Koper, Slovenia


Backed by hills of olive groves and vineyards, this historic port is a gateway to medieval Old Towns, seaside resorts and picturesque coastal villages. Travel through scenic countryside to Slovenia's stylish capital of Ljubljana. Koper's main sight of interest is its Venetian-era old city, aptly named Old Town. Its main street, Cevljarska is no more than two or three meters wide in some places and is packed from dawn to dusk. Cevljarska will lead you towards the town's main square, Titov Trg (Tito Square), which is dominated by the bell tower of the St. Mary's of the Assumption Cathedral. Perhaps the most astonishing building on the square is the hacienda-like Praetorian Palace, the seat of the city's governor during the Venetian Republic.
