Koper
A bridge between the Mediterranean and alpine regions of Slovenia, Koper is a small town with big appeal.
Koper is known for historic sites, shopping, and wineries. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Tartini Square, walk around Park Pietro Coppo, pause for some serene contemplation at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. George's Church.

To see photos, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Koper day trip planning site.

Siem Reap, Cambodia to Koper is an approximately 22.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Siem Reap to Koper due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Siem Reap in August, things will get a bit cooler in Koper: highs are around °C and lows about °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Bovec.
