Piran is a very special, precious city. It is the best preserved cultural monument of Slovenian Istria and its image is known all over the world. Its architecture is influenced by the former Venetian Republic, which left its mark on most Istrian towns. Throughout time, Piran has maintained the clustered medieval structure with narrow winding streets, houses huddled close together, rising in cascades, the contact with the sea, numerous squares and churches.
