view from afar over to peninsula of piran

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.
