The ambience on the top of the St. George church's bell tower returns us to the year 1608.

The church bells are from different time periods - the oldest one has rung through the atmosphere of the town of Piran from before the time Columbus had "discovered" America.

Piran is old Mediterranean town which is situated at the cape of the Piran Peninsula in Slovene Istria. The town is actually one large museum with medieval architecture and s rich cultural heritage. Narrow streets and tight houses display the charming atmosphere of the town.

Behind the scene : how this panorama was made

On the March 18th was nice sunny and warm day - I was wearing T-shirt over the day, the very next day started to snow and it lasted till the Wednesday 21st. We had the first real snow in Ljubljana this winter - the last day actually. Wednesday was cloudy inland but on the seaside were moments with the sun but not really the right time for outdoor VRs.
