There are many monuments, old palaces, and quite a few churches in Koper.

The main place to start may be Titov trg and most of the roads in the city lead to this main square. It is nice on all sides having a town hall, a cathedral, the Praetorian Palace and the Logia kavarna, Which has a great coffeehouse in an old Venetian building.

Praetorian Palace

The palace is located on the south end of Titov trg and it has a Venetian Gothic and Renaissance style. The palace was constructed in the 15th century built from 2 older houses dating from the 13th century. The Praetorian Palace was the palace of the mayor and the façade of the palace features many shields and coat of arms. There is a great archway leading to the small street of cobbler Čevljarska ulica. Inside the palace you can find the Tourist Information Office.

The lodge is at the northern end of Titov trg and was constructed in 1463 and was renovated in the 17th century with 5 arches facing the square and then there were blackberries added arches That Face Green Street. In 1555 terra cotta statues of the Virgin Mary was erected. Now the ground floor of the building is a posh coffee shop, Which is a great place to have a drink and look over the square.

A great thing to do in Koper is to wander around the old city center, Which is made up of narrow alleys with many small restaurants, cafes, and shops.
