National Park Brijuni

The jewel of Istria, National Park Brijuni, is located in front of the west coast of Istria. National Park Brijuni Archipelago comprises 2 bigger and 12 smaller islands.

The shores are mostly low and rocky but easily accessible due to the rocks' horizontal stratification, and in some bays, gravel and sand can be found. Brijuni enriches unique flora and fauna, long promenades through untouched nature, and impressive tree alleys.

Veliki Brijun, the biggest island in this group, provides favorable conditions for numerous domestic and imported animal species with its specific microclimate. On the northern edge of Veliki Brijun, in an enclosed area stretching over 9 hectares, lies the Safari Park inhabited by an unusual combination of autochthonous Istrian and exotic South American, African, and Asian fauna. Indian elephant Lanka, llamas - South American camels, zebras, Indian sacred cows, and ostriches are the Safari Park's friendly inhabitants.

The ethno park is an area within the Safari Park presenting a typical Istrian homestead with its autochthonous animal species. Istrian ox (Boškarin), Istrian sheep (Istrian "Pramenka"), donkeys, and goats.

Mali Brijun is the second-largest island of the Brijuni Islands. Mali Brijun is known for its Fort Minor, the largest fortification on the Adriatic coast, and the Ulysses Theater, which represents Croatian art's jewel and gathers theatre lovers during summer. The island is open for public visitors only during Ulysses' theatrical scene.

Although Mali Brijun kept its original landscape full of maquis, you can also enjoy cultivated landscapes, parks, meadows, and pastures. Many Austro-Hungarian fortifications can be found hidden from view.
