this august we went to the slovenian adria, visting the city of piran. its situated on an a headland, so one can see it from a far.

going into town (by bus, cars are banned) you arrive at the main square, the tartinijev trg.

on one corner there is a “venezian palazzo”.

from the square you can see the cathedral st.-georges and baptisterium in the back on a hill.

from that hill you hve a nice view on the square. from the the guidebook i learned, that the square emerged, when the former harbour was filled in 1894. you can see the new harbour now in the back at the right.

the square seems to be the main stage for pirans urban (and touristic) live – on the first evening we dropped into some street theatre.
on the other evening we found that its smooth limestone surface attracs a lot of folk with wheels.
