First time in Istria? Looking for historical adventure?
My name is Igor and I've been a tour guide and an entertainer here in Rovinj for quite some years now. With my vast local knowledge I can be the perfect friend to help you explore the buzzing resorts on the western coast of Istria, or the medieval-looking hilltop towns of the norther part of its north, together with their customs and interesting traditions. Come with me on a memorable tour of the regions turbulent past, relaxed present and exciting future, and experience the real Istria. I speak Croatian, English and German. Looking forward to meet you all soon!
Best regards, Igor Brajković
Rovinj (Rovigno in Italian) is coastal Istria’s star attraction. Rovinj also remains one of the last true Mediterranean fishing ports. Wooded hills and low-rise hotels surround the old town, which is webbed with steep cobbled streets and piazzas. It's one of the most popular cities across the Adriatic.
The Church of St. Euphemia is a Baroque church located in the heart of the historic part of Rovinj,dominating the town.
Balbi's Arch (Croatian: Balbijev luk), in Rovinj, the arch leads to Grisia Street. It stands on the site of the old town gate.
Marshal Tito Square (Croatian: Trg maršala Tita) is named after Josip Broz Tito, Yugoslav revolutionary and statesman.
Grisia Street is a beautiful street with cascading steps that leads up to the plateau of the parish church of St. Euphemia.
The wealth of Roman architecture makes otherwise workaday Pula (ancient Polensium) a standout among Croatia’s larger cities. The star of the show is the remarkably well-preserved Roman amphitheatre, smack in the heart of the city, which dominates the streetscape and doubles as a venue for summer concerts and festivals...
Pula’s most famous and imposing sight is this 1st-century oval amphitheatre, overlooking the harbour northeast of the old town.
This is the only visible remnant from the Roman era on the Forum, Pula’s central meeting place from antiquity through the Middle Ages.
Along Carrarina are Roman walls, which mark the eastern boundary of old Pula. Follow these walls south and continue down Giardini to this arch.
The Gate of Hercules are architecturally modest. They are located between two round medieval towers. It was named after Hercules and his club
Porec is a tourist centre famous for its beautiful natural landscape, long tradition in tourism and several well-equipped tourist resorts: Plava and Zelena Laguna (Blue and Green Lagoon), Brulo, Pical, Spadici. In 1844 the steamers society, the Austrian Lloyd from Trieste, opened a tourist line which included Porec, and already in 1845 the first tourist guide of Porec was printed.
The town of Poreč/Parenzo is almost 2,000 years old, and is set around a harbor protected from the sea by the small island of Sveti Nikola/San Nicola.
Top billing in Poreč goes to the 6th-century Euphrasian Basilica, a World Heritage Site and one of Europe’s finest intact examples of Byzantine art.
One of the city's Venetian-era towers that once guarded the southeastern section of the city. The Round tower is part of what remains from the defensive wall.
The biggest roman temple in Istria is situated on the very end of the Poreč peninsula. The temple was dedicated to Jupiter or the Capitoline triade
