Introducing Nova Gorica

Nova Gorica is a university city straddling the Italian border, with tree-lined boulevards and a couple of lovely parks and gardens. Slovenian, Venetian and Austrian influences can be felt everywhere in the hinterland. It also straddles two important wine-growing areas: Goriška Brda to the northwest and the wide Vipava Valley to the southeast, and is a decent springboard for the Soča Valley, and the beautiful Karst region leading to the coast.

Nova Gorica is an unusually long town, running about 5km from crossing with Italy at Rožna Dolina (Casa Rosa) in the south to Solkan in the north. The bus station is in the centre of town at Kidričeva ulica 22. The train station is at Kolodvorska ulica 6, about 1.5km to the west.
