Brijuni is a group of islands that lies close to Istria's western coast. Its most beautiful part was proclaimed a national park in 1983. The islands are 6 km from Pula and are separated from the mainland by the Fazana channel through which boats from the Fazana harbor to Brijuni operate on a daily basis. The Brijuni archipelago consists of 2 larger islands - Veliki and Mali Brijun, as well as 13 smaller, well-indented islands that have been inhabited since prehistorical times.
The islands are known for their mild climate and rich vegetation, while the National Park abounds with tree-lined walks, parks and gardens of tropical vegetation. The Brijuni Zoo is of the open type, meaning that animals can freely roam the island, and there is also a safari park.
Brijuni offers many sporting activities: horseback riding, golf, tennis, sailing, windsurfing, bike and boat rental, diving, while guests have access to numerous sports terrains, fields and other facilities. A holiday on Brijuni is ideal for guests looking for first class accommodation and an excellent variety of additional services.
