Koper Shore Excursions

Muda Gate

Muda Gate

The impressive Muda Gate was the original gate to the fortified old town, which in medieval times was separated from the mainland. Continue from the Gate by the atmospheric Zupanciceva and Cevljarska streets to reach the town’s main square Titov trg which boasts two of the town’s main attractions, the cathedral of St Mary Of the Assumption, and the Praetorian Palace.


St Mary Of The Assumption

St Mary Of The Assumption

The St Mary Of The Assumption dates back to the 12th century and features a harmonious mix of Gothic and Renaissance styles. The cathedral possesses two 16th century treasures, a large altarpiece ‘Madonna with Child on the Throne of Saints’ by Vittore Carpacco, and the stone sarcophagus of St Nazari. You can climb the 204 steps of the cathedral’s bell tower for a superb view over the town and Adriatic sea.


Praetorian Palace

Praetorian Palace

The wonderfully ornate Praetorian Palace was the official residence of the city’s governor during the Venetian Republic. Today the palace houses the tourist information office which offers free tours of the palace including the city council meeting chamber.


Koper Regional Museum

Koper Regional Museum

Housed in the beautiful Belgramoni-Tacco Palace, the Koper Regional Museum chronicles the times of Koper and the surrounding Istrian region. Exhibits include archaeological finds, artworks, a weapon collection, sculptures to name but a few. The museum is a short distance east of Titov trg along Kidriceva.


Piran

Piran
