The latter is shaped by 104 settlements, as well as many cycling, hiking and thematic routes, which stretch from the sea, through the hills of Istria and all the way to the Karst edge, and are an excellent starting point for discovering the peculiarities of the Mediterranean Slovenia. This is home to unforgettable sea views, extensive vineyards, olive groves, orchards and green fields.

Typical villages give this place a special charm, in which we find Istrian stone houses with fountains, as well as typical Karst homesteads with closed courtyards. The countryside of Koper is also home to different castles, fortresses, as well as other architectural and natural pearls.

The selection is really rich and because short distances between places enable you to visit more attractions in one day, we offer you a selection of some must-see villages below – perhaps you discover your new favourite corner of the Slovenian Istria along the way.
