Winter - Portorož - Piran


Winter by the sea

A jump in the sea can be just as exciting in the winter months as any other. There are activities catered to every need.

Retreat to the pleasant Mediterranean climate and enjoy winter festivities in a different way. Capture the magic of the winter holidays by experiencing local events and going to the Christmas/New Year's themed market, have a toast with champagne at the local Champagne Festival, and enjoy a romantic getaway for two before the start of spring.

Experience the magical winter sunsets, the healing power of the sea, the rich Istrian cuisine inspired by the Mediterranean and many sunny days. Portorož and Piran are ideal places to wash away the winter blues.

There is always something going on!

Taste local fresh delicacies and world renowned wines by attending a number of culinary events and wine festivals. Feel the euphoria of major sporting events or even participate in one. Discover the authentic local culture and the live arts scene or let yourself loose at an outdoors music festival with scenic backgrounds. Varied events through the year will make your visit memorable!
