Tartini Square (Tartinijev Trg) Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Piran’s Tartini Square (Tartinijev Trg) is one of the most impressive plazas in Slovenia, and that's not just because of its grand Venetian and neo-Renaissance surroundings. Originally outside city walls, the square first served as a fishing dock, and by the end of the 19th century, was completely overrun with sewage, prompting city officials to build the public square on top. Today, the pedestrian-only plaza sits between Piran's Town Hall and Court House, and serves as a scenic venue for concerts and events, as well as a popular meeting spot for city locals. Go for the people-watching or for excellent views of the surrounding hills, architecture, and Adriatic Sea.
Within the square, you'll see a 19th-century monument of the violinist and composer Giuseppe Tartini, for whom the square is named for, and two stone flag poles from the 15th century at either side of its entrance.
Set in the center of Piran, Tartini Square is within walking distance from most centrally-located hotels. For day trippers, free buses carry passengers to and from the car parks outside of the center. During the summer months, free mini buses run to and from Tartini Square and other coastal towns in Slovenia.
