Titov Trg, Sightseeing in the Heart of the City

One of the historic spots in Koper is Titov trg or Tito Square. The square was functioning as a market from around the 15th century, and it was one of the most beautiful markets in the area.

The square is framed by the historically and culturally significant buildings, among which is the Assumption Cathedral. The Cathedral was built in the 12th century; however, it went through reconstruction several times, particularly after 1460, when the earthquake damaged it. There were also changes in the 18th century. The tower of the cathedral is of 4 floors, and the bell up thete is estimatedly from 1333, which makes it one of the oldest in the country.

I am afraid to misinform you, but this might be the University building:

And this is Pretorska Palača, which is probably in every info page about Koper. Its history dates back to the 15th century, and the style of the building can be described as Venetian Gothic. I pictured something like this in my head, while reading stories about the Middle Age. You travelling in time simply by looking at the building…
