The square is surrounded by magnificent palaces, the tower and the cathedral church.

From the observation deck of the town tower,  you can admire the square, Koper, and its surroundings from above.

You can also soak in the square while sipping coffee in one of the oldest coffee shops in Slovenia.

Throughout its history, the square has gone by different names: Plathea comunis, Plathea comunitas, Piazza, Piazza Roma, etc. In 1946, it was named after Marshal Tito, the former president of the SFRY (Social Federalist Republic of Yugoslavia).

A few years later, the square was renamed into “Trg republike”, only to change it back to “Titov trg” in 1956.
