In Gorizia you can breathe the suspended atmosphere typical of a border town: in Piazza Transalpina, physically divided by a wall until 2004, you can walk with one foot in Italy and one in Slovenia. Gorizia and Nova Gorica have been proclaimed European Capital of Culture 2025.
Thanks to its particular geographical position, Gorizia has always been culturally influenced by the intersection of different civilizations: Latin, Slavic and Germanic. Located on the eastern border, it has always played a central role in Central Europe.
Today its streets, its architecture and its parks bear witness the great history of this city.
