Many people go there for diving.
Every day several boots full of divers leave the port. I have heart that there are nearby some old ship wrecks.
On the beach there is a diving basis, where you can book the boats and hire the diving equipment.
Here the link to an Austrian diving school, which often go to Moscenicak Draga for diving.
WITH THE BIKE TO MOSCENICKA DRAGA
" the final destination of our tour"
Moscenicka Draga was the final destination of our bike-tour.
We stayed here only for one day, but it was worth to go there.
I have been in Moscenicka Draga already 30 years ago (when I was a teenager).
I love this place - full of nice rememberings.
After arriving now in Moscenicka Draga, i soon decided to go there for a third time - in summer-holiday 2002 with my family.
here you find the log of my tour to Moscenicka Draga: my bike-trip
here you find some informations on the web: Moscenicka Draga
With the bike along the coast
" START IN VIENNA "
When we startet, there was bad weather in vienna. It was cold and rainy. Fast we decided, to go with train to Villach, and from there we want to continue our tour with the bike to Trieste (Italy), and from there to follow the coast to Moscenicka Draga in Croatia.
" THE WAY TO TRIESTE "
Arraving in Villach, the weather was much more better. It was a nice trip through the - in german called - "kanaltal" to Udine. From there the way continued to Trieste.
We didn´t ride on the highways, with bike its much more better to drive on smaller streets. so you can see much more of the country.
"THE FIRST VIEW ON THE SEA "
On the photo you can see our first view to the sea. Half an hour before arriving at Trieste, you can see this wonderful landscape. I always like the moment arriving on sea.
In the background you see the Castle Miramare. When you are in Trieste, it´s worth to go there.
"TIRED FROM RIDING "
At the end of our first day, we crossed the boarder to Slovenia, and went to Portoroz. We stayed here for one night.
We found a nice private room to sleep, but the town was not really worth to stay.
"MORNING IN PIRAN "
After breakfast we went to Piran, only some kilometres away from our night destination.
A really lovely village.
Thousands of steps up and down, thousands of red roofs, small lanes, wonderful view to the sea.
"THE NEXT STOPS ON OUR TOUR "
Till noon, we made some further stops in nice little villages, all of them on the coast of Istria.
Villages we visited: Umag, Novigrad, Porec
After having a short Meal, we went to Rovinj. A city worth to stay longer to make some photos.
"A TOWN BUILT NEARBY THE SEA "
What a wonderful view. The old houses are built directly on the water. I seems that the nice town is swimming on the sea.
We walked through the village, having coffe and something cold to drinkt (in the meantime the weather was very sunny and hot).
After having a look on the port and the marketplace of Rovinj, we continued our tour, to reach our final destination before evening.
"THE CAPITOL OF ISTRIA "
In Pula, we only passed through the town, without making a rest.
It seems to be a nice town, but we couldn´t stay on every place. Maybe on our next trip to Istria.......
From Pula on, we went directly to Moscenicka Draga, only making some short stops to enjoy the lovely landscape and the wonderful view on the sea.
After staying another day in Moscenicka Draga, we went back to Austria. Back we took the shortest and fastest way.
Our trip was only 2 days long, but it was really worth to make it.
