I loved the vibes in this small coastal town in Slovenia. I don’t have many tips to give but still wanted to tell you about this town because not only was it beautiful but Piran, Slovenia surprised me. I actually didn’t know there was a coast in Slovenia before I booked this trip. The coast is tiny (just 46 km long) but they sure do make the most of it.
You can’t help but have your camera out at all times in Piran, at least I couldn’t. Everything was so photogenic. I was traveling with my friend, Helen, who is a photographer, and took loads as well.
I go to Europe every year but usually just Austria and London. Then, there was Finland and Latvia, but overall I don’t get many Europe vibes. So, to be here brought me back in time to Italy and Croatia years ago. It really did look similar and they even have signs in Italian!
The food was delicious. Pasta with truffle, grilled sea bass, and tasty cakes! We never stopped eating. I didn’t see a lot of street food or pizza shops, though. It was mostly sit down restaurants and cafes.
There was a promenade with all the shops and cafes. It was really windy on one side of the peninsula, then really calm on the other. On the windy side, there were many people out kitesurfing.
The pretty courtyard above and balcony below were from the Kempinski hotel where I stayed. Technically, it is in PortoRoz which is the village next to Piran. But, they are both such small “beach towns” you can just walk along the beach from one to the next.
The sunset over the sea was gorgeous. We saw a nice couple having drinks with their adorable dog. Helen was deadset on going over to say hello, so we did. I’m usually not that brave to go up to strangers! But, they were so nice and so was their dog, Dexter.
I loved taking photos here and thought it was a cute town. I’m sorry I don’t have “tips” for you but really it’s so small, you don’t need them. Just wander around, look at how lovely the town is, and eat!
I don’t know if there are many activities here. If you want a tour here, you can get in touch with Kristina at email@example.com. She’s a guide, I met her, and she’s really nice!
