Our camera shows the Umag seafront, which is always full of pedestrians, boats and cars. But this is just one small part because the seafront is 1.5 kilometers long.
There are also boats and speedboats that you can rent and sail into the sea adventure in this beautiful Istrian pearl. If you want to buy something, you will find here numerous booths with a variety of products, souvenirs, clothing items, pictures and more.
From the seafront there is an impressive view of Umag, which is particularly beautiful and romantic at night when the city is illuminated and creates a reflection in the dark sea.
Umag is located on the west coast of Istria. It exists since Roman times. Written sources mention it already in the sixth century. Many valuable artefacts dating back to the Roman times have been found in this area –the remains of the seaside villa with mosaic floors, remains of quays, as well as many different ceramic artefacts. Venetian old houses are still radiant with glamour and shine. Out of the old town centre, parts of the town walls and tower have been preserved, as well as impressive renaissance and baroque architecture which was built later. Umag is a true tourist destination – natural beauty, geographical position and climate are in its favour. Agro tourism, as a branch of tourism in development, attracts more and more tourists– the development of tourism in Umag is directly related to the development of agriculture. Fertile soil enables successful growth of olives and vine. Cultural events are frequent at public community college, including international literature symposium “Tomizza and we”. Alongside its many faces, Umag is a town of sport,hence there are frequent competitions in sport fishing, equestrian tournaments, ACI sailing cup and the most famous tennis tournament ATP Croatia Open. In favour of the beauty of beaches of Umag goes the fact that the National Geographic added Istria on the list of ten top world destinations in 2011,featuring the text with a photo of beach in Umag.
