Slovenia is becoming increasingly prevalent in the tourism industry and Piran is the catalyst for its rapid progression. The appeal for Piran lies in its seasonal dexterity; holidaymakers line the picturesque streets and swarm the charming alleyways in the height of summer, yet in the quieter, winter months tourists can wander around Old Town and witness the Gothic architecture in relative peace. The Venetian history is still embedded in the town’s infrastructure, and the array of fine restaurants and Mediterranean weather exude an Italian vibe.
To really experience the relaxed atmosphere and unique buildings that are synonymous with Piran, head to Tartini Square to embrace the stunning scenery. Away from the main square, the town walls showcase a unique land structure that is hard to find in a coastal resort and the Church of St. George is a must see for anyone with a penchant for religious history and culture. For an organised tour of Piran, many companies offer reasonable prices with an informative guide.
