Description Change this

The design of Tartini Square is a multi-layered cultural-historical process in specific topographical situation of the coastal city of Piran. The square was built on the site of an old harbor, which was situated in the heart of the small town and was connected to the sea only by a narrow estuary. The new paving of the inner square takes up the urban life with its smooth elliptical surface, the textural passepartout all around sets a geometric pattern, independent of the architectural edges, similar to Plečnik's main square on the Hradcany in Prague.
