Town of Umag
Umag, small town and port on the north-western coast of Istria, presents 'Croatia’s gateway to Europe'. It also has the reputation of the Istrian sports centre, since as the host of the ATP tournament for many years now, it attracts numerous top world tennis players.
Its beneficial features were already recognized by the Romans who turned it into their summer residence. The magnificence and splendour of those times today is reflected in the many Venetian houses in the old part of Umag.
At a distance of only 40 kilometres from Trieste, 150 kilometres from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia and 50 nautical miles from Venice, Umag is a favourite holiday destination with extraordinary excursion possibilities. Umag’s hinterland offers newly discovered tourist attractions like mountaineering, caving and other chances for adventure enthusiasts.
