Description

The Gulf of Piran or Piran Bay (Slovene: Piranski zaliv, Croatian: Piranski zaljev or Savudrijska vala, Italian: Baia di Pirano) is located in the northern part of the Adriatic Sea, and is a part of the Gulf of Trieste. It is between Rt Madona at N and Rt Saudrija.

It was named after the town of Piran, and its shores are shared by Croatia and Slovenia. It is delimited by a line connecting Cape Savudrija (Savudrijski rt) in the south to the Cape Madona (Rt Madona) in the north and measures around 19 square kilometres (7.3 sq mi). Since the 1990s, the name Bay of Savudrija (Savudrijska vala) has also been used in Croatia.

It has two coves, one of which houses the port Fazan Portoroz, and that of Secolvje.

La baie de Piran, aussi appelée golfe de Piran, est une petite baie de la partie sud du golfe de Trieste, lui-même situé à l'extrémité septentrionale de la mer Adriatique, en Méditerranée. Elle est comprise entre Rt Madona au N et Rt Savudrija.

Si elle doit son nom à la commune de Piran, située en Slovénie, elle est également bordée par la Croatie et est à ce titre parcourue par une frontière maritime internationale, la frontière entre la Croatie et la Slovénie.

Elle comprend deux anses, celle de Fazan qui abrite le port de Portoroz, et celle de Secolvje.
