The beautiful city of Nova Gorica is located in the western part of Slovenia, being on the border between Italy and Slovenia, it is the exact counterpart of the italian Gorizia on the other side, two border cities living together in perfect harmony. Nova Gorica is a young city, founded only in 1948, when it broke away from the City of Gorizia and became the heart of the Goriška Region. This detachment was never completely final however, thanks to relentless economic and cultural exchange activities between the two neighboring countries and to the fact that Slovenia entered into the Schengen Area on 21 December 2007. The territory is crossed by several rivers and mountains, the climate is mild and green spaces are well distributed all over the city.
Nova Gorica is an extraordinary tourist and cultural attraction, many events take place here all year round, there are countless accommodation facilities and cafés satisfying the most different tastes; people will be happy to spend their holidays here in all seasons, the winter is ideal for skiers thanks to the presence of the slopes of the Julian Alps, under the favourable conditions of spring it will be possible to go rafting or kayaking along the rivers while the territory offers inviting places for hiking and biking in spring and autumn.
In the heart of the city stands the most important Trade Center of the region, The EDA Center, where prestige and beauty, business or freetime merge together in the elegant design of this majestic tower with 72 meters long (4 below + 15 above ground floors); this imposing "Vertical City", dedicated to flight pioneers Brothers Rusjan and their first plane, the EDA, is a real downtown where we can live, work, study, play, go shopping, socialize...needless to say that from the highest floors we can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city. Nova Gorica is the city of roses, in the month of May, in fact, everything turns into a whirlwind of fragrances thanks to the traditional Festival of Roses, it is also an ever-growing cultural center, performances and concerts are constantly scheduled to take place in the Theatre of the city. Planned by Ravnikar, it was built between 1987 and 1994 and is therefore one of the youngest theatres throughout the region, its body is shaped like a cylinder, the interiors are a beautiful example of elegance and refinement, the outside with columns closes the front side of the main square (Bevkov trg). Not far away is located the City Hall, an imposing building with arches where, among other things, many important events take place thanks to the huge lawn in front of the building.
