We loved Koper and took a tour of the Praetorian Palace. The young man who showed us around was excellent, very professional and friendly. We were the only people to be taking a tour at that time and so had a tour all to ourselves....More

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.

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.
