Paradise islands of aristocracy
The Brijuni Islands consist of 14 islands and islets and are an extraordinary mix of natural beauty and cultural and historical heritage. Indigenous plants, preserved Mediterranean maquis, meadows where fallow deer, chital deer and mouflons freely graze all make part of the Brijuni landscape that you will experience during the excursion.
Follow the legend and ensure yourself more happiness in love by throwing pebbles in the water before Venus’ temple, meet irresistible parrot Koki, which managed to charm even hard-to-please John Malkovich, or just take a stroll in the places where John F. Kennedy, Sophia Loren, Queen Elisabeth II walked.
The archaeological and other sites located away from the island’s centre can be visited by train: the Verige Bay with the remnants of a Roman villa rustica from the 1st century AD, as well as the safari park that is home to many animals, such as zebras, Somali sheep, humped zebu cattle, dromedary camels, llamas and elephants. It is noteworthy that as many as 200 dinosaur footprints have been identified on the Veli Brijun Island.
The small Gothic Church of St. German from the 15th century housing a permanent display of fresco replicas and Glagolitic monuments of Istria, a natural science collection, and the exhibition “Tito on the Brijuni Islands” are also included in the sightseeing tour.ITINERERY:
