Poreč Old Town
For obvious reasons, Porec is one of the most visited towns in Croatia. Popular with German and as well as most other europeans it is a lovely town, which history streches back 2000 years. In Porec you will find several squares, some tiny, many small alleys and narrow lanes with buildings that seem to stretch forever upwards and many cafes, restaurants etc. Porec is a town with everything you need when you are on vacation!
mix of the historic and modern
Porec is a compact little town with a pleasant promenade around the walls. The old town is nice, but very commercialised, with lots of bars ,restaurants and jewellery and souvenir shops. The highlight of my visit was to the 6th Century Basilica of Euphrasius , beautifully ornamented with Byzantine mosaics. It was built to honour Bishop Euphrasius , the first bishop of Porec who was martyred in the 3rd century. For me, Porec is an interesting visit if you are staying in Rovinj.
