In case that you miss when its open during the mass, definetly dont miss the opportunity to look at all frescoes inside and especially to the unique representation of Christ on cross dating back from middle ages. We have explored it thanks to visiting Parish museum, as when you pay the entrance fee for the museum you can explore the... More

In May, 2016, a friend and I had visited Piran and while attending a conference in the neighbouring town of Portoroz. Among the attractions that we were able to catch a glympse of, was the Church of St. George. Getting there, we caught a Gratis Bus (a.k.a. Free Bus - where you don't have to pay) at the border between... More

St. George is one of the churches with best positions in Slovenia – best church at Slovenian coast. There are three buildings at the top of the hill: church, baptistery and huge tower. Tower is older than St. Mark’s tower in Venice (rebuilt after 1902 collapse). Baptistery is small round building with very impressive Crucifix. Church is interesting hall church... More

This beautiful church holds a commanding view over the town of Piran and Adriatic waters. It's shadow falls upon city square and dories in the harbor. On top of the spire, the angel guards all below. Inside, the statue of St. George is cherubic: he's a young round faced knight and his horse rears over the vanquished dragon. Although many... More

Nice walk up to it. Nice little town too. Church looks down on the town. It's worth the trek up to it for the city views.

The whole town though quite small is an adventure in walking. Basically a quite place (when I was there) might be quite busy at time. I'm not only reviewing the church which seems to be the main highlight, but the city and surrounding area, ay be one of the best places to travel in Slovenia; the Istrian shoreline in Slovenia

We walked up through the narrow winding streets in Piran to this church on the hill. From the outside it was not ornate at all, but with a look inside, its beauty is revealed. An ideal spot for photographing Piran and its rooftops and surrounding sea. The bells ring out regulary. Be sure to be prepared for that. This church... More

St. George's Cathedral gives the city its special character. It was probably built in the 12th century, but no exact data in this regard exists. The St. George was protector of the town. The wall paintings are the work of the Venetian school. Really worth seeing when in Piran!

1.5 Euro will buy you entry to the church, which has three parts. A small display of around 20 religious artefacts in the treasury, the crypt with some very old walls, and the church itself which is highly decorated and has some elaborate carvings. I thought this was a fair price, even if you can see some of the interior... More

A must visit in Piran! The church interior is beautiful with a wooden ceiling. The terrace around the church offer one of the best views to Piran and Slovenian cost. Do climb on the church tower for even a beter view. And tak a look at capers which are hanging from the stone walls. Beautiful flowere, nice smeling and edible... More
