Koper

A bridge between the Mediterranean and alpine regions of Slovenia, Koper is a small town with big appeal.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Wine Tours & Tastings and Lepa Vida Boutique Winery. Get in touch with nature at Scuba & Snorkeling and Zusterna Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Koper side-trips: Branik Castle (in Branik), Winery Tilia Estate (in Dobravlje) and Boris Lisjak Winery (in Dutovlje). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower, learn about winemaking at Rojac Istra Slovenija Winery, make a trip to Walls of Piran, and look for all kinds of wild species at Škocjanski Zatok Nature Reserve.

Plan trip to Koper with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Dublin, Ireland to Koper is an approximately 10-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Dublin in July; daily highs in Koper reach 35°C and lows reach 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to drive to Bled.
