Not far from Pula city — the touristic, economic and transport centre of Istria with many famous landmarks of Istria, one of which is the impressive ancient Roman amphitheatre — are the Brijuni isles, which can be reached by sailing across the Fazana channel.
Here, between Pula and Rovinj, on the area of only 7 sq.km. are 14 isles. Nature has created a real paradise here, which, at the turn of the 20th century, caught the attention of one of its owners Paul Kupelwieser.
