Nova Gorica, The City of Roses, as seen from the top of EDA Center.Nova Gorica, a small town at the border with Italy, has been the heart of the sunny Gorika 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. It is to say a younger sister of Gorizia with which it is writing a common future together. 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 as this noble flower can be seen everywhere.
