Welcome to the old Mediterranean town of Izola

The old Mediterranean town of Izola leans on the south-western coast of the Gulf of Trieste, where the genuine tradition of fishing and winemaking, the mystical traces of the past and the kindness of the locals form an unforgettable mosaic of experiences. The lively pace of the town and the romantic character welcome you, which is why it is said that you never forget Izola.

The turbulent history of the little fishing town created wonderful architecture treasures and old legends, which bring you back in time when Izola was still an island. The spirit of the Mediterranean can be felt with every step on clustered medieval streets, with the view of the rocking boats, with a relaxing chat with the locals, and with the aroma of speciality seafood dishes accompanied by good wine.

In Izola it is never boring because there are various sport, culture and entertainment events throughout the whole year and they are inspired by old customs and traditions. Museum, galleries and studios will bring you to the world of Istrian art and craft, but if you wish to experience real spiritual refreshment, sail the Adriatic sea.
