    Amazing architecture and views of Piran from the top of the towers. Must visit! Entrance fee is very cheap at EUR2 per person, but you DO need to mind your head when climbing the tower stairs! :)

    The Tartini square in Piran is probably the nicest place in the city (together with the view we can get from the city walls). It is a very large square surrounded by many old buildings with a great architecture (including the famous Town Hall), and a nice selection of pubs and restaurants.

    Right in the middle of the square there is a statue of Tartini, whose story is a very good one and is worth to be told (or read online). Once a year, the square becomes a huge place for free concerts.

    Very interesting, informative and colorful. The staff was happy to answer a lot of questions (even the stupid ones). Recommend!

    I went through the museum first because there was a service going on in the church.The museum was small but had interesting depictions of the history of the architecture of the church over time.The church itself was beautiful with it's golden alter and blue painted ceiling and statues and monuments around the nave

    The port of Piran is a pleasant place to walk close by the sea, along the shore. The harbour is full of various small boats (some recent ones and some older ones), which adds up to the view to make the atmosphere quite relaxing.

    Moreover, the port is situated next to several buildings with an interesting architecture (maybe not as great as in Piran’s downtown), and various restaurants and cafes.

    We visited here this morning to see the 1850 Gabrielli Palace as well as the museum. After paying 6 Euros for 2 seniors and using the clean restroom, we began our 3 floor self tour. The most interesting ground floor room exhibited Stone-Bronze-Roman age (4,0000 BC- 300 AD artifacts below glass while the other had sea/ship pictures. The palace’s main floor was shown in period with furniture, wall & ceiling designs, glass cased sailing ships and a beautiful rotunda salon. The 3rd floor was devoted to wartime Slovenian sailors, military hardware and ship equipment.
    This nice palace has an elevator to the side of its intriguing ground to attic stairway.

    It is easy to miss the cloisters because the entrance is just in an ordinary looking street going up the hill from the main square. For this reason perhaps not so many tourists visit it.
    To get the best of it needs a guidebook or a guide as there is very little in the way of explanations provided.
    The cloisters themselves are plain but with interesting artifacts - such as the seat made from a very old olive tree.
    The church is typical but nonetheless beautiful.
    Recommended.

    Small, one-room aquarium in a small town. I found the place quite sympathetic, because it only had local fish and other sea creatures in fairly small tanks. Worth checking out for the price of 5 euros.

    We found the guide here invaluable in understanding the recent history of this church. Especially during the communist era. Some of the art works are now in Italy and await repatriation. Look out for the immense sea shell. But use a guide.

    I am a nerd. And, this is a nerd history museum.
    Do you enjoy science, history and engineering? If yes, then you will love this small museum. Lots to read about (in both Slovene and English). Slovenia (with a short coastline) is very proud of their efforts in the underwater area.

    + Inexpensive.
    + Great "music". Bubbles.
    - Cash only
    - No Wi-Fi.

    Had I walked through here on my own, I might not have realized the significance of this square. Once our guide pointed out the cistern and the spouting, it was all much more interesting. This is definitely one of those places that I was happy to have a guide to show me the significance of the area we were in.

    This is a wonderful small hotel to use as a base when exploring the coast of Slovenia. We stayed in the attic apartment which overlooked Tartini Square so you can't get much closer to town center. The free parking was wonderful since parking in this area is in short supply. The room was comfortable and clean and the owner was extremely helpful in sorting out an issue we had with our rental car. I would definitely rate this place as one of the best in the area.

    The Town Hall of Piran is a beautiful building with a great architecture. It lies on the Tartini square that is also surrounded by old buildings, restaurants and bars. It is a bit a pity that the town hall cannot be visited, but as it is still a functional building, this could have been expected.

    A great way to learn about the development of the city of Piran, in an entertaining way. Short media presentation gives a background of the culture and history on this lovely coastal city. Posters and interactive materials throughout. Recommended.

    First - the photo above is not from this church - it is from main cathedral of st. George. Church does not have a bell tower. It is very nice decorated from inside - specially around altar. Take a look at the ceiling painting which looks like a balcony.
