Piran is a small city at Slovenian coast. It is beautiful small city with clean sea water. We simply loved it. A lot of small restaurants at a coast and from them you can just jump into the sea.

It was alright. Nothing amazing to really look at and because the city is pretty spread out you'll walk a long ways for not a huge reward.
