A bridge between the Mediterranean and alpine regions of Slovenia, Koper is a small town with big appeal.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Church of St. Francis of Assisi and Strunjan Nature Reserve. Your inner history buff will appreciate Piran Minorite Monastery and Church of St. Bernardine. There's much more to do: do a tasting at Vinakoper, stroll through Svetilnik Beach, admire the landmark architecture of Benečanka Venetian House, and make a trip to Piazza Tito.
