Fažana is located in the southwestern part of the western coast of Istria in the Fažana channel. Fažana is also called the pearl of the west coast of the largest Croatian peninsula. The local population has always been fishing and farming. It has also been a meeting place and a battle ground of great nations, such as the Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, and military and civilian authorities of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The first time Josip Broz Tito (the revolutionary and a former president of Yugoslavia) visited the Briuni archipelago he departed from Fažana. The charm of this old town is created by old squares and houses lined next to each other. Visit the parish located in the old center of the town, the church of St. Mary of Mount Carmel, the church of St. Elisha, St. John’s church and many other cultural monuments depicting the heritage of Fažana.
To experience Fazana as a fishing town we recommend taking a coffee early in the morning in the harbor, at the waterfront close to the fishing boats and nets with view of Brijuni from the wonderful seaside promenade.
Crystal clear sea and beautiful beaches, due to protection of the area because of National park Brijuni, having a mild Mediterranean climate, lots of sun and warm weather, plenty of humidity with rich vegetation will provide you pleasant stay during your visit to Fazana.
