Once in Piran, you shouldn´t miss:
* Town walls and the Punta ( peninsula of a city),
* Tartini square (in summer there are many cultural feasts),
* 1st May square (was once the city centre),
* Try some cocktails in pub "Teater Caffe" while watching the sunset and listening the waves.
For those who like to get up early, it is a great experience to meet fishermen coming back from work.
If you are lucky and early enough you can buy their fish in the city »mandracchio« (lagoon)…
You will be surprised how many churches Piran has, not all of them have mass and ceremonies.
The main church (above Piran) of St. George (Sveti Jurij)was bulit in 1608 and has a smaller copy of the famous tower bell in Venice.
The Interior of the church is worth seeing. If the weather is nice you can climb on the tower bell, but careful if the bell has to »ring« right when you are admiring the view :).
It is very relaxing to explore the city streets, which sometimes become narrow and then open up to some worthwhile places and structures.
Near the church of St. George you can find a convent of St. Francis which is a spiritual and cultural centre.
It is very special event to enjoy a concert of classic music in the open renaissance yard and while listening you can look above and you can see the sky with the stars;
It is known as one of the most acoustic places in Slovenia.
In the city you can visit museum of diving and also the aquarium (www.aquariumpiran.si) where you can meet lovely sea »creatures« paying 7€/ adult person.
You can get a refreshment at the mini beach at the beginning of the city, but even better is Fiesa.
From Tartini square it is about 20 minutes of walking, but it is worth of it (you can also hire a scooter or bike to make quicker).
In Fiesa there is grass where you can sunbathe and there is no fee for the beach. There is also a place for beach volleyball and also party games (paying fees).
In the Punta area you can enjoy diving and explore a very rich subworld, in this part of the sea there is the most deepest point in the Slovenian sea,
called »Sea Triglav« (as the highest mountain in Slovenia).
