Piran: Slovenia's Prettiest Town

Piran: Slovenia's Prettiest Town, Piran, Slovenia (B)

You may not know it, but there are more things to do in Slovenia than just visiting Ljubljana or Lake Bled. And perhaps it may come as a surprise to you, but Slovenia also has a little sliver of beautiful coastline along the Adriatic Sea. While we settled in Piran (Pirano), the gem of the Slovenian Riviera, for our 4 day Easter weekend, it’s also an easy day trip from both Ljubljana and Lake Bled and I can say with absolute certainty that if you’re planning a Balkan road trip, you will want to add this to your itinerary! But what makes this enchanting city along the Adriatic so special?

While the Slovenian coastline is still relatively under the radar, there are several coastal treasures, such as nearbyPortoroz, Izola, Koper and Piran as the cream of the crop! Located along the Istria region, the largest peninsula along the Adriatic Sea which is stretches from the Bay of Trieste to the Kvarner Gulf and is shared between Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. Sat along the tiny sliver of Adriatic coastline which belongs to Slovenia, Piran is choc-a-bloc of red roofed, medieval houses with Venetian palazzos littered with cafes and souvenir shops guiding you to the town center, Tartini Square. While there aren’t exactly a plethora of things to do in Piran, Tartini Square is one of the most iconic images of Piran you’ll come across. While you could do a Piran Walking Tour which includes food tasting and a sunset tour for 14 € each, wandering the peninsula of Piran and discovering the town for yourself is much more relaxing! ......
