Location Fonda Apartments Koper
The Fonda Apartments Koper are located in a typical old town house, renovated in 2018, at Pristaniška ulica, one of the main promenade streets surrounding the southwestern part of the Koper old city centre. Pristaniška ulica is primarily intended for pedestrians, since the one-way traffic was regulated recent years. The street is a popular meeting point for locals as they carry out their everyday errands and shopping. Both locals and tourists can enjoy a variety of catering establishments, boutiques, bookstores, shops, tourist agencies, and a city market with a large selection of seasonal local produce and a fish market. Therefore, each guest will be able to find something for themselves in the immediate vicinity of the apartments.
What to do in Koper
The city of Koper
The old city centre and sightseeing spots
The accommodation in the Fonda Apartments Koper offers our guests a great starting point for a walk down the famous streets of the historic centre of the city of Koper and historical, architectural and cultural sightseeing. The Titov trg square with the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Praetorian Palace and the Loggia Palace are only 350m away from the apartments, while the Koper Regional Museum is 500m away. And you are only a few minutes’ walk away from other famous squares, palaces and other important cultural monuments that have preserved the basic characteristics of the Middle Ages and are definitely worth visiting.
Swimming in the sea
Nearby beaches and swimming pools
The accommodation in the Fonda Apartments Koper offers an excellent starting point for a walk to the sea, which is only 300m away, or swimming at the city beach, only 600m away. In addition to the pleasant walk (1.7km), guests can enjoy swimming at the Žusterna swimming pool with an open Olympic-size swimming pool.
An active break
Nearby sports and recreational parks, hiking and cycling routes
For those looking for a more active break despite the vicinity of the sea, there is a popular and modern sports park Bonifika, which is only 300 metres away from the Fonda Apartments Koper. It offers tennis courts, basketball courts, handball courts, soccer fields, outdoor fitness, outdoor fitness for the elderly, children's playground, drinking fountains, refreshing steam showers, public toilets and parking areas. There is a running track around the sports park, which is exactly 1km long.
We recommend a relaxing walk along the well-kept walking paths and parks in Koper to all of our guests. We highly recommend a walk through the new urban park and walk along the Semedelska cesta, where you can walk right by the sea all the way to the suburbs of Semedela, then continue your walk to Žusterna or take a stroll along coast to the neighbouring town of Izola.
Cyclists can ride to Parenzana, an organized cycling route that leads past Koper along the former railway line from Trieste (Italy) to Poreč (Croatia). Cycling this route is a unique cycling experience that offers cyclists a tour with Istrian attractions and towns and treats them to clean air and unspoiled nature.
The Istrian countryside
A trip to Padna
We recommend our guests visit the nearby Istrian villages. If the guests wish to experience the feel of the countryside offered by the nearby Istrian villages, and to taste authentic Istrian homemade dishes or buy locally grown produce and artisan products, they can visit one of the most beautiful authentic Istrian villages, Padna. Padna, surrounded with endless olive tree plantations, is 13km or a 15-minute drive away from the Fonda Apartments Koper. In Padna, the villagers organise a visit to the village market with the possibility of tasting Istrian homemade delicacies. We also recommend you visit the Božidar Jakac Gallery and the Church of St Blaise.
Visit Slovenia, Croatia and Italy
The accommodation in Fonda Apartments Koper is an excellent starting point for day trips around Slovenia or to nearby Italy and Croatia. Due to the possibility of a free parking space in the immediate vicinity of the apartments (15m from the house) and the proximity of the main bus and train stations (1300m), guests can take longer trips by car or by a public transport. We especially recommend you visit the neighbouring coastal towns of Ankaran with a bathing area, Izola, Piran and the tourist town of Portorož, as well as the capital city of Ljubljana (105km or 1 hour’s drive). In addition, the most famous karst cave in Slovenia – the Postojna Cave – is 60km away, while the Škocjan Caves Park is only 35km or a 30-minute drive away. The nearest Italian city, Trieste, is 21km away, while the Croatian border is 16km away.
