Koper is the largest city on the Slovenian coast of Istria. It is the seat of the Municipality of Koper and has two official languages, which in addition to Slovenian is Italian. The only port of Slovenia is the Port of Koper.
The settlement was formed on the island and later extended to the reservoir of Badasevica and Rizana and the hilly slopes. The island was connected to the mainland in the 19th century. Koper became an important economic center of the coast after the signing of the London Memorandum in 1954. In parallel with economic growth, culture, health and education have developed. The image of the city was greatly changed by the large port complex, the new suburban residential quarters (Zusterna, Salara, Semedela) and the business center. The old town with many cultural monuments, however, preserved the basic characteristics of the Middle Ages. There are picturesque palm trees along Pristaniska Ulica Street that attract many views. The Koper Tavern, Hotel Koper, Koper Market and more are located in this area.
Tavern Koper is a former salt warehouse, which today is the venue for the most interesting events in Koper. At the main Koper promenade on the Market, visitors can buy fresh homemade vegetables, fruits and other products.
