Tourist destination info Liznjan

Ližnjan is a fishing village with a naturally protected harbor, located on a small peninsula at the southernmost tip of Istria. The village looks onto the clear blue sea and the Kvarner islands in their full glory. There are 28 km of beautiful and pristine mostly rocky beaches. The history of this small town is really fascinating as evidenced by the settlement sites of over 7000 years old, the remains of Roman villas, amphora pieces and old wrecks that can still be found at the bottom of the sea. It is an ideal place for nature lovers and for those who want to relax away from the traffic, while at the same time staying close to the center of entertainment. Residents of this town, apart from tourism, also engage in fishing just as they did thousands of years ago.

An undiscovered jewel, a small island Levan is located beneath its coasts, with a beautiful sandy beach and two catering objects, and ideal place for those in search of adventure and different sea experience. Visit the church Gospa od Kuj ( built in the 17th century on the same place where once stood a roman villa) and st. Marti church ( from 1879, built on earlier remains, with the statue of saint Titular). Visit the lighthouses Lanterna and Galiola, as well as Svetica ( ancient building with double walls). Like any other Dalmatian place, Liznjan organizes numerous festivities during summer, the most famous of which are “Liznjan night” ( traditional national festivity on August 4), club race ( competition in underwater on April 18) and Velika Gospa ( national festivity with music and gastronomic specialties on August 15). In the evening hours you can enjoy numerous delicacies of restaurant “Bak”, tavern “Galiola”, pizzeria “Kontiki” and the restaurant “Old fisherman”. While you are in Loznjan, do not forget to visit major tourist destinations such as Pula, Porec and Rovinj.
