Piran is the old port city in Slovenian Istra. The city is bilingual, Italian and Slovenian. The Italian name for the city is Pirano. It is situated in the cape of the Piran peninsula. Piran has kept its medieval appearance with narrow streets and closely built houses, which gives it a typical Mediterranean character and special charm. On a hill above the houses is the church of Saint George with a high tower, and many paintings and artwork inside. Piran has been settles since before Roman times. In the years between 1909 and 1953, Piran was connected with Portoroz and Lucija by the electric railway. Today Piran is an administrative and tourist center, which attracts both local and foreign visitors. Some of the most fascinating sites in Piran include Tartini Square, the Town Palace, the Tartini Monument, Tartini House, special stone columns for flags, the Court Palace, the May 1 Square, also known as the Old Square, and the old town wall, composed of three walls from different periods in time. In the city center is the Aquarium which was established in 1964. The Promenade is along the coast and offers many restaurants with a wide variety of local foods and drinks.
