Welcome to Poreč

Mass tourism means this is definitely not the place for a quiet getaway (unless you come out of season). However there’s a World Heritage–listed basilica, a medley of Gothic, Romanesque and baroque buildings and a well-developed tourist infrastructure, and the verdant Istrian interior is within easy reach. It's also become the party hub of Istria in the last couple of years, drawing in young partygoers from all corners of Europe.
