The town has much medieval architecture, with narrow streets and compact houses. Piran is the administrative centre of the local area and one of Slovenia’s major tourist attractions. It is known as one of the most photogenic cities with its special charm. Let yourself go, enter the pearl of Mediterranean, get to know the history, culture and stories of our locals.
Magical scenes drawn along Piran’s streets will make you feel like you are present in the moment. Make a great picture postcard view from the city wall, enjoy a cup of coffee and the company of virtuoso violinist Giuseppe Tartini on the main square or observe the traditions of locals along the sea and through the Old Town.

Istrian cuisine is renowned for its usually simple yet extremely delicious and healthy homemade dishes. A long time ago, our grandmothers prepared them with a lot of imagination and love. They were extraordinarily inventive. They were able to prepare real feasts from the few ingredients that were available. They used the products they had grown and that was at hand. Their knowledge and skills are nowadays cherished and practised by more and more valued chefs in our local traditional and hotel restaurants, family inns by the sea and in the countryside.
