Trip Planner: Europe / Slovenia / Slovenian Littoral Region / Slovenian Istria / Piran / Tartini Square
Sitting close to the water's edge, paved with white marble and surrounded by elegant 19th-century buildings, Tartini Square 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. Put Tartini Square at the forefront of your travel plans using our Piran trip tool.

From the couple doing the tango, to the gorgeous Venetian house to the concierge-like help of the tourism office, we adore this public space!

Whilst it was difficult to find parking, this square is part of a lovely coastal town complete with castle and great coastal views. Great spot for a visit and 2-3 day stay
This little village was such a wonderful surprise! We were staying in Portoroz for a conference and by chance took the free shuttle bus into the village. We then walked everywhere as you cannot drive there. It was so worth it! So beautiful from every angle. Everyone speaks some English too, which was very helpful. But, If you only speak English, be patient and remember they all speak about 4 other languages and we only speak one, so we are the uneducated ones in their space. Delicious Gelato everywhere too!
