Luka Koper has the best strategic position in Europe for exporting European goods to Asia (through the Suez Canal) and importing Asian goods to Europe. The northern Adriatic Sea, where Luka Koper is located, flows deeply into Central Europe. This position always allowed traders to transport goods in a fast and cost-efficient manner along these waterways. The Port of Koper, the Slovenian ‘window to the world’ dates back to the period after World War II, its beginnings a result of a process to find new economic projects to develop the then impoverished coastal area of the Slovenian Istria. The company was founded on 23 May 1957. In 2013, the European Union recognised the strategic importance of the transport route via Koper by including the Port of Koper in its Mediterranean and Baltic-Adriatic corridors.

Koper is a city in southwestern Slovenia, with the other Slovenian coastal towns Ankaran, Izola, Piran, and Portorož, situated along the country's 47-kilometre (29-mile) coastline, in the Istrian Region, approximately five kilometres (3.1 miles) from its border with Italy. Having a unique ecology and biodiversity, it is considered an important national natural resource. The city's Port of Koper is the major contributor to the economy of the eponymous city municipality. With only one percent of Slovenia having a coastline, the influence that the Port of Koper also has on tourism was a factor in Ankaran deciding to leave the municipality in a referendum in 2011 to establish its own. The city is a destination on a number of Mediterranean cruising lines. In 2016, the city expects 65 cruise ship arrivals (for example: Norwegian Spirit, MSC Magnifica, Norwegian Jade, MS Rhapsody of the Seas...) with the season spanning from March to December. Koper is the main urban centre of the Slovenian Istria, with a population of about 25,000. The city of Koper is officially bilingual, with both Slovene and Italian as official languages. Sights in Koper include the 15th-century Praetorian Palace and Loggia in Venetian Gothic style, the 12th-century Carmine Rotunda church, and the Cathedral of St Nazarius, with its 14th-century tower. Koper is also one of the main road entry points into Slovenia from Italy, which lies to the north of the municipality. The main motorway crossing is at Spodnje Škofije to the north of the city of Koper. The motorway continues into Rabuiese and Trieste. Koper also has a rail connection with the capital city, Ljubljana. On the coast, there is a crossing at Lazaret into Lazaretto in Muggia municipality in Trieste province. The Italian border crossing is known as San Bartolomeo. The Italian name of the city was anciently spelled as Capo d'Istria, and as such reported on maps and sources in other European languages. Modern names of the city include: Croatian: Kopar, Serbian: Копар, Kopar, German: Gafers. First established during the Roman Empire, the port of Koper has played an important role in the development of the area. It is among the largest in the region and is one of the most important transit routes for goods heading from Asia to central Europe. In contrast with other European ports, which are managed by port authorities, the activities of the Port of Koper comprise the management of the free zone area, the management of the port area, and the role of terminal operator. Koper's 15th-century Praetorian Palace is located on the city square. It was built from two older 13th-century houses that were connected by a loggia, rebuilt many times, and then finished as a Venetian Gothic palace. Today, it is home to the city of Koper’s tourist office. The city's Cathedral of the Assumption was built in the second half of the 12th century and has one of the oldest bells in Slovenia (from 1333), cast by Master Jakob in Venice. The upper terrace is periodically open and offers a great view of the Bay of Trieste. In the middle of it hangs the Sacra Conversatione painting from 1516, one of the best Renaissance paintings in Slovenia, made by Vittore Carpaccio.

Luka Koper - Port of Koper, presentation to World Congress of Slovenian Honorary Consuls Koper, Slovenia, October 2016 presentations by: Dragomir Matić President of the Management Board Luka Koper Andrej Cah Sales & Marketing Director Luka Koper Port of Koper (Luka Koper): - is a transit port as two thirds of cargo going through Koper go to European countries outside of Slovenia - It is the largest container terminal in the northern Adriatic, container throughput in 2015: 790,734. Containers is the fastest growing segment at Koper. - It is the 3rd largest car terminal in the Mediterranean, car throughput in 2015: 607,333 units - 2015 was a record breaking year in cargo handled - almost 60% of all cargo at Koper is moved by rail, the rest by truck. This is quite unique in Europe as at other ports most of the cargo is moved by truck. (A second railway line at Koper is currently in discussion). Countries around Slovenia are the major markets for Koper on the European continent. They include southern Germany, Austria, northern Italy, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic , southwest Poland, and western Romania. Major overseas markets for Koper are countries in the Mediterranean basin, Middle East, and the Far East Koper has a significant advantage, over North European ports, in shipping time between Europe and the Far East, offering 5 to 7 days saving. Customers also benefit with shorter transport time on the European continent. By using shorter transport route this reduces CO2 emissions. In March 2016, Drewry published the Best Route market study for containerized transport to South Germany. The study analyzed the transport of one 40-ft container from Shanghai to Munich through various ports (Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp, Genova, La Spezia, Koper, and Trieste). Koper resulted as the best option for shippers with time sensitive cargo. Koper offers the shortest and fasted route and this means a cost saving for customers. Koper is a multi-purpose port covering twelve terminals – Containers and RO-RO, Break-bulk, Liquid bulk, Project cargoes, Passengers, Perishables, Cars, Alumina and other minerals, Coal and iron ore, Cereals and fodder, Timber, and Livestock.

Portorož; Italian: Portorose, literally "Port of Roses") is a Slovenian Adriatic seaside resort and spa town located in the Municipality of Piran in southwestern Slovenia. Its modern development began in the late 19th century with the vogue for the first health resorts. In the early 20th century Portorož became one of the grandest seaside resorts in Adriatic, along with Abbazia, Lido and Grado, then as part of the Austrian Littoral. It is now one of Slovenia's major tourist areas. Located in the centre is the Hotel Palace, once one of the most important resorts for the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, and currently one of the finest hotels between Venice and Dubrovnik. The settlement and its surrounding areas are served by Portorož International Airport which is located in the nearby village of Sečovlje. The history of the settlement is directly connected to that of the neighboring town of Piran, with Illyrian settlers already living there in the prehistoric era. They were followed by Celtic tribes, which were later conquered and annexed by the Roman Empire in 178 B.C. Archaeological finds suggest that in this period many farms and villas, also named villae rusticae, were built in the area. A large development of the area followed only after the demise of the empire, with enlargement of the number of settlers seeking shelter from attacks by the Barbarians. (Wikipedia)

Piran (Pirano) Slovenia. Slovenian Istria. Timelapse & hyperlapse video of Pirano. Piran (Piran, or in the Italian manner of Pirano) is a small ancient town located on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia. The history of Piran is connected with the Roman Empire, and then with the Venetian Republic. In fact, until the 20th century it was part of Italy, and Italian is a second official language of the region. On the main square of the city of Piran a monument to the famous composer and violinist Giuseppe Tartini is erected. Tartini was born here. It is interesting that the central square of Piran until the 19th century was the inner port of the city. Later this part of the port was covered and then the central square of the city appeared. The main attraction of Piran is the narrow ancient streets. Despite the fact that there are no beaches in Piran, there are steps to the water, where you can go down and swim. Water in the sea and even in the port is crystal clear. Among the places that must be visited, it is worth noting the walls of the old town with a magnificent view on the roofs of Piran. It is also worth going up to the church of St. George (Church of St George). It is on a hill with a great view on the city. By the way, below the church there is a small pebble beach, where you can comfortably sunbathe and swim. Пиран (Piran, или на итальянский манер Pirano) - небольшой старинный городок, расположенный на адриатическом побережье Словении. История Пирана напрямую связанна с Римской империей, а затем и с Венецианской республикой. По сути, до 20 века это была часть Италии, а итальянский второй официальный язык региона. В результате Второй Мировой войны этот регион был аннексирован Югославией. Большая часть населения была вынуждена покинуть свои дома и эмигрировать. С 1991 года регион является частью Словении. На главной площади города Пиран возведен памятник известному композитору и скрипачу Джузеппе Тартини(Giuseppe Tartini), который родился тут. Интересно, что центральная площадь Пирана до 19 века была внутренним портом города. Тут швартовались лодки и корабли. Позднее эта часть порта была засыпана и тут появилась центральная площадь города. На площади Тартини проходят два основные городские фестиваля. В апреле - Фестиваль Соли (регион известен производством соли), который знаменует начала сезона добычи соли. Летом на центральной площади Пирана проходит фестиваль камерной музыки - Фестиваль Тартини. Безусловно, главная достопримечательность Пирана это узкие старинные улочки, по которым стоит прогуляться и при этом наслаждаться шумом моря и криками чаек. Несмотря на то, что в Пиране нет пляжей, тут обустроены ступеньки к воде, по которым можно спустится и искупаться. Вода в море и даже в порту кристально чистая. Среди обязательных для посещения мест стоит отметить стены старого города, откуда открывается великолепный вид на крыши старого города. Стоимость - 1 Евро с персоны. Безусловно, также, стоит подняться к церкви св. Георгия (Church of St George). Она находится на холме и отсюда также можно наслаждаться видом на город. В теплое время года у гостей города есть возможность подняться на колокольню прилегающую к церкви. Стоимость подъема 1 Евро. Кстати, внизу под церковью есть небольшой галечный пляж, где можно комфортно позагорать и покупаться. Huge thanks to Adria Airways for supporting this trip to Slovenia.

Vacation travel video about destination Koper in Istria. Koper is a major harbour city in Istria which is located on the Slovenian Riviera.The old town can be entered through the last of the twelve gates of the city’s former defensive wall. A stone coat of arms, various reliefs and inscriptions highlight the long history of the city in which for five hundred years Venetian rule shaped its destiny. An archway in the Praetorian Palace leads to a classic Venetian square, the Titov Trg which dates back to the fifteenth century. The Piazza is one of the most beautiful Venetian squares of the entire Adriatic region and the cathedral which frames the square has numerous architectural styles. Brollo, an area just beyond the centre of the city, served as a collecting basin for rainwater which was drawn by two wells from a cistern below. The Gothic, Fontico, was used for the storage of surplus grain which was distributed to the people in years of hardship. Today Koper is Slovenia’s window to the world and the country’s only seaport. -------------- Watch more travel videos ► https://goo.gl/MXPgSs Join us.

Trieste About is a city and seaport in northeastern Italy. It is situated towards the end of a narrow strip of land lying between the Adriatic Sea and Italy's border with Slovenia, which lies almost immediately south, east and north of the city. Trieste is located at the head of the Gulf of Trieste and throughout history it has been influenced by its location at the crossroads of Germanic, Latin and Slavic cultures. In 2009, it had a population of about 205,000 and it is the capital of the autonomous region Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trieste province. Trieste was one of the oldest parts of the Habsburg Monarchy from 1382 until 1918. In the 19th century, it was the most important port of one of the Great Powers of Europe. As a prosperous seaport in the Mediterranean region, Trieste became the fourth largest city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (after Vienna, Budapest, and Prague). In the fin-de-siecle period, it emerged as an important hub for literature and music. However, the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Trieste's union to Italy after World War I led to some decline of its "mittleuropean" cultural and commercial importance. Even if it enjoyed an economic revival during the 1930s, after WWII it suffered because of the border changes and, throughout the Cold War, Trieste was a peripheral city of western Europe. Today, the city is in one of the richest regions of Italy, and has been a great center for shipping, through its port (Port of Trieste), Shipbuilding and financial services.SOURCE:WIKIPEDIA
