Poreč

Two-thousand-year-old Poreč on the west coast of the Istrian peninsula is the tourist centre along the west coast of the Istrian Peninsula. Its historic old town, set on a small peninsula is the site of impressive Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque buildings as well as a World Heritage–listed basilica. The stunning hinterland of Istria is also easily accessible from here.


There is the lovely full service Poreč Marina, in the centre of the town which is a convenient place to charter a boat from. Poreč Marina is well-sheltered by the Sveti Nikola island and a breakwater and is open all year round offering daily, monthly and annual berthing and docking assistance. These grounds offer friendly sailing conditions and the local climate is relatively mild and free of oppressive summer heat. Both the Rovinj archipelago, with its 14 islets; and the Brijuni Islands National Park, one of Croatia's most beautiful National Parks are a pleasant sail away from here.


Poreč is also a party place attracting partygoers from all over Europe.


Poreč is well connected by road with the rest of Istria and with larger cities in the region such as Trieste, Rijeka, Ljubljana and Zagreb. Pula International Airport is located only about 50 km from Poreč.  There are bus lines to and from Pula, Rijeka and Zagreb and the closest railway station is in Pazin. Ferry lines run from Venice and Trieste to Poreč in the high season.


The Northern Adriatic is popular for sailing because of its calm waters and the mild climate. The many islands provide protection and this section of the coast has many well-equipped marinas. In summer there is very little chance of the Bora: the strong, cold Northeasterly wind from the mountains. The daily Maestral wind is friendly to sailors and is generally weaker in the north Adriatic than in its south.
