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
with its distinctive mosaics dating from the 6th century which UNESCO recognised and protected as a world heritage site in 1997. Today the centre of the old city is located on this small peninsula. The silhouette of a city is visible in the geometrically symmetrical placement of the streets. The City of Poreč has preserved this appearance with the main streets Cardo Maximus and Decumanus as well as the centrally located Forum. 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.
The whole old city centre is a living cultural monument. The facades of numerous city palaces will reveal the history of their construction to you through various stylistic and historical periods. In numerous records and literature Poreč is called a city of mosaics thanks to the culture founded by the Euphrasiana, a basilica in whose diocese the museum of church art and archaeological remains of earlier churches are housed.
