Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran

I might have showed most of today’s doors in previous years, but not the lighthouse as I was up there for the first time, and not the Ferrari. This is Piran on the Slovenian coast, the first place Crystal asked to see.

These are all from one day, Saturday, September 4. After arriving from Tuscany by way of Padua the night before, we had all day to stroll around Piran, swim with mother, climb things, eat lunch in the Bosnian restaurant Sarajevo 1984, mostly ignore a bunch of Ferraris that came in revving, and finally eat lovely dinner that father prepared (and mom bought lettuce).

Even though – I must admit – doors were not the first thing on my mind that week, of course they are everywhere and seeing some was like meeting old friends, so when I clicked I did it in greeting and recognition.

I did (at least) three things for the first time: climb the (small) lighthouse, the (big) walls, and visit the Mediadom, a (mostly) digital museum. The biggest thing to climb – the St. George church tower – remains for the next time. Maybe.

No maybes about this: Piran is pretty and Crystal and Pedro loved it, no matter how on entering it the night before Crystal exclaimed: “It’s full of tourists!”

  1. These are wonderful, Manja. I like the old stone building (the one you said was so old) the best, but they are all beautiful. The door to the lighthouse made me smile. Heading back down would be a daunting task for some. Thanks for bringing us along on the tour.

  2. I too love door #13. It’s my lucky number. I’m not a fan of any tight space going upward but the photos are fun to see. That way I don’t have to do the climb. Crystals comment is hilarious. My mother did the same thing the last time we visited Germany, her birth country. She looked around the square and asked why there were so many damn foreigners. 🙂 I just looked at her stunned. Great collection of doors. They do make you think.

  3. Great to pick up the flavor of Piran, reminding me of Cingue Terre. Love the Tartini Square and the lighthouse. The steep outside stairs are so nostalgic:) Thanks for sharing this trip with us, Manja:) Emille (Jesh

  4. As usual a great variety of doors. I like the view of the square from above. I get the so many tourist idea but then you were tourists as well. 🙂 I’ve felt that way before but have to remind myself that tourist spots are that way because they’re beautiful a/o unique and I visiting too.
