Izola

Izola is a lively tourist town on the Slovenian coast. Special architecture of the ancient town core demonstrates a rich history of a town which was once an island. Fishing tradition is still present in Izola’s modern tourist offer and culinary specifics.

The ancient part of the town is located on an island which was inhabited already in the first century A.D. and later connected to the coast by a stone bridge. It was surrounded by town walls which were demolished in the beginning of the 19th century and the ruins were used to fill up the sea between the island and the coast. In early 13th century Izola declared independence and became a town with its own laws and authorities.

In the surrounding countryside, you can taste local delicacies, olive oil, and local wines.
