The Cruise Terminal is just a minutes walk from the wonderful Tito's square with its Cathedral, Venetian Praetorian Palace and Loggia from 13th century as well as old town cafes and restaurants. The history of Koper goes back to the times of the Middle Bronze Age, 1500 years B.C., passengers and tourists can enjoy and visit different museums, galleries and churches, all within walking distance.
