Along the coast of western Istria, there are several groups of islands among which the most interesting, the largest and the most indented is the Brijuni group of 14 islands and islets. Veliki Brijun is the largest, most beautiful and most visited Brijuni island. This island is an exceptional example of harmony achieved by the intertwining of nature and the human touch. Veliki Brijun is partly cultivated into a harmonious landscape of lawns and landscape parks, and besides exceptionally valuable remains of architectural heritage, it contains preserved vegetation types typical for the western Istrian climate. Stay in one of the popular hotels of Veliki Brijun, and if you are only passing by, do not miss the Safari park, Verige bay, Byzantine Castrum, Boothouse, the old olive tree, pine alley and many other interesting locations.
