The Gem of the Slovenian Coast
The town of Piran has the reputation of being the most beautiful city on the Slovenian coast. The medieval labyrinth of streets, squares, churches and city walls are demonstrating the rich history of the town, which once was a part of the Serenissima, the Republic of Venice and for more than a century part of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. The town has traditionally lived on fishing, maritime trade, and salt production. Nowadays, the city of Piran is an administrative, cultural and tourist center that attracts visitors from near and far.
