Archeological finds from the Iron Age reveal that major trade and military roads passed through here. Later, the Romans were masters here, then the Slavs settled, and its first medieval lords were the Aquileian Patriarchs. Until the 16th century, the region was governed by the Counts of Gorizia, and after their demise, the region became a Hapsburg possession. Aside from a brief period under Napoleon's Illyrian Provinces, the region was ruled by Austria until the end of World War I and by Italy until World War II. After World War II when Primorska was ceded to Yugoslavia and Slovenia but the city of Gorizia remained in Italy following the decision of the 1946 Paris Peace Conference, Nova Gorica ("New Gorizia") was planned as a regional center. By 1948, the first new buildings had been constructed. Although Nova Gorica has no ancient core, it still has great spirit and character, interesting surroundings, delicious cuisine, and excellent wines.
