Koper will celebrate the new year in Tito Square with the concert by the “Ne me jugat” and “Big Foot Mama” groups.

A stroll through a festively decorated town

Kilometres of twinkling chains of lights, shiny elements with animal motifs and fairytale figures of different shapes and artistic light installations are part of this year’s decorative urban lighting.

Visiting the town in the late afternoon and evening is definitely always a special experience during the Fantazima events.

Following the elegantly decorated Verdijeva ulica street, take a stroll to the central town square – Titov trg square, which dons a fairytale image in the festive season. This year, it is adorned with a magnificent carriage and two glowing balls, and there are wooden houses on the marketplace offering festive gastronomic treats. Continue along Čevljarska ulica street, where the starry lights, atmospheric music and beautifully decorated shop windows lead you to Župančičeva ulica street and Prešernov trg square, where you will see an interesting heart-shaped element that lights up in changing colours when you touch it.

At the Kardeljeva ploščad square, take a look at the large lit-up reindeer and the 15-metre high Christmas tree with festive lights.

In Hlavaty Park near the marketplace, take a closer look at the zoo lights with 3D animal motifs, and on the square between Kavarna Triglav and the Vanilla tea house stop at the big shining bear, admire the golden olive tree at Carpacciov trg square, and meet Santa Claus, snowmen and bears at Ukmarjev trg square.

The festive image of the town is rounded off by embellished arterial roads into the town and the festively disguised roundabouts and the promenade, the Bastion fort, which remains decorated in the form of a gift with a shiny red ribbon and a newly decorated platform or park next to the Muzejski trg square.
