Nova Gorica

A trip to Nova Gorica takes you to the land between the Alps and the sea.
Get out of town with these interesting Nova Gorica side-trips: Štanjel Castle (in Štanjel) and Postojna (Postojna Cave, Tourist Information Centre - Galerija, &more). There's much more to do: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Reservoir Dogs brewery, get outside with Magma X, do a tasting at Lepa Vida Boutique Winery, and try your luck at Perla Casino.

Plan my Nova Gorica trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Budapest, Hungary to Nova Gorica is an approximately 5.5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of flight and car.
