Portoroz literally means Port of Roses. This small seaside resort less than 20km from the Italian border lies on Slovenia’s Istrian coast. And the name befits the town as its pampering roots date back to the 13th century, when Benedictine monks used seaweed and the famous Portoroz salt to soothe the stresses of High Middle Ages businessfolk. Later, members of the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy and military officers flocked here for the therapeutic baths.
