Piran, the dream city

One of the most photogenic cities in the Mediterranean, Piran has preserved its unsurpassed charm. Enter the picturesque Piran, get to know its rich history and culture, and listen to the stories of our people.

The proximity to the sea and the rich history, which is mirrored in the architecture, draw magical scenes.

In Piran, you will feel as though you have stepped right into a picture postcard. You will be charmed by the narrow streets within the old town wall. In the main square, you will be greeted by the statue of the most famous man in Piran, the well-known Giuseppe Tartini, composer and virtuoso violinist who was born in a house just steps from the square. On the pier, you can catch sight of fisherman unravelling a fishing net. A market woman from Piran will have just delivered vegetables, fresh from her garden, to the market. Locals sitting by the sea, chatting and listening to sounds of the sea, greet you with a nod.

Having coffee, lunch or dinner surrounded by sounds of the sea will ensure pleasant memories for a long time to come.

Our town is very proud of its various cultural and art establishments such as the Tartini theatre, coastal galleries, Maritime museum and Aquarium. Many national and international artists gather at the annual Ex-tempore. Throughout the year, many other cultural events take place.

Some, especially traditional events are connected to our natural heritage and our crops. Every year on St. George’s Day, the patron saint of Piran, we organise the festival of salt to honour the famous salt produced at the Sečovlje Salina. In autumn, inhabitants of Piran organise the Festival of Persimmon… Here you can read about how we celebrate the local products such as olive oil, wine, garlic and chard.
