiful lakes and mountain regions offer horseback riding, river rafting,
kayaking, fishing, hunting, hiking and for the more courageous, a chance to visit the subterranean world of mysterious caves.
And the enjoyment doesn't end when night falls. There are musical concerts of all kinds, folklore parties, pop entertainment and many
carnivals celebrating the different ancient traditions of this magical land. Laughter and music spills out from the inviting bars and cafes
and dancing on the streets often carries on late into the night. There are casinos in Portoroz, Bled and some of the larger towns.
Food and Drinks
Slovenian cuisine is greatly influenced by its neighbor's taste in food and sausages, strudels, risottos and ravioli are widely available
together with a staggering choice of more than 1200 national dishes. A real Slovenian treat is 'potica', a cake prepared with the widest
variety of sweet or savoury fillings or the delicious loaves of bread which vary from region to region. There are also many interesting
fish and meat dishes for you to indulge. And to please your taste buds even further, there are some truly outstanding strong red, fruity
white and rose wines which compare favourably to the rest of the world and are excellent value for money.
The monetary unit in Slovenia is the Euro and there are approx. 1.17 Euros to £1.00 GBP (Apr 2017). Foreign currency can be
exchanged at the airports, banks, exchange bureaus, post offices and hotels with cash machines available in all larger cities and the
more important tourist areas.
