now is a good time to share some details about Izola...
Looking for some fun or just a glass of refosko?
The Manzioli wine bar on the exceptional Manzioli square will probably host many events this year as well, but you can also have a drink.
The most beautiful location in Izola, at Svetilnik modernly renovated, expect a bit of a crowd, but the location outweighs it.
Morning coffee by the sea, some fancy cocktail after lunch or craft beer in the evening, it is always on your way to the beach, Vitaminček bar,
On the coastal path towards San Simon is the Hangar bar, which has become an important musical meeting place for lovers of alternative music in Slovenian Istria. The range of beers is huge. And on the shore of Belvedere is BELVEDERE BEACH BAR a most beautiful panoramic scene of Izola, by the sea.
Hungry already? There are quite a few catering options in Izola. If you have the desire, you can try everything, but it will take more time. If you don't know what to do, start at the beginning, if you want to surprise yourself, shoot blindly. However, we have written down our top suggestions:
