Zoological gardens, the safari park, museums, sculptures, flower gardens... all this and many more attractions make the Brijuni islands a true adornment of nature. On the islands you will also find the remains of ancient Roman architecture, surrounded by centuries-old olive trees.
Fazana is known for two...
Fazana is known for two historical naval battles. One of them is the one between the Venice and Genoa fleets in 1379 which took place in its waters. The second is the famous battle that took place near the island of Vis in 1866. The Austrian fleet under Tegetthoff's command set out from the Fazana harbour and then battled the Italian fleet at the island of Vis. Today Fazana is first of all known as a village with a nice port from where ships and boats set off to reach the famous Brijuni (or Brioni) islands.
Street scenes in Rovinj. As in most other Istrian cities that we visited we managed to find some time to enjoy a quiet stroll through town.
