Tartini Square (Tartinijev trg), Piran

4.6
Sitting close to the water's edge, paved with white marble and surrounded by elegant 19th-century buildings, Tartini Square (Tartinijev trg) serves as the largest square in town and a hub of activity. The square was part of the harbor until 1894, when it was filled in and mounted with a statue of violinist and composer Giuseppe Tartini, after whom the square is named. Most of the buildings are older than the square itself; be sure to look for the Gothic house, the only building that has preserved its original exterior. The square's distinctive oval shape comes from the time when it served as an electric railway station; today it's a pedestrianized zone. Relax with a beer, have a bite of pizza or pastry at one of the outdoor cafes, and watch the locals go about their daily lives.

  • leaving excursion by car from sad looking along the coast towns of interest and ended up in Piran that already belongs to Slovenia. We wanted to go to Tartini Square which is right in the Centre so we went there. Closer to the Center towards the 7 h at night with very few people down the street since towards also cold we see that there is a barrier for access to the town. Does not tell you whether it is traffic control or if it is type toll etc so we spent and the machine we yield a ticket saying we had to put him in sight in your car without further explanation. We thought that a traffic control was rather absurd at that time that neither 3ramos nor pelagatos streets day. As well after walk and a coffee in the only open place with two other people headed out of the village where there is a wand with a type within that asks for your ticket and tells you that you have to pay the outrageous amount of 3 euros per bone time 2 hours we were 6 euros. That abused for tourists or travelers who, due to lack of information or lack of knowledge, stick us with these sablazos when it 7nico that we do is to leave money in our way while we visited beautiful places. That little shame a scam or return or lo recomendare anyone. a village half dead to those hours and charge 6 euros for a walk... that timo...

  • The oval square in Piran is really impressive and deservedly is illustrated on the cover of Lonely Planet of Slovenia.

  • Oct 2017. Beautiful Town, Tartini Square, street patios, seaside restaurants are fabulous. One comment regarding ACCESSIBILITY. We arrived in a wheelchair accessible van but were not allowed to enter the city with the van, our driver had to park outside the city core and we walked with wheelchair into the heart of town, it is not a short distance. Considering the numerous able-body people who were driving in and out of town, I think it's time Piran reconsider it's vans-in-town rule when it comes to accessibility, like many other European cities and towns.
  • Very small nice place. Ideal to spend one day -even a night there. Very friendly people. There are some places where you can swim. The restaurants and markets have good prices.
  • Nice place to be with family. Closed area for traffic. Good restaurants. Nice people, nice city!
  • Magnificent square in a centre of beautiful city, Piran. Definitely do not miss this one! The sea was very clean at time of our visit and swimming next to local historical buildings is really romantic.
  • really nice city near the sea, nice place to have a walk and spend half a day or a day in the small town and city center
