Poreč is a port and tourist centre on the west coast of Istria and is located near Novigrad, Funtana and Vrsar. Since ancient times, the city has been the centre of the wider area between the valley of the Mirna River and the Lim Channel which means that, just like in the rest of Istria, you will recognise the influence of historical peoples such as the Liburnians, the Histrians, the Greeks and the Celts. During the period of Roman rule – or, more precisely, during the 2nd century BC – a Roman castrum was erected, and the historical core of the city stands here today. The value of this city was recognised during the reign of Emperor Augustus (1st century), and the castrum was declared a town that was part of the Roman colony Colonia Iulia Parentium. As it was then, so it is now – the Mediterranean climate and its mild winters and warm summers attract visitors to Poreč all year round. The season of beach fun, swimming and diving lasts from May to October, while the off-season period is perfect for weekend trips for the entire family.When (or, better, if) you ever get bored of relaxing and sipping cocktails by the beach, spend some quality time in one of the wellness centres, or visit the olive groves of a family farm. Surprise your senses with Istrian delicacies. Visit the annual wine fair Vinistra to forget all your worries for a moment and enjoy autochthonous Istrian wine varieties.
