Brijuni & Fazana
Experience a little piece of paradise
National park Brijuni consists of 14 islands and islets and the surrounding sea. Brijuni are an oasis of timeless harmony of man, flora and fauna. Nearly 700 species of vegetation, about 250 species of birds are enrolled in Brijuni, while the mild Mediterranean climate makes this place pleasant and curative. Starting from Fazana, viewed from the boat deck, the line of green islands turns into Veliki Brijun, the largest of 14 islands.
The park is known for its impressive history dating back to the time of the dinosaurs, through antiquity, the Middle Ages, until the time of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, in which the name of the industrialist Paul Kupelwieser appears. In 1893, Mr. Kuplewieser purchased the archipelago and, during his lifetime, transformed a neglected, malarial island into a fashionable tourist resort and health resort for a wealthy aristocracy from across the Europe. After the II World War, the archipelago is under Yugoslavia and became the presidential residence of Josip Broz Tito, president of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Tito has hoseted numerous prominent figures on the islands from the political, economic and showbusiness world.
Nowadays, National park Brijuni is a famous jewel and one of the 8 national parks in the Republic of Croatia.
