Poreč is a town located in the heart of the western coast of Istria. A town of culture, tourism, sport and entertainment, it has been recognised and awarded for the beauty of its public spaces and its cleanliness many times over. It has a long and turbulent history which nurtures remnants of its past in the heart of its old town. From Ancient Roman times to the present day more than two thousand years have passed, and the streets of Poreč continue to preserve their original architecture and numerous cultural and historical monuments. Of these we can especially note the Euphrasian Basilica

Every summer tourists and visitors from around the globe come to Poreč to sunbathe or sleep in the shade, read a book, walk along the shore or just watch the sunset.
