On Tito Square in the old town. It’s a beautiful place in a lovely setting. Adults enjoyed but the children weren’t as interested. Worth a visit.

Along with the other historical buildings on Tito Square it is a visual feast. Unusual styling sits nicely and compliments the other buildings. Only a 5 minute walk from the port terminal and on a set route around this lovely old town.

This was a very historic visit. The staff was very helpful and helped people with mobility issues avoid steps. There were a lot of photo stops. The staff helped to explain the history. This is worth a stop and nice for Koper.

Koper is wonderful - my favorite of Slovenian Istria and the Palace is a microcosm of the area's varied history - renaissance, gothic, baroque, passed from one ruling nation to another. Definitely take the guided tour.
