      Koper Guided Walking Tour

      Koper, Slovenia
      From (USD) $134 Per Adult / $94 Per Child
      Highlights
      • Downtown Koper: A relatively untouched melange of history and culture, this delightful marina town was already ancient when the Romans called it their own.
      • Cathedral of the Assumption: Climb the bell tower of Slovenia's largest church for spectacular views of city, sea, and countryside; see the paintings by legendary Venetian artist Vittore Carpaccio.
      • Praetorian Palace: Dating back to the 15th century, this turreted mix of Venetian Gothic and Renaissance architecture, now the town hall, is the proud symbol of Koper.
      About This Koper Tour

      Koper is in no hurry – it has been there for millennia, known to (and fought over by) Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Franks, and Avars, outliving peoples forgotten by history to continue its soothing seaside existence. Only three miles from the Italian border, this bilingual city is home to a bustling modern port, but the old part of town moves to the slower rhythms that come with time and patience.

      In Tito Square, among cafe patrons sipping coffee under colonnades, the Cathedral of the Assumption is testament to that patience, having recently completed a lengthy renovation. Finished in the mid-18th century, its Baroque decor complements a Renaissance bell tower on a Gothic building built on Romanesque foundations. Directly opposite are the deeply etched white towers of the Praetorian Palace, its statue of Justice holding silent court over the square.

      Across the street is another Gothic-style governmental building, Loggia Palace. It's worn white walls gleam cheerfully in the daylight. Its exterior is embellished with many coats of arms, hinting at the various cultures and empires that have left their imprint on Slovenia.

      By the time you make it to the stone archways of Carpaccio Square, you'll have seen a millennium's worth of Koper. Those archways were once one of the few ways into this walled town. It's a lot easier to get in now, but it can be pretty hard to say goodbye.

      Who's in charge this year?

      Like other important cities here in the Istrian Peninsula, Koper was fought over frequently by opposing kingdoms. At one point, three different empires controlled the city, in only 10 years’ time. Between 1796 and 1806: the Venetian Republic ended (in 1797), and then the Habsburg house took control until 1805, when Napoleon's France claimed the city.
