The gateway to intercontinental adventures

As Slovenia’s largest coastal town, Koper is the gateway to an array of intercontinental adventures. For instance, crossing the border into the Italian coffee capital of Trieste for a cappuccino at Caffe San Marco. (That way we can say to our friends back home, “Yeah, we’re just off to Italy for a cup of coffee.”)

Or switching grounds, so to speak, trekking through the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Skocjan Caves, which features the largest underground canyon in the world and is only 30 minutes away from Koper. Or touring the Slovenian capital city of Ljubljana, truly one of Europe’s secret gems—but not for long, since Lonely Planet recently ranked Ljubljana at #2 on its Best in Europe list.

Then of course, there are the charms of Koper itself, especially in the Old Town, with historic sites like the 12th century St. Mary’s of the Assumption Cathedral, the Praetorian Palace, and the beautiful square of Titov Trg. What are you going to do?!
