New year with a view of the sea

Owing to its mild Mediterranean climate, the Slovenian coast is the place for a pleasant break in any season. Due to its developed year-round offer and vast possibilities for pampering and well-being, the coast is a very popular destination for December holidays and for the winter months when the sun can heat everything up fairly well and make a day more beautiful. A versatile, high-quality and rich choice of accommodation will satisfy any taste, and all major providers have prepared rich New Year’s Eve celebrations. Are you perhaps in a Mediterranean mood this winter?

You can do anything as would in summer, but perhaps save a jump into the sea for the summertime … You can take a walk along the seafront, go jogging on the beach, swim in swimming pools overlooking the sea or enjoy the health and wellness programmes and excellent culinary delights; you can discover the amiable seaside towns, go to the Salt Making Museum, take a trip from the coast to explore the inland Istria and Karst... check the offer and choose your December or winter break destination!

Perhaps you would like to spend your New Year’s Eve marked by roses at Kempinski Palace Hotel in Portorož? Did you know that Portorož, when translated from its Italian name Portorose, means a Port of Flowers or, more precisely, a Port of Roses and that this fall, Portorož became richer with a rose carrying the name of Portorož? It was planted upon the occasion of World Tourism Day at the Portorož flower garden and it was bred over the period of seven years especially for the town of Portorož at the place of Thomas Proll, a German rose breeder of the Kordes company – the variety carrying the name Portorož will be officially registered at the beginning of 2012 and will continue to decorate numerous gardens and parks in Portorož.

Numerous other providers in Portorož, Piran, Koper, Izola and Strunjan have also prepared their enticing Christmas-New Year offers for you – for various tastes and financial capabilities. You can celebrate New Year’s Eve in the surroundings of a hotel or you can visit the town squares and streets of agreeable coastal towns. There will be action everywhere!
