The dream city
Piran is a true gem of the Adriatic coast, located in Slovenian Istria, with Italy on the horizon and Croatia 20 minutes away. Since being part of the Venetian Republic, Piran maintained the narrow winding streets, beautiful squares & churches and breathtaking sea views.
Piran is a member of the European Walled Cities Association and a national historical monument. Unparalleled views of the entire town, the sea and the Croatian and Italian coast can be enjoyed from the city walls. Classical Tartini Square is the cultural centre of Piran and hosts many concerts and cultural events throughout the year.
St. George's Cathedral
Above the compact town centre reigns St. George’s Cathedral, which gives the city its special character. It was probably built in the 12th century, but no exact data in this regard exists.
