    The old fishermen town

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Years ago Piran was small fishermen town and it was the main occupation of its citizens. Little by little, the whole place was turned into one of the most important tourists resorts of Slovenia. Only a few profesional fishermen left in town now, however, many of those who have been retired still can be seen around. I had a nice chatt with one of them.

    Those who keep the economy running don't have a name, unfortunately. They are the local fishermen who keep the town and its maritime traditions alive. If you go strolling along the inner harbour in the early morning you will see them surrounded by hungry cats, unloading their catch of the day. They do deserve a praise
