Located only a few kilometres from the town centre of Nova Gorica, Kromberk Castle acts as the focal exhibition venue of the Regional museum Goriški muzej which is in turn the foremost museum institution in the Vipava Valley. The original castle structure was built in the first half of the 13th century. It was set ablaze in both World Wars, only to be gradually restored to its former glory by the post-war recovery efforts of the Regional Museum. Kromberk Castle showcases permanent art exhibitions and cultural history exhibitions, with a dedicated space for temporary exhibitions. Surrounded by a lovely park, the castle premises also boast an amphitheatre and outdoor lapidarium.
