i took the bus down to piran, a small coastal town at the bottom of slovenia on a wee peninsula. instantlly the place was beautiful and the weather set it off nicely. the bus station was right next to the marnia which was a good place to kick off the tour of the place. the maria was bustling with people and amazing boats.
after looking around the marina and its many lighthouses i headed to the towns central square, tartinjev trg. in the middle of the square is a monuement dedicated to a violinist from the town. around the square are a number of historical building and some cute houses along the way. overlooking the square is the towering st george church which can be seen from all over the town.
i decided to follow the water and walked along the coastline, which is bliss! just as i got the the end tthunder and lightening started and ended up in a massive storm for around an hour. it was pretty cool to watch. once it was over the weather really picked up and made the place even more beautiful. i took the walk up the hill to see st georges church up close and to the back was a great view out to sea and of the coastline.
this place is a really good day trip from the capital. everywhere you look is a wow factor and it just puts a smile on your face. although there isnt a great deal to see the feel of the place and the small cobbled streets are good to roam around.
