One must fall in love with Piran slowly.
At first, this feels like an adoring love at first sight from a distance: a cluster of houses, jutting into the sea at the tip of the land and protected by the majestic St. George on the hill above. For centuries, the narrow cobblestone streets have been bustling with people following their own paths. Sometimes, these people furiously frown in disappointment while they generously scatter their bold plans and enthusiastically look forward at other occasions. And when the blazing sun sinks into the sea at the end of the day, there is more beauty for everyone. These experiences then develop into stories, some of which mature into legends that travel through time and connect us. We have slowly and fatally fallen in love with Piran. In it, we have found our second home and Mediterranean gene. We thrive on its stories. This is what our book is about.
