Koper (Italian: Capodistria) is a coastal town and municipality and the largest commercial port in Slovenia, on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Formerly an island in the Adriatic Sea, it was connected to the mainland by a causeway (1825) and drainage works. It was known to the Romans as Capris (3rd century bc–6th century ad). From 932 until 1797 Koper was linked to the Venetian Republic, and in 1186 it became a free commune. During that period, Koper also had commercial interests in nearby Austrian provinces. As Capodistria it became the capital of the province of Istria. Koper’s narrow streets and old houses still reflect the Venetian influence. On Titov Trg, the main square, stand the Cathedral of the Assumption and several Venetian palaces, including the Praetorian Palace, which dates from the mid-15th century. Koper was held by Napoleonic France (1797–1813), then by the Austrian Empire (1813–1918), and then by Italy.
Koper is a major port for the landlocked countries of central Europe (e.g., Austria, Hungary, and Slovakia). The town is officially bilingual, with both Slovene and Italian as official languages.
