Koper is the biggest town on the Slovenian coast. It has long history and that's why beautiful old town centre. It used to lie on the island. Later sea was pushed away so there is no island anymore. The most beautiful square is Titov trg (Tito's square) where you can see loggia, cathedral, church tower, Pretorian palace and other big buildings. Where ever you will walk inside the old town centre of Koper you will see old beautiful buildings and other nice details that shows us reach history of Koper.

Koper offers everything you need for modern life. Most roads around the town are well developed with many rondos. Around the old town you will find a lot of shopping centres. Along the coast are nice walking promenades. There is also small beach that can be quite crowded in summer months.

Koper doesn't have so much hotels but anyway you can find some hotels and other accommodation options there.

Koper has also one of the biggest ports in that part of Europe where each day big ships convey their shipment.

Beside Koper there are also other towns worth to see on Slovenia coast like Piran, Izola or Portoroz. Hinterland of Koper offers you nice walking or biking trails, old castles, churches, villages, etc. Not far away from Koper is Trieste (Italy).

Portoroz is one of the most interesting towns on Slovenia coast and for sure most touristic. It can be said also as Slovenia Monaco. Portoroz has many hotels, apartments, rooms so you will not get a problem to find suitable for you. Koper, Izola and Piran have nice old town centres but Portoroz is more modern with big beach and road avenue a bit away. In Portoroz you will find many bars where you can drink beer, wine, coctails and of course other drinks. Alaya is one of the most popular for night life. In Portoroz you will not find some really special cultural-historical sights but at least from distance it is worth to see Kempinski Palace Hotel. For music and other events you should visti Portoroz Auditorium. The most interesting town on the beach Piran is not far away so you can even walk from Portoroz to Piran almost all the way along the sea.
