The heart-shaped peninsula home to the Istrian Coast is part of the North Adriatic coastline. Its proximity to Italy gives it an Italian flavor. The influence is felt in its names, culture and nicknames: “The New Tuscany.” They use the coast to launch themselves into other sectors of the country, including the nearby islands. The Istrian Coast then affords them a glimpse at its past glories.
If you visit Poreč, be sure to see the 6th century Byzantine mosaics in the Euphrasian Basilica. There are also several Roman ruins, including two Roman temples. The Istrian Coast can reveal to you the Temple of Augustus at Pula and its Roman Amphitheater built in the first century A.D still in use today.
