Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.

And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Svetilnik Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Francis of Assisi, take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of St. Maurus, and steep yourself in history at Muda Gate.
