Poreč – The first five-star hotel in the area of Poreština

8 November 2011 No Comment

The construction of an exclusive five-star hotel Zlatni Prsten with 84 beds should soon begin in the tourist village Zelena Laguna. It is a foreign investment stretching over about 10 000 square meters of land on the territory of Funtana, close to the border with Poreč. This will be the first five-star hotel in Poreč. The investors come from Estonia and Russia. The building outlines are limited to the basement, ground floor and a maximum of three storeys.

The Istrian town of Poreč is rich in historical heritage. The foundations of the valuable town centre, situated on a small peninsula, were laid during the Roman Empire, and from then up until now the proper geometric arrangement of streets has been preserved.

One of the greatest sights of the town is the invaluable Eufrazijeva Basilica built in the 6th century. Its value was recognized by UNESCO which took it under its wing in 1997. Carefully kept fragments of ancient temples can be found within the ancient walls of Poreč, near the oldest square Marafor.

The entire old town core is a living monument of culture. The inner sides of the city’s numerous palaces reveal the history of their construction through various stylistic and historical periods.

Besides the rich historical heritage and cultural sites, Poreč offers visitors many opportunities for an active holiday, from scuba diving, jet skiing, fishing, sailing and water skiing to cycling, golf, hunting and go karts as well as an adrenaline park for lovers of extreme sports.

Located in the city center is the Poreč Aquarium with 24 aquariums, where visitors can get acquainted with the underwater world of the Adriatic Sea and see 70 different specimens of fish, crustaceans and other organisms that inhabit it.
