Orthopaedic Hospital Valdoltra

Orthopaedic Hospital Valdoltra has a rich one-hundred-year tradition. It was established in the distant year of 1909. It is located on 17,530m2 of surface area in a peaceful and beautiful part of the Adriatic coast between Koper and Trieste, covered in grapevines and olive trees, and imbued with the energy of the sun and the sea, the summer mistral wind and the winter bora wind.
