Piran

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: make a trip to Tartini Square, admire the landmark architecture of Praetorian Palace, relax and rejuvenate at Fish Spa Piran, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. George's Church.
