In 2018, Koper received a silver medal “Slovenia Green Destination”, considered to be an internationally renowned medal awarding both quality and sustainability, while also invoking a promise for a green future. In 2021 Koper recived the award Slovenia Green Destination Gold.

In the municipality of Koper, we also take care of our health and a higher level of quality of life in the framework of the “Koper, a healthy town” project.

While the green countryside surrounding Koper is intertwined with various biking and hiking trails where visitors can stop and get to know the Istrian culture, cuisine, and local inhabitants throughout the year, the town provides a wonderful backdrop for the visitors to rest under treetops, in parks and at the coast while enjoying the sea air and admiring the blue sea.

In its heart, the town hides numerous secret gardens. Usually, they are open to visitors once a year, as part of the “Open Gardens of Koper” (Odprti vrtovi Kopra) event.
