Nature – The Beauty of Nature in Istria and Poreč

Mediterranean surroundings, a gentle climate, fertile land and lush vegetation have made Poreč a unique holiday destination.
Bestowed with natural beauty, clean air and sea whose quality has been regularly measured and monitored for the past 30 years, you can relax and enjoy Istria's sea and hinterland.
Protected natural resources include protected mushrooms, plant and animal species as well as minerals and fossils.
A public institution for the protection, maintenance and promotion of the origin and authenticity of nature, Natura Histrica, is active in the area of the Region of Istria.  In the Poreč area we find valued nature sites such as two geomorphologic nature monuments, the Baredine Caves and Mark's Cave, a zoological nature monument at Pinzin's Cave and a botanical nature monument made up of a group of trees around St. Anne's Church near Červar.
In these nature attractions it is forbidden to dispose of waste, pick plants, disturb animals or destroy cave formations.  It is desirable to use the surrounding walking paths and forest trails and always behave in harmony with nature
  • Baredine Cave

    The Baredine Caves

    The Baredine Caves, located only 6 kilometres from Poreč near Nova Vas, are prepared for visits by tourists and can be viewed up to a depth of 60 metres with professional guides.  As a speleological site it is rich in hanging stalactites and growing stalagmites, icicle-like columns, underground halls and the presence of water which allowed for the survival of the olm or proteus and other cave fauna, and it represents a true natural geomorphologic phenomenon.
