Nice place for Underwater lovers. If you aren't a passionate lover of underwater activities maybe this is not the right place to visit:). In any case you can spend an interesting 30 minutes of your time in Piran.

If you dive or have an interest in the sea, great way to spend an hour. €4.50 each. Everything translated into English and plenty of info on the evolution of diving. Just a shame there's not more info on local sites to dive etc.
