Nova Gorica, a small town at the border with Italy, has been the heart of the sunny Goriška region for almost six decades. It has grown after the World War II as a substitute town for Gorizia, which remained on the other side of the border. It is a town with a mild climate, green and blooming all year round, young, lively and friendly to the local people and visitors from all over the world. As a unique example in Europe, the two towns are located at the border with no border crossings and living in a greater co-existence at all levels. Nova Gorica is a town of roses. This is an attractive town for entertainment as in all seasons various venues, indoors or outdoors, offer a rich selection of events. Concerts, festivals, theatre performances, fairs, exhibitions and other cultural, culinary and ethnological events enrich the lives of locals and guests.
