Miren is an urbanized settlement in the Municipality of Miren-Kostanjevica in the Littoral region of Slovenia right next to the border with Italy. The hill known as Miren Castle (Mirenski grad) rises above the settlement to the south.NameThe settlement was attested in written sources in 1494 as Merinach an der Wippach, and in 1523 as Japinitz oder Merina. The name is believed to have arisen through ellipsis of a noun phrase (e.g., *miren grad 'walled castle'), leaving the adjective *miren 'walled' (< *myrьnъ). If so, the name refers to the walls of Miren Castle above the settlement. A less likely theory derives the name from *Marijin 'Mary's', referring to the pilgrimage church above the settlement.ChurchThe parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint George and belongs to the Diocese of Koper. It was built between 1827 and 1828.Notable peopleNotable people that were born or lived in Miren include: Leopold Kemperle (1886–1950), journalistOskar Kogoj (born 1942), industrial designer (1908–1943), poet, pastoral workerKrištof Spollad (1777–1858), priestMarko Vuk (1947–2004), art historian (1912–1912), poet, writerWhether you only want to go to Miren, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Slovenia trip planner.
