Portoroz Travel Guide


Like many of its neighbors, Portoroz, the Port of Roses, was first populated by prehistoric Illyrian tribes. The Roman Empire established farms and villas in the villa rustica style. The town later established a trade treaty with Venice, and welcomed the Benedictines in the 12th century with the raising of the Church of St. Marie Rosary in the 13th century. The St. Laurence monastery was later established as a health destination, where monks healed rheumatic illness and other diseases with a combination of concentrated salt water and healing mud. The Venetian Republic was followed by the influence of the Austrian Empire, a brief period as a free territory of Trieste, then Yugoslavian control. Today, tourism, gaming, casinos, and a tourist complex offering pleasant diversions draw crowds to this Slovenian Garden of Eden.
