Poreč hosts the Open Air Festival
A beautiful city on the coast of the Istria peninsula, Poreč attracts more and more tourist as the years go by. Its roots go back to Ancient Roman times and it tells a beautiful historical story with its cultural monuments.
In 2016, Poreč was named the best summer tourism vacation.
It is a great acknowledgement for the city visited by almost half a million tourists every year. The number of overnight stays in the city of Poreč and its surrounding area is also impressive, reaching over 3 million in 2016.
One of the most important features of Poreč is certainly its rich history told through the city’s historical centre. Ancient city palaces have been turned into museums and galleries, as well as homes of the people of Poreč who live in excellently preserved Romanesque and Gothic buildings. The Euphrasian basilica, which dates back to the 6th century, is one of the city’s most famous sites and is registered in the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites.
Tourism is the lifeline of Poreč, so it is hardly a surprise that it is hosting the Open Air Festival, whose goal is to celebrate life and create many memorable moments for all visitors. From 23 June to 16 September, the people of Poreč and their guests will be able to enjoy a vast range of entertainment on the city streets and squares.
