The city of Poreč is also known as a city of good entertainment, so prepare yourself for a unforgettable fiesta.
Poreč, Parenzo, in Latin – Parentium. In very interesting history longer than two thousand years, through the city passed whole European civilization from the Roman’s till the present time’s. This city-peninsula has been colonized in the prehistoric times and the shape of a real city received in the beginning of Roman colonization on Istria in 40. – 30. BC. Two main streets of the city carry the same name as in Roman city – Decumanus and Cardo maximus. The city still have the big Roman square – Forum whit remaining temples of Martius and Neptunius. The most valuable monument of the city is a Bizantine building – The Euphrasius Basilica. This building is the only monument in Istria which is inscribed in the UNESCO list of cultural heritage.
The history of Istrian peninsula is very similar to the history of the city of Poreč. At first the peninsula was colonized by the tribe Histri and the peninsula still bears its name. After the Histri came Roman civilization which left some of the most important cultural monuments on our ground. Through the period of Middle Age various nationalities passed through Istria and left a lot of material to witness their presence to us today. From 13th century onward the coast was dominated by dodge of Venice and the central Istria by Austrian imperial court. From that time we have preserved a lot of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque monuments. In 19th and in 20th century there was a continuous change of Istrian sovereigns.
Today Istria is the most developed region in Croatia an tourism is one of it’s major incomes.
