Picturesque

The length of the cathedral in the picturesque center of Koper is wonderful - on the border of different worlds - Venetian, Balkan, and a touch of Austria - it is quite big story!

Nice church in the centre of Koper. The Cathedral is from the 12th century and the bell tower holds one of the oldest bells in Slovenia.

Pretty decent views of Koper! There is an interesting permanent exhibition in the tower, some reading on the town history as you ascend. If you buy the Koper card, you get in for free. Saving of 2-3euro pp.

Great view from the top! If it is a clear sunny you can see far away. The best time to visit is around 7 8 pm when the sun goes down in the summer to see the orange sky.
