This week, our Travel pics series is K for Koper.
It’s a beautiful city in a beautiful region – with the Julian Alps as a backdrop to the north-east.
They are a mountain range that make up part of the Southern Limestone alps, running from Italy into Slovenia.
Not as spectacular as their Northern cousins, in Austria and France, and Switzerland – but they are still quite pretty and provide a lovely backdrop to photos along the northern stretch of the Adriatic coast and the Gulf of Venice.
Named after Julius Caesar, who founded a town nearby across the Italian border from Koper, the Julian Alps are mostly characterised by high, rugged peaks, deeply carved valleys and giant limestone walls above them.
In fact, while they do have snowy peaks, the mountains are actually white limestone and contain the highest peak in Slovenia.
