Stinjan (Pula)

Tourist destination info Stinjan (Pula)

Štinjan is located on the southwestern end of Istria near Pula, on the hills and valleys above the northern coast of the Pula bay. In the Roman times it was known as “Astiniaum.” In Štinjan you can visit the parish church with the bell tower of St. Margarita, the monument of the Fascism victims, “Šaliž” street, Turulu hill,  Cristo fortress on the Proština peninsula and the remains of the roman baths with mosaic floor and the remains of a large wool mill in the Žunac bay and Guc cape. This small and peaceful tourist town has developed 700m away from the central beach which is surrounded by pine trees so we would recommend it for a family vacation. Other than on the central beach, you can also go to the smaller nearby bays. In this small town you can enjoy the various beauty of the coast, bays, islands and peninsulas. During the summertime you can take part in various festivities, the most famous of which is the “Truffle Days” (a superb culinary festivity held over several days in all of Istria). The delicacies of this region and Istria in general can be tastes in restaurants “Šurida” and “Campo.” While in beautiful Štinjan, do not miss the opportunity to visit Pula and Rovinj.

Pula is a city rich in history and cultural monuments. Visit the amphitheater, which dominates the city and is the 6th largest ancient amphitheater in the world, Augustus’ temple, triumphal arch of the Sergijans, the Forum, the gates of Hercules, church and monastery of St. Frances, castle, navy cemetery and many others. The city offers a wide variety of sports and recreational activities as well. You can take part in windsurfing, basketball, tennis, sailing, panoramic flights, nature climbing, golf, scuba diving, walking and cycling.

Rovinj is a small city located on the western coast of Istria. It is rich with historical landmarks, of which we recommend the following: Old Town, City Walls and Gates, Church of St. Euphemia, Baptistry of the Holy Trinity, Franciscan Monastery, the castle on the island of St. Andrew and Dvigrad. Apart from its historical landmarks, Rovinj is rich with natural beauty, as well. Be sure to visit sights such as Limska Draga, the Rovinj islands and coastal region, “Zlatni Rat” Forest Park, “Fantazija” quarry, “Palud” marsh and the Dvije Sestrice islands.
