Abstract

Koper is a historical mediaeval city dating from Venetian times and also a major port on the Adriatic Sea in southern Slovenia in the region known as Istria. It can be described as a national nerve centre due to its port and logistic role, which in turn also makes it one of the eight functional regional centres in Slovenia. As a regional nucleus, it influences economic, social and spatial development and is in turn perceived as a cultural centre and a focal point for the region. It is the smallest of the case studies by far, having an urban population of only 24,000 people (more in the municipality as a whole), although it presents some unique aspects not found in the other case studies.
