Poreč is a town located in the heart of the western coast of Istria. A town of culture, tourism, sport and leisure, where the aromas and colours of past times form a mosaic of unforgettable experiences.

Traces of the past are preserved in the old part. The stone streets, the remains of ancient temples, forums and other beautiful buildings preserved from ancient times testify to the many rulers. The Euphrasian basilica from the 6th century is the most valuable cultural and historical monument in Istria, and on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Today Poreč is an attractive tourist destination that pays great attention to tidiness, offers various events, accommodation facilities and activities. It also offers a diverse range of sports, from tennis, beach volley ball, soccer, horse riding, biking, hiking and other water sports that will enhance the holiday of any visitor.
The cathedral complex in Poreč was named Euphrasius Basilica after Bishop Euphrasius who thoroughly renovated the cathedral in mid-6th century and decorated it with famous mosaics. Before Euphrasius’ renovation, there were at least two phases of early-Christian buildings in the same place. In Poreč, Christianity was established as early as the 4th century – the basilica, the atrium, the baptistery and the Episcopal palace are remarkable examples of religious architecture, while the basilica itself combines elements of classicism and Byzantine Empire in an exceptional way. The apse is luxuriously decorated with figurative mosaics that are among the most significant examples of its kind in Europe.
