Housing in Nova Gorica

Housing in Nova Gorica is varied. There are many apartments building and tall towering structures built of concrete. Much of the housing was built in a hurry following WWII when the Allies laid the border and gave the city of Gorizia to the Italians even though there was a large Slovenian population. I think most of the homes and apartments are heated with hot water radiators, but this green building often has smoke coming from the chimmneys and piles of wood along the side.
