Izola Overview

Most of Izola's visitors find Simonov zaliv (San Simon) the reason to head for the town in the first place, but there is much more... Special architecture of the ancient town core demonstrates a rich history of a town which was once an island. Fishing tradition is still present in Izola’s modern tourist offer and culinary specifics. Take a walk on one of the numerous walkways and experience Izola’s countryside.
The ancient part of the town is located on an island which was inhabited already in the first century A.D. and later connected to the coast by a stone bridge. It was surrounded by town walls which were demolished in the beginning of the 19th century and the ruins were used to fill up the sea between the island and the coast. In early 13th century Izola declared independence and became a town with its own laws and authorities. Take a journey through the medieval alleys of the city centre and admire its unusual architecture telling its exciting history. In the surrounding countryside, you can taste local delicacies, olive oil, and local wines.
