Piran - located in southwestern Slovenia on the Adriatic Sea - is one of the most photogenic cities in the Mediterranean. The landscape of this beautiful coastal town located in the peninsula is dominated by the massive walls on the hills above the city. The first wall was built in the 7th century, separating the town into four streets. In the next centuries the wall was moved south-west when the city were expanded. Significant parts of the fortification walls (15th - 16th century) are well-preserved. Its northern part is accessible for tourists.
