Brijuni National Park Things to Do

  • Brod

    Na otok vozi relativno mala brodica na koju stane oko stotinjak ljudi. Ako nisi "morski vuk" onda ti preporucam da budeš meðu prvima u redu za ulazak na brod kako bi mogao osigurati sjedece mjesto.Ako si photo-freak, zauzmi poziciju na provi ili još bolje na krmi i prepusti svojoj kameri da puca do mile volje. Na moru uvijek ima bezbroj atraktivnih...

  • Kuca na vodi

    Prvo što zaokuplja pozornost nakon uplovljavanja broda u luku je ova neobicna zgrada na vodi. Nema nikakvih podataka o namjeni te zgrade, ali sudeci prema konstrukciji koja je napravljena tako da camci mogu uplovllavati u prizemlje, to mora da je bila nekakva stražarnica.

  • Kako doci na Brijune

    Da bi posjetio NP Brijune, moraš stici u Fažanu, malo ribarsko mjesto koje se nalazi na oko 5 km od Pule i oko 15 km od Rovinja.Tocno nasuprot ovog mola, s kojeg vozi brod na Brijune, nalazi se ured Nacionalnog Parka u kojem se moraš predbilježiti i kupiti kartu. Cijena karte je 70 kuna, što i nije pretjerano s obzirom na doživljaj koji se...

  • replicas of works in St. German

    As it stands by the cluster of newer buildings a step away from the port, it's hard to miss it - the church of Saint German from 1481. Year of construction is engraved at its frontal facade and it is building modest in scale and ornament.For centuries painted with Gothic frescoes before they were destroyed in fire in 1894 together with its wooden...

  • ruins of Byznatine castrum

    And then you arrive to ruins of Byzantine castrum – an ancient fortified settlement rising above the sea of a quiet Madona gulf, whose impressive remains paint the view of once orderly organized society. The nature of that time controlled the way settlements were built: using local material, houses tiny with thick walls within narrow distances from...

  • monument to a Nobel man in a quarry

    Take a little side step from the main course (near the green house and church of st. German) and here you'll discover pleasant path leading through a small shaded quarry, now being overgrown with ivy - it's called dr. Koch's path, upon a Nobel prize for Medicine winning scientist dr. Robert Koch whom during his visit to islands at the turn of the...

  • permanent exhibition 'Tito on Brijuni'

    Great deal of attentnion goes to the permanent photo exhibition with Tito and his guests in one of the buildings next to the port: it is historic fact that many men and women of world's politics, crowned heads, people of art and entertainment in 20ieth century came to Brijuni to meet with him, hold sessions and make decisions more or less revealed...

    In the North East of Veli Brijun there's another interesting site to consider (and to most it's a 'must'): the safari kind of park with exotic and local animals, most eye catching being a group of zebra. It takes some 9 hectare of land and was established in 1978.The area is accessible via large wooden gates after some time cycling, behind there're...

  • in the thick shade

    Almost entire Veli Brijun feels like a giant landscape park: here are its spacious lawns, ancient ruins and architecture embedded in its tissue; solitary trees, native forest, pond and few tree lines. Views revealed and hidden when walking many of paths. Parts of it were carefully designed to feel 'natural' in sophisticated way while other ment to...

Brijuni National Park Restaurants

  • Hotel "Neptun"

    Da se razumijemo, i ovdje su cijene poprilicno visoke ali je zato podvorba vrhunska. Naruceno pice je rashlaðeno, ambijent perfektan pa nemaš razloga kukati na cijenu. Sjediš tako u dubokoj hladovini s prekrasnim pogledom na lucicu u kojoj je "gust" promet raznolikih brodica i guštaš u nepomucenom miru.

Jedna štrudla. k tome još mrzla, košta 12 kuna što je više nego bezobrazno. Takodjer, ilustracije radi, "Ledo" sladoledi koštaju za 60% više nego li na kopnu. Sladoled koji inace stoji 10 kuna, ovdje se...

  • Rent a bike

    Definitivno, bike je najbolje sredstvo za obilazak otoka. Ako k tome iznajmiš tandem, posao ti je upola lakši. Ovo društvo Talijana, njih tri para na tandemu, mora da su uživali u obilazku.Na moju žalost, prepustio sam se raljama vodica umjesto da se raspitam što se nudi i kakve su opcije.Tebi koji ovo citaš, a imaš namjeru posjetiti Brijune, toplo...

  • Rent a car

    Ako se odluciš iznajmiti ovakav autic, onda uz isti ide i vozac. Ja to nisam probao jer sam, neznajuci obicaje, otokom projurio u turistickom vlakicu što se pokazalo kao pogreška. Za razliku od brijunskog expressa, koji pomahnitalo juri otokom kao da ga ganjaju gladni lavovi, koristeci ovaj autic ti sam odreðuješ ritam vožnje i mjesta na kojima ceš...

  • bike to feel the best of the island

    Well I think the best way to explore the island is by bike, because if you walk some things are little far, but it's doable if you have plenty of time (let's say 1 full day, depends how fast you walk, how much attentnion you invest into sights of your interest, what you want to see).Maybe the 'worst' of the transport options is tourist 'train'...

Brijuni National Park Local Customs

  • Byzantine castrum

    This is probably the best preserved part of the settlement made of solid and firm Istrian stone. I realy don't know what it was but looks like a residental noble house. The round construction could have been backery or some sort of furnace.

    more
  • Byzantine castrum

    The continuity of human habitation on these islands can be followed from prehistoric times. On thecape of Ploce on Big Brijun island remnants of a dugout settlement from the earlier Stone Age have been discovered. There are also ruins of Illyrian hill-fort settlements found at locations of Gradina, Antunovac, Kosir and Ciprovac.

    more
  • Byzantine castrum

    According to its size, the castrum was big and important settlement at that time. Besides the remnants of the temple and military buildings, there are also remnants of the workshops, market and and residental quarters.

Brijuni National Park Tourist Traps

    Well I guess this tip may useful to some who're not loaded with cash: because Brioni tries to be 'exclusive' destination catering to boutique tourism most of hotels and restaurants belong to upper scale. I don't mean to encourage you to avoid them altogether but just warn that you'll pay more than in those by the continental eateries.It makes lot...

    No, you don't need to board the train to see the island: it's rushed way to take you through some of the most interesting sites. I only don't know why the NP office tries to pack most of visitors to Brijuni - if you don't want to go by it you're not entiteled to any cheaper entry ticket nor discount for renting a bike which is shame. They also...

    Beach in Brioni

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: As little as possible. You will be doing lotsa walking around the island - if you want, that is.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: comfy shoes to walk around... and BATHING SUIT!!
    As you can see, the beaches are beautiful...and it is sooo peaceful. It's like the "Blue Lagoon" or "the Beach".... gorgeous, with noone around ...just high trees and ruins....

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: hmmm...nah

    Photo Equipment: of course!

    Miscellaneous: Water.
    There are only 2 places where you can get drinks and they are almost double the price of what you would pay on the mainland.

    Hm. So....bring some water or whatever you want to drink....

  • Paunovi

    Paunovi slobodno šecu otokom, ali ih je nemoguce snimiti sasvim izbliza. Ovaj par na slici uocio sam u casu kada sam došao snimiti spomenik s prethodne slike.Koliko god da djeluju pitomo kada se promatraju iz pristojne daljine, toliko su nepovjerljivi kada im se približi i odmah bježe u gustiš.

    There are some people who come to Brijuni just to play a golf. Not being golfer myself, but in this case I thought how beautiful spots they have for the golf fields and they play it next to free roaming deer! First golf courses on Brijuni were designed in 1922 and since then, it's consider one of the nicest grounds in Croatia and yes, one can only agree with it.
    Lots of landscaping had been done, especially removing lime rocks from the surface and clearing the forest. Reconstruction works were done by some of the world's most famous golf architects.

    Equipment: Well you know what you need to play golf. And with that equipment (either yours or rented one)... the small 'golf' car comes very useful to cover the distances, without it - the game would be considered premodern to some observants (and maybe that's the real thing!).
