Piran

Sightseeing in Piran

share

Not much of an effort needs to be made to go sightseeing in Piran, in fact quite the opposite is true: it would take a Herculean feat to avoid seeing the town's wealth of sights. In addition to a lengthy must-see list of churches, squares and palaces, there are countless less-heralded sights to be enjoyed. Piran's cobbled backstreets and alleyways are literally lined with statues, arches, coats of arms, intricately carved doors and stately old villas just waiting to imprint themselves in visitors' memories. The region's long seafaring tradition is also well-represented at two nautical themed museums, and a number of art galleries - both public and private - hold regular exhibitions.

Piran is easily covered on foot, although a hike up to the cathedral and further on to the remaining section of the old town wall is enough to leave us in need of a cold beer and a siesta, especially during the summer. Also be aware that many of the museums and galleries keep shorter hours in the winter, some even open by appointment only, so if you visit during the low season it's always a good idea to drop by the helpful tourist office for all the latest information.
