A bridge between the Mediterranean and alpine regions of Slovenia, Koper is a small town with big appeal.
Explore Koper's surroundings by going to Postojna (Predjama Castle, Postojna Cave, &more), Church of St. Daniel (in Štanjel) and Jewish Cemetery (in Nova Gorica). The adventure continues: explore the fascinating underground world of Škocjan Caves, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. George's Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower, and examine the collection at Koper Regional Museum.
