Umag's rise as a popular tourist destination in Croatia should come as no surprise. The scenic Istrian city along the Adriatic Coast holds unmatched beauty and distinction.
Due to its location in northwest Croatia, Umag is considered the gateway to Istria from northern Europe.
With a coastline filled with stunning beaches, Umag has solidified itself as an established summer destination in Europe. But the sea is only one of the reasons Umag stands out as an exceptional vacation site. Umag is a city full of endless entertainment possibilities. Exciting events such as the ATP Croatia Open, held each summer at the stadium at Istraturist's Stella Maris resort.
Buje was known as the "sentinel of Istria" for its hilltop site located 10 km (6.21 mi) inland from the Adriatic Sea. It still commands an excellent panorama. Buje has a rich history; traces of life in the region date back to prehistoric times. The town developed from a Roman and Venetian settlement into a medieval town. Buje has been part of the Venetian republic from 1358 until 1797 and has been an Italian city from 1918 to 1945. Today it is a modern regional center. Despite its development Buje has retained many features typical of various historical periods. With its narrow streets and a central square, the old town is a fine example of medieval architecture with strong Venetian influences as the rest of the region
