brijuni - Animals/Nature


The Brijuni archipelago is situated in front of the western coast of Istria. The islands comprise three main islands: Veli Brijun (Big Brijun), Mali Brijun (Small Brijun) and Vanga as well as several islets and reefs.

The coasts of the islands are well indented. Due to its favourable geographic position and low terrain, Brijuni Islands are known for their mild climate. The vegetation on the islands is extremely rich – Mediterranean: holm oak, laurel, pine, olive, rosemary and underbrush.

Already in classical antiquity the picturesque Brijuni Islands attracted people seeking natural beauty and tranquility, the archipelago has been inhabited since Roman and Byzantine times, and the ruins of Roman villas as well as numerous remains of other buildings and decorative mosaics speak of the attraction of the archipelago.

National Park Brijuni includes the surrounding sea with exceptionally preserved sea fauna.
