Money and Tipping

Slovenia's currency is the Euro (EUR). In Europe, it is common to round up the bill to leave a small tip (5-10%).

Local Transportation

Since Koper is very small, you can also visit the scenic town of Piran to the west. Buses depart from the train station about 1 km south of the Muda Gate. They leave every 20-30 minutes, the journey time is 45 minutes and the fare is €3.10. Bus schedules here http://www.koper.si/index.php?page=static&item=2002075&tree_root=4

Alternatively, you can take a bus out to Trieste, Italy which takes about an hour. Buses cost €3.10 and do not run on Sunday and Italian Public Holidays.

Slovenia's small but scenic capital of Ljubljana can also be reached by bus (90 minutes) or train (2h 20min).

A Hop-On Hop-Off tour bus runs between the towns of Koper – Izola – Piran – Portorož when cruise ships are docked. Schedule and pricing here http://www.istranka.si/en/shore-excursions-koper/english-hop-on-hop-off/
