Funtana – Dinosaurs return to Istria

Funtana – Dinosaurs return to Istria
Dinopark is located in Funtana, a former small fishing village and today a famous tourist destination in Istria. It is a fun theme park in which visitors can see life size replicas of dinoaurs. Many fossils, bones and other dinosaur remains were found not far from Dinopark, which is proof that these magnificent creatures roamed the area of Istria more than 120 million years ago.

In the time of the Mesozoic, Istria was the luxury home to many species of dinosaurs, covered with rich vegetation that these large animals fed on. Because of this history, the idea came about for opening a fun dinosaur themed park. Dinopark was thus created.

Some of the exhibits in this interesting park were designed by companies which participated in the making of dinosaurs for films and documentaries. A stroll along the wooden walking paths through the beautiful karst forest, with an interesting rocky landscape and in the company of these magnificent giants from the past, is unforgettable.

Visitors can see hand made replicas of dinosaurs that have come from all over the world. The dinosaurs will be able to move their limbs, head and tail and make such realistic dinosaur sounds which call for respect which they commanded when they walked the face of the Earth.

There is also a circus and a magic show in the arena with around 800 seats. At their disposal visitors also have an internet café, a self service restaurant, a dino cinema, a children`s playroom and a museum with dinosaur remains. In the outer part of the park there is a children`s train, a trampoline, bouncy castles and the “Flying Devils” group show, in which they ride a motorcycle on a wire, 25 metres above ground level.
