Visit Piran in Slovenia
Piran is the nicest settlement of the Slovenian coast, a fishing village with 5,000 residences is still retaining its medieval characteristics. Until the 6th century, it was inhabitant by Illyrians later by Romans and Slavs. Its name originates from the Greek word Pyr or light tower.
From 1282 to 1797, it was under Venetian rule. This long period left a deep mark on the image of the town and the form of beautiful finishing style palaces, rails, churches and statues. Following the follow, the Venetian republic it was under French, Austrian, then under Italian rules. Many still call it by its Italian name, “Pirano”.
After World War II until the change of the system, it was part of the Yugoslavia together with the entire Austrian Peninsula. On the narrow streets with there [Foreign Language] like atmosphere, motor vehicle traffic has been limited and with also better leave our cars outside the town walls. The wonders of the small settlement can just be discovered offered.
The main square of the town is the Tartinijev trg which one once a harbor and was filled up in the 19th century. The two columns in the harbor side of the square are decorated by the code of arms of Venice, when the picture of Saint Gregory, the patriot saint of the town. The name diver the square is the greatest son of Piran, the composer and violinist Giuseppe Tartini.
The memorial room of the artist can be found in the house of the square number 7 behind the statue. Out of the building of a square, we must mention Saint Peter church and the Venetian house. The town hall stands out from the venation style little palaces. They chose the influence of contemporary architecture of Vienna. The baroque Saint Gregory church with the rotating statue of the name of a saint on its tower rises far above the houses of Piran.
We find the creep of the Tartini family in this church. On the square is a small Saint Peter church originally gothic but reconstructed in 1818. Above the entrance is a relief of Saint Peter and inside is statue of the Piran Cross. The system of the town is very interesting in which the rainwater valuable in dry summers was collected. It’s supported by Allegoric the rose statues.
The arcade houses with roaches protected the residence of the town from the sun who still like to spend their time in the shade in the Espresso bars and restaurants here. It’s worth following their example. The Venetians style town gates and the view from the towers are beautiful. From the harbor, ships depart regularly to Venice, Koper, Porto Rose and the Croatian islands. Piran also proves that the short coast of Slovenia is the jam of the Adriactic.
