Istria - Vrsar


Vrsar, a town and small harbour on the western coast of Istria, 3 km north of the Limski Kanal Fjord; population 1,624. Economy is based on farming, viniculture, fishing and tourism. Vrsar has a small airport for aerial sports (two-seater planes). A regional road connects Vrsar with Porec and the main road Buje - Pula.The beginning of tourist development in Vrsar is marked by the existence of three inns (Aquilante, Mismas and Istria) which started to operate before the Second World War, as well as by the children's summer camp Ernesto Faidiga, established under the Italian rule. Modern tourism started in 1957 with the establishment of the catering-trading company Lim. In 1961 the island of Koversada was turned into a nudist resort. With the nudist campsite Koversada, Vrsar is considered the pioneer of the European nudist movement. Vrsar won great popularity with the organization of the 13th International Nudist Congress in 1972. The construction of accommodation facilities was continued on the Petalon peninsula. Today, Vrsar is a well-known tourist resort with great opportunities for visitors. In front of Vrsar is one of the most beautiful archipelagos with 18 unpopulated islets covered with Mediterranean plants. Hotels are located close to the sea, along nice beaches, and Vrsar campsites are world-famous. This applies particularly to the Koversada nudist camp, which is the largest nudist resort in Europe. Its capacity is 18,500 guests per day. Vrsar offers a great number of catering establishments (restaurants, inns, buffets, pizzerias and night clubs) and many sports and recreational facilities (tennis courts, various playgrounds, boccia grounds, miniature golf, airport for aerial sports «Crljenika»; renting of sports and sailing boats, surfboards, bicycles), as well as entertainment programs. Among cultural events held in Vrsar, it is important to emphasize the international summer sculpturing workshop in the abandoned quarry Montraker. In the summer tourist season Vrsar offers numerous cultural events, including concerts of classical music (usually in the church of St. Foska) and folk feasts. Summer terraces offer entertainment programs for tourists. Several times in the season, the Day of Koversada is held, a whole-day entertainment program which traditionally closes with the beauty contest, Miss Koversada. Apart from sports activities (both on land and in the sea), aerial sports opportunities are also offered: parachuting, hang-gliding and panoramic flights by two-seater planes.
