Koper is a city in southwestern Slovenia, it’s only 21 km away from Trieste (Italy), and it’s the major port of Slovenia.
The city is full of buildings in Venetian style, proof of centuries of domination under the Republic of Venice. In ancient times it was just an island separated from the mainland by swamps, until when, in the middle of 19th century, it was connected to the coast with enormous reclamation jobs.
The old town center of Koper was almost completely renovated, with new initiatives to give back glory to the antique artworks. In the last 30 years the city had a remarkable port and industrial development, being forced to sacrifice the originality of its landscape, expanding on the mainland with residential neighborhoods.
Very typical of the town center of Koper is the Cevljarska Ulica , a road that connects the marina to the elegant Pretorian Palace.
Besides its beauty left by artists from Venice, this has, since always, been the most commercial road with shops and boutiques.
