Portoroz, is a coastal town in southwestern Slovenia, an important commercial, business, exhibition, and congress center. It has lively and relaxed atmosphere. Sea, wind, salt, Mediterranean aromas, palm trees, roses and evergreens, relaxation, fun and friendliness are the words that best describe the city. The interplay of different cultures and music, natural setting, gastronomic delights, and chequered history make an atmosphere that makes us put our daily worries aside.
Portoroz is closely connected to nearby Piran, a small medieval town whose fame and fortune come from one of the largest saltpans in this part of the world. Today mostly abandoned, the saltpans now provide shelter to numerous bird species to nest or stop during southbound migration. It is the saltpans and their natural elements—salt, brine, and fan go mud—that spurred the development of tourism in Portoroz. When healing properties of these natural elements were discovered as early as the 19th century, Portoroz got its first hotels and thermal baths. Today Portoroz is popular place to work, relax and have fun. After all, Portoroz boasts a large number of comfortable hotels with modern pools, a wide range of restaurants with different varieties of cuisine, offering a wide range of local delicacies, not to mention superb wines.
The town is also a well-known convention center. Numerous seminar and convention halls, some of which can accommodate up to 1500 people at a time, play host to prominent local and international meetings and events.
