“Porec”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

Porec is like a diamond in Istra peninsula... The old town with its main street, plazas, architecture is hard to find in other parts of Europe. The old town has been preserved successfully and it is outstanding place for those who like cultural and architectural environments... Among the plazas Trg Marafor is particularly worths mentioning... You can find 24 hours open bars... Nearby beaches and the island across old town is a great place for swimming..

“Full of character”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

A fascinating town with an Italian feel to it. While my wife browsed the many shops I lifted my eyes to a higher level and enjoyed the architecture.
Sit in a waterside bar and relax in the sun, watching the world on land and sea, and then be very pleasantly surprised at how inexpensive it is.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

Porec was a beasutiful old town with a historic church. There were a lot of tourist shops but at the end of the day that is how they make a living.

“Fun to wander around”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

Has some lovely old elements to it - pretty side streets and plenty of bars and restaurants.

A little spoilt by lots of tourist shops selling rubbish but off the side streets you can find some magical little places.

Friendly area.

“2nd Visit to Croatia”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

Still has many historic buildings, there are cobbled streets leading up to Liberty Square. Interesting little shops . When you have finished looking if you are not up to walking back, get the little trainer or at night the water taxi is very exciting.
