Historical building with a rich history from the 13th until the 17th century. Very small town, however it has a beautiful central square!

Very beautiful building in gothic Venetian style, located in a Tito's square, main square or Koper's old town. It is realy a stunning piece of architecture.

Praetorian Palace is a stunning building from the 15th century combining two 13th century buildings. It has be rebuilt several times. Lovely Gothic architecture. Unfortunately Koper introduced their Olympic athletes the day we were there (not sorry they were introduced) and there was a huge stage in front of it along with other things hiding the building a bit.

The palace is very pretty and a must see, as it is located in the center of the city where one must visit. It is easily accessible even for the non-walkers, as there is an elevator from the seaside.

There is really nothing special about Praetorian Palace, but I was just astonished by Koper center itself. Just enjoy it. Best italian town in Slovenia :)

We stopped by Koper on our way to Ljubljana. It is a small little old town with its own charm. Very relaxing to walk around.

Outside a beautiful building and inside a very helpful and informative tourist information staff. Enquired about local buses and drew on map where to go (only a few minutes walk) and handed over a timetable in English, all with a smile!
