Tartini Square (Tartinijev trg), Piran

(4.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Piran is a town shy, reveals its beauty little by little. leave the car in the parking lots outside (the multilevel car park has a lift down to sea level) and for any convenient free bus, in a few minutes around the headland, along the picturesque port and you will reach Piazza Tartini, lovely. It is certainly one of the most beautiful views of Slovenia. The square, overlooking the sea, is enclosed by the old Borgo that Shell, clambering on the Hill and ending up with the ancient walls. At the top stands the Church of San Giorgio and the pointed steeple. Make a fine show shine palaces, ancient houses very well kept, the statue of Tartini, musician who was born here, and crowded terraces. From the narrow and steep branches off a maze of streets and promenade, packed with restaurants. During the bathing season overcrowding compromises the charm; the best time to enjoy Piran is spring, when the first visitors to the revived.

  • GiuseppeTartini, recently cleaned, stands in front of the Mayoral offices on Tartini Trg in Piran. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, galleries, the harbour and local busses are all to be found here. Narrow ways lead to the old light on 'punta' or to the cathedral. Mostly pedestrianised so park at the multi-storey at Fornače and catch the free bus in.
  • You should come here if you're in the area. Its quite nice and closed off to cars. A short walk away from great restaurants.
  • Unique town square with Venetian style buildings and exceptional view. much less busy than Venezia. Recommend diving museum - 3 min walk towards bus station.
  • Really lovely place. Full with people and lot's of cafes. I love this place. During the day or at night it looks always amazing. Worth of visiting.
  • Nice place to be with family. Closed area for traffic. Good restaurants. Nice people, nice city!
