Portorož Travel Guide


Portorož is the most popular of Slovenia's seaside resorts. The name—Port of Roses—recalls the time, a hundred years ago, when it was an exclusive haunt for Austro-Hungarian aristocrats.

Here you'll find chockablock hotels, restaurants, bars, casinos, and nightclubs—all of the things you associate with a modern package-vacation destination.

Portorož is difficult to grasp at first. The central area is small, although hotels and resorts spread out in all directions along the coast and the surrounding hills.
