Istria - Umag

UMAG


Umag is a town and port on the north-western coast of Istria, 13 km northwest of Buje. The old town core is situated on a peninsula, between two shallow bays. The northern, more spacious bay is protected by a breakwater and converted into a harbour. Economy is based on farming, viniculture, fishing and tourism. The hinterland of Umag abounds in fertile and cultivated land, with fields reaching the coast (vine is the main crop). A number of shallows were formed by erosion of soil, which provide excellent fishing grounds. The new part of the town faces the open bay and is connected with the tourist part of the town in the north-west. The port is exposed to north-westerly winds and allows docking of vessels drawing up to 3.5 m. Umag Marina (Nautical Centre Umag) is located in the northern part of the port. Umag lies on the regional road connecting Savudrija with Novigrad, as well as Umag with Buje. In Roman times Umag was known as Umacus. Narrow and winding streets and picturesque squares reveal a mediaeval urban structure; preserved are parts of the town wall, reinforced by towers in the 14th century. The Baroque parish church (whose construction started in 1730) has a characteristic shallow dome; the church keeps a part of a Gothic polyptych from the 15th century. - Since 1985 the Dante Gallery, owned by Marin Cettin, has been opened. Exhibited and promoted are mainly modern works of art. Umag has a number of hotels, hotel annexes, apartments, bungalows, campsites and a marina offering standard supporting services, which guarantee a pleasant stay and vacation - recreational opportunities include swimming pools, beaches, a casino, sports grounds, as well as special programs for older people, huntsmen, anglers and nature lovers. Cultural and historic sites and structures are often used as stages for concerts and other quality events.

DAJLA


Dajla, picturesque village, situated on the north west coast of Istrian peninsula, between Umag and Novigrad has been discovered in last few years as very interesting vacation destination. Thanks to its geographical characteristic and a small fisherman harbour well protected from winds and rough seas, and beautiful rocky beach with crystal clear water, as well as its woods and vineyard surroundings, Dajla gives an opportunity for pleasant and peaceful vacation. The road will take you just in minutes to Novigrad, Porec or Umag Riviera or any of the inland famous cultural centres as Grožnjan, Oprtalj, Motovun, etc. The Slovenian and Italian borders are just couple of miles away that saves you trouble driving any further to have a great vacation.
