Carpaccio square
Apr. 2019 • Solo
The Carpaccio square is named after the Venetian painter Vittore Carpaccio, who supposedly lived and worked in Koper in the 16th century. The square is closed from the seaside by the Taverna, a former salt warehouse of the Venetian republic. Placed in the middle of the Carpaccio Square is St. Justine's column, dedicated to the participation of the people of Koper in the battle of Lepanto in 1571.

The food dish is named after the artist.

Carpaccio the artist, is famous for his special red paint. This colour is very similar the thinly sliced raw beef dish, invented in 1950 by Giuseppe Cipriani from Harry's Bar in Venice.

The house where he lived is a protected monument.

Beautifully renovated square
Oct. 2018 • Couples
The square is named after a Venetian family, some member of whom supposedly lived here during the time that Venice controlled this part of Slovenia. It was connected with the salt trade which dominated Slovenia at the time. The square is quite small but has some lovely colourful houses and was decorated for christmas when we were there in October (we were told this was because there was an election coming and local councillors were trying to win votes by brightening the place up early). The square is next to the boat marina, and the old town is only about 5 minutes by foot away.

Nice little ancient square. Lots of history. Close to the marina, separated with the huge building.
Easy accessable, with some restaurants.

Square overlooking the sea on the west side, full of ancient memories
Sep. 2017 • Couples
Situated on the western end of the historical part of Koper / Capodistria, this square is separated from the sea by the huge porch that used to be the civic salt warehouse (a significant clue of the importance that this commodity once had for the Istrian coast towns).
Actually, the "sea" here is a crowded marina, which greatly diminishes the charm of the place.
On a corner of the square there is the so-called "Carpaccio House", belonging to the notorious Venetian family, and in which traditionally the most famous member of the family is said to be born, the painter Vittore. No document actually proves that he is truly born here; but tradition, though fake, has its influence.
