Koper is an ancient Mediterranean town that lies on the northern coast of the Istrian peninsula where the Adriatic Sea cuts deeply into the heart of Central Europe. Koper's rich Venetian Renaissance tradition is very well preserved and its many beautiful squares and architecture bear witness to its long history as an important city of the 1,000 year old republic. Stroll around the hidden squares and feel the atmosphere that makes this city alive. The capital town of Istria had been founded on the maritime trade and today this pulse is provided by the port of Koper, founded 50 years ago.
At Tito Square, you’ll find the Cathedral and the Praetor’s Palace, together with other important landmarks. Learn about the cultural heritage during your visit to the Regional Museum and have a taste of some local products and wine at a typical restaurant. Upon visiting the important sights of Koper, your tour ends in Carpaccio Square, where the great Venetian master spent the last days of his life. Once the tour has completed, you may return to the port at your leisure.
