Piran (Slovene pronunciation: [piˈɾáːn] ( listen); Italian: Pirano [piˈraːno]) is a town in southwestern Slovenia on the Gulf of Piran on the Adriatic Sea. It is one of the three major towns of Slovenian Istria. 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. Until the mid-20th century, Italian was the dominant language, but was replaced by Slovene as demographics shifted.

The only Museum of Shells in Slovenia and other interesting animals from ALL OVER THE WORLD!More than 4000 specimens of unusual and rare molluscs! The biggest clam in the world, pearls, crabs, sea urchins,sea stars. You can see the shell of the biggest snail in the world, shells of snails so rare that only tribal chiefs of distant Islands were allowed to wear and many more surprises ...
Shells are displayed from all over the world. A very interesting array of different types, colors, sizes. The museum docent was the best in his infectious delight about the shells and gave us a handy guide to help us go through the museum.

The town walls run along from one side of the peninsula to the other as a way of guarding the entire city between the walls and the sea. The walls are easily walk-able and you can climb the towers too, to get a really great view of the Adriatic and the surrounding countryside.
Really is a good experience for the minimal price.

Nice big square with great views out to sea. Lots of lovely shops and restaurants around it and it had a massive Christmas tree and fairy light up when we visited although it was quite warm for December!

The baroque style church is a landmark overlooking Piran. The road to it is behind Tartini Square and it is steep. Inside the church there is a great statue of St George slaying his dragon and lovely painted ceilings and ornate alter. For E1.50 you can visit the small museum containing treasures such as statues and roman foundations as well as enter the main church (otherwise for free you can peer through the metal gate at the entrance. Well worth the E1.50.

Interesting old museum on 2 floors. In the museum you can find also old furniture. In one angle you can find very interesting floor, because it is made of glass and below are stones and sea shells. Museum talks about development of Slovenian maritime.

This is more than a church, it's also a convent. The church has several nice altars. There's also a cloister and a couple other rooms one with some interesting artifacts and paintings. Found this much more interesting than St George up the street.
