Church of St. Mary and St. Peregrin

Reviewed By Deyan B - Sofia, Bulgaria

The church is one of the first things that you can see in the old town of Umag. It has an unique architecture and returns you in older times. The bell tower can be seen from all over the place.
Unfortunatelly we were there by night and did not had the chance to visit it from inside. It will be the next thing to do when we return to Umag.

Savudrija Lighthouse

Reviewed By Ildiko I - Munich, Germany

Nice area worth to visit. It is a nice 20-25 min. walk from the haven you can walk along the coast through the camping area. Very nice spot itself but do not expect much from the area it is a typical fisherman's village and haven - not that spectacular as Piran across the see. When nearby, worth to check it out though.

Shells are displayed from all over the world. A very interesting array of different types, colors, sizes. The museum docent was the best in his infectious delight about the shells and gave us a handy guide to help us go through the museum.

Oleificio Mate

Reviewed By Daniele B - Udine, Italy

Il primo incontro con l’olio Mate (nella versione “Trasparenza Marina”) è avvenuto in un ristorante di Grado, e l’ottima impressione ricavata nel gustarlo ci ha indotti a visitarne la sede, nonché stabilimento di produzione.
L’oleificio è sito in Istria, a Zambratija, paesino sulla strada che da Umago conduce a Savudrija (Salvore); un’indicazione, alla quale bisogna prestare una certa attenzione, è collocata in corrispondenza alla traversa da imboccare.
Raggiunto il sito, uno spiazzo antistante consente di parcheggiare, per poi raggiungere a piedi il frantoio, distante un centinaio di metri. Nel percorrere il vialetto, la vista viene catturata dalla distesa di ulivi disseminati sulla proprietà, e dalla terra rossa che li alloggia e li nutre, cui fa da sfondo, su un lato, l’azzurro del mare.
Il giorno della nostra visita (improvvisata senza preventivamente telefonare per informarci), l’oleificio ospitava l’evento di presentazione della guida “Flos Olei 2015” (guida all’eccellenza dell’olio extravergine di oliva nel Mondo), con la partecipazione di produttori (locali e qualche ospite), giornalisti, personalità della politica. Al nostro arrivo, siamo stati accolti molto cordialmente dal Sig. Roberto, uno degli addetti alle vendite di Mate, il quale ci ha invitati a fermarci e partecipare all’evento, invito che abbiamo accolto con entusiasmo.
Abbiamo così avuto modo di ascoltare un’interessante presentazione della guida, ma anche dell’olio prodotto nel frantoio, con la possibilità di partecipare al successivo rinfresco, assaggiando l’olio Mate (stavolta nella sua versione “Timbro Istriano”), nonché qualche appetitoso piatto offerto per l’occasione, e bevendo l’ottima Malvasia Istriana della cantina Degrassi.
Oltre ai due oli già citati, ne esiste una terza versione, un blend, l’unico ad essere venduto anche in latte da 5 litri.
Per maggior cultura, il sito web di Mate è molto ben costruito, e rende disponibile una miniera di informazioni sugli oli prodotti, sul territorio che ne delinea il gusto, sulla storia dell’azienda e del suo fondatore Mate Vekić, sui premi meritati dai suoi prodotti, sulle persone che si prendono cura del frantoio e di chi lo visita; invito caldamente a consultarne le pagine, sarà immediato avvertire la passione che anima questa persone.
Non abbiamo avuto la chance di acquistare l’olio (inconveniente cui contiamo comunque di ovviare in una prossima occasione), ma abbiamo potuto sicuramente apprezzare il suo gusto veramente delizioso, assieme alla gentilezza e all’accoglienza delle persone che nel frantoio lavorano.
Un complimento a chi ha saputo costruire tutto questo ed a chi ne sta seguendo le orme.
L’oleificio è aperto tutti i giorni, esclusa la domenica, per la visita al frantoio, la degustazione e l’acquisto dei prodotti.

This is our 4th time at the Aqua Park, been going to this park every summer since it opened.
A great day with the kids , the slides are excellent , our boys did them all. Our family favorite is the "Crazy Hills". The kids always want to beat us to the bottom !
There plenty of space to have lunch , we bring our own sandwiches and drinks. However we always buy drinks there as well.
Do no miss the music band that goes into the wave pool .. excellent time!
We always go there on the Saturday's as there seems to be less crowd on that day.

Reviewed By stevenenhilde - Antwerp, Belgium

We visited this place 12 years ago. In that time there was nothing, just the pans. Now we visited the parc again. Now this is more commercial, more educational. Nice place!
If you prefer the educational way ... take the entrance in Portoroz.
If you prefer the spotive way (bikes) ... take the entrance between the croatian and slovenian border.

We didn't manage to book a whole winery tour because the groups were full for the day, but we had tasting (3 glasses of wine for 50 kunas, which is a great price). If you are near, you should definitely stop by.

Piran Town Walls

Reviewed By mcink - Beverley, United Kingdom

The town walls run along from one side of the peninsula to the other as a way of guarding the entire city between the walls and the sea. The walls are easily walk-able and you can climb the towers too, to get a really great view of the Adriatic and the surrounding countryside.
Really is a good experience for the minimal price.
