This was a very historic visit. The staff was very helpful and helped people with mobility issues avoid steps. There were a lot of photo stops. The staff helped to explain the history. This is worth a stop and nice for Koper.

Koper is wonderful - my favorite of Slovenian Istria and the Palace is a microcosm of the area's varied history - renaissance, gothic, baroque, passed from one ruling nation to another. Definitely take the guided tour.

We were privileged to have a private guided tour, as there were no other visitors, and it couldn't have been better. Shorter than an hour but with a lot of interesting information and in a very pleasant atmosphere. Entrance through the tourist info point.
