On Tito Square in the old town. It’s a beautiful place in a lovely setting. Adults enjoyed but the children weren’t as interested. Worth a visit.

The Praetorian Palace closes the south side of the central city square. Koper was supposed to receive its first city palace in 1254. More detailed information about the formation of the city market is about the years 1268/69. With the greatest building interventions they started...More

Along with the other historical buildings on Tito Square it is a visual feast. Unusual styling sits nicely and compliments the other buildings. Only a 5 minute walk from the port terminal and on a set route around this lovely old town.

Visited here on a day trip to Koper, it was a nice square playing live music which added to the atmosphere.

This was a very historic visit. The staff was very helpful and helped people with mobility issues avoid steps. There were a lot of photo stops. The staff helped to explain the history. This is worth a stop and nice for Koper.

Koper is wonderful - my favorite of Slovenian Istria and the Palace is a microcosm of the area's varied history - renaissance, gothic, baroque, passed from one ruling nation to another. Definitely take the guided tour.
