    Above the compact town centre reigns the St. George Cathedral, which gives the city its special character. It is composed of three distinct constructions laid out in a row. From east to west they are: the church, the belltower and the baptistery. The Cathedral was probably built in the 12th Century, but no exact data in regard exists. The handsome...

    Portoroz was mentioned as the best Slovenian beach, and I was expecting something better. Of course it is developed, with hotels and restaurants everywhere, but the beach is poor.

    Portoroz Warnings and Dangers

    The "natural" beach of Portoroz is almost useless. Sun seekers must book a chair in a private artificial area by the sea, and swimmers must dive from it. The sea is calm, the temperature in the water is good, but beach, for us, is a different thing. From there we went to Lignano Sabbiadoro - a "real beach" in Italy (I wrote about it, of course!)

    Koper Transportation

    It is a good solution for the next visit - a cruise. You just have to check the Mediterranean lines to choose a program that crosses the Adriatic. I think that for me it will mean a second (at least) visit to most places, but it is a different approach, and Fernanda never seemed so enthusiastic with the idea. Who knows?
