Map of Croatian Istria
Cities and Towns of Croatian Istria

Pula is one of the oldest cities in Istria, having been settled since the Bronze Age over 3,000 years ago. The Romans built the settlement into a cultural center called Pietas Julia. A number of beautifully-preserved Roman buildings survive and stand today amongst 20th and 21st-century buildings. The best-preserved Roman monument in Croatia, the Pula Arena, is located here, as is the Temple of Augustus.

Porec is one of the most popular seaside resort towns in Croatia. The city is over 2,000 years old, and many remnants of the Roman castrum of Parentium are still available for tourists to see today. Porec`s most noteworthy sight is the Euphrasian Basilica, built in the Byzantine architectural style in the sixth century, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Rovinj is one of the most picturesque Adriatic towns, a treasury of cultural and historical monuments. The Old Town is built on a headland which juts out into the sea, and at the top of the headland you can find the beautiful Baroque parish Church of St. Euphemia. It is a hub for those wishing to experience the scenic wonders of the 19 islands of the Rovinj archipelago.
Regions of Croatian Istria
North Istria Coast
The seaside cities, towns, and resorts of the North Istria Coast are comprised of a beautiful mix of buildings, ranging from stone villas to Austro-Hungarian-era grand palaces to state-of-the-art five-star resort complexes. The major cities of the northern coast, from north to south, are Umag, Novigrad, Porec, and Rovinj.
South Istria Coast
The southern Croatian Istrian coast is centered around Pula, Croatian Istria`s largest city, and the seaside towns and villages along the 40-plus miles of coastline to the city`s north, south, and southeast. The towns along the coast are famous for their beaches and breathtaking landscapes, such as the towns of Fazana and Medulin.

CROATIAN ISTRIA

Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea, and roughly three-fifths of the peninsula`s area belongs to Croatia. Much of this region was once ruled by Italy, and in many locales you will see bilingual Croatian and Italian street signs. Foodies and wine connoisseurs will be excited to go into the interior, where farm-to-table cuisine is king. You can find fresh truffles and various vintages along the coast as well, however, just steps from popular beaches and resort complexes. The largest city in Croatian Istria is Pula, home to the Pula Arena, perhaps the best-preserved Roman amphitheatre in the world. Other cities and towns of note include Rovinj, dominated by the Church of St. Euphemia; and Porec, home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Euphrasian Basilica.
