Croatia, Porec Guide (B): Porec Croatia Travel Guide

Porec (pronounced Por-etch) is a unique Mediterranean city on the West coast of Croatia on the Istrian Peninsula. It serves as a gateway to Slovenia and Italy, with an influence of the neighboring countries felt throughout the small town. The history of Porec goes back 6,000 years. It was ruled by the Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, and Napoleon and was once a part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, Italy, and Yugoslavia.

The Old Town of Porec was once protected by fortified walls and towers which were constructed between the 12th and 16th century. Some of these structures still remain today. In 1997, the Euphrasian Basilica in Porec was named as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
