Adorable jewel of the Slovenian coast and a town with real Istrian charm. This small town is located on Cape Madona or Punta of Piran, which separates the Bay of Piran and Koper. Locals often joke that no one can come or go unnoticed, because there is only one way to the city.
The central Tartini Square which was named after an exceptional virtuoso and author of one of the most famous and most challenging European violin compositions, allegedly dictated to him by the devil himself. You can visit his birth house, the Maritime Museum in the palace Gabrielli, numerous galleries, renovated Piran Aquarium or climb the mighty walls, and enjoy the wonderful view. Piran is a town of artists and seafarers and each year it offers a rich list of events such as Salina Holiday accompanied with the procession of the St. George (Solinarski praznik s procesijo Sv. Jurija) that is always well visited by the tourist and locals also, Piran musical evenings, Tartini Festival, Folklore Festival MIFF, Puppet Street Festival, Piran Days of Architecture, traditional baptism of seafarers in September and many others… Here you can are lose yourself trough the narrow streets, go shopping at the local market or nearby souvenir shops, dine in restaurants with delicious and diverse cuisine, take your friends for a drink in one of the seaside cafes with magnificent sea views and later on take a stroll till the edge of the cape and climb the lighthouse of Piran, one of the main sights of the town.
