"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.
- Pros:small, colorful, usually inexpensive,
- Cons:no beaches really.
- In a nutshell:definite must see for the simple beauty of it.
You can easily take a tour/ride on one of the two boats offered. different trips will take you to different places... more travel advice
