"Golden Drum Festival" Portoroz by barbipez

Portoroz Travel Guide: 54 reviews and 99 photos

I was in Slovenia for a few days for work - the Golden Drum Advertising Festival - and it was beautiful. Piran and Portoroz are beautiful.

Portoroz - the "main drag" has the feel of a minature sized La Croisette in Cannes, FR and has some very nice hotels.

Piran is just bunched up on the little jut of a peninsula.

there is such a variety and mixture of architecture and this quaint, cosy feeling.

their currency - the SIT, slovenian tolar - was ODD to deal with, but luckily they're great with using Euros. i believe it's around 200 SIT per 1 EUR!!! something crazy like that.

just my first thoughts about the two towns before my mind forgets.
i didn't get to be much of a tourist since this was for work, but already am planning my own trip there!!!

just a bummer that there really isn't much of a beach. just an ocean that meets a concrete/rocky shoreline.
