The village is very nice, and the people renovate their homes in the Istrian style. The core of the village is characterised by the courtyards and well-maintained streets. You will also find wine cellars, which the locals are very proud of.
On 15 September 1947, a block between the zone A and the zone B of the Free Territory of Trieste was established in Cepki on the basis of the Paris Peace Treaty.
