Izola is a small town facing the nord Adriatic Sea with 16.000 inhabitants. It is a popular tourism resort due to its pleasant Mediterranean climate, preserved nature and lively medieval old town. It is a destination appreciated by tourists especially for the beautiful landscape that can be explored by walking, cycling or by horse-riding.
Water has a deep impact on the town. The sea, which in past times used to provide food and existence to fishermen and their families, today enables development of tourism. But it is not only the sea the main attraction. Izola also has the unique abundance of Mediterranean plants flourishing in its green parks. This is due to the water springs laying underneath Izola and feeding its numerous wells and fountains.
Hotel Delfin makes a further step in the development of the Izola’s “water concept”. Pools with heated sea water and the brand new Kneipp garden, the first in Europe with Mediterranean plants and herbs, are the main attraction for visitors.
