Tourist destination info Umag

Umag is a picturesque Mediterranean town-port on the north-western Istrian shore. It is located in an attractive bay, which also contains one of the most prestigious ACI marinas with the Blue Flag. Besides the marina, 10 more beaches have been awarded the Blue flag, an international symbol of sea clarity and beach adaptations. Some of the more beautiful and famous beaches in Umag are the Laguna Stella Maris beach, Katoro beach, Aurora beach and Kanegra beach. Umag has an exceptionally interesting past. It was discovered by roman noblemen in ancient history who decided to transform it into their summer manor. The glow, luxury and glamour of those times is mirrored in the Venetian houses located in the old Umag core. Parts of town walls and forts have been preserved in the town, as well as baroque and renaissance churches and buildings. Umag has several historical sites, such as St. Mary church (from the 15th century, adorned with frescoes), church of the Assumpion of the Virgin Mary and St. Pelegrio (built in 1507, after the apparition of the plague) as well as the old part of the town which is not as rich with historical buildings as it is attractive because of its position. The town is surrounded by the sea and has a picturesque town center. Umag is best-known as the center of the international ATP tournament since 1990. This place is ideal for your vacation because of its natural beauties, history, tradition, as well as the warm Mediterranean climate. Rich sports offer, exceptionally esteemed authentic gastronomy, as well as wine and olive roads contribute to its attraction. Active vacation enthusiasts will find whatever they want in Umag, because it is a town of tourism and sports. You can enjoy tennis, football, little football, cycling, Nordic walking, walking, hunting, bowling, beach volleyball, basketball, diving, sailing, water sailing, water skiing, kite flying and numerous other activities. Be sure to savor countless delicacies and specialties of this region such as the Istrian prosciutto, Istrian cheese , pork loin, fritters, krostule and the peak of Istrian gastronomy – truffles, as well as numerous fish specialties. You can savor all these dishes in restaurants and tavern such as “Dante”, “Maremoto”, “Cittar”, “Aurora”, “Misa” and “Pelegrin”.

    Very nice town
    Old town, beach (especially in Stella Maris), atmosphere, excellent reservation system of Adriagate, now the second time, e.g. no similar system for Italy, at all.
    Ending of travel to Umag, it took 2 hours from Koper to Umag, nearly unbearable, it must be improved somehow (I know it is mainly Slovenia). The situation was similar in reverse direction from HR to SLO (now in Croatia), finally I''ve found another road toward the Slovanian airport. The traffic jam was horrible.
