Funtana

With its rich history that dates back to ancient times, Funtana in Croatia is a small oasis for a summer holiday in Istria. Surrounded by perfectly clean beaches, this town offers an ideal opportunity for a holiday at sea, in the peace and quiet, embraced by the sun.

Funtana is located on the coast near Vrsar, and it was built on fresh water springs, which have made it an unavoidable destination throughout history, in the same way in which its beauty does today. The town’s history is woven into the white facades of buildings damaged by bora, the streets which have been stamped for centuries in order to reach the water springs, people who pass on legends and the ruins of the old aqueducts though which water was conveyed to the luxurious ancient villas. Funtana in Istria tells the story about the first salt pans and fishing, as well as the quarries whose stone is built into the old residences, while the local residents are always willing to share the legends about their town. Green nature, blue sea and impeccable beaches awarded with blue flags are the main reason why Funtana attracts many guests. It also has many contents and activities for those wanting a more active holiday. The gastronomy of this town stands out with traditional meals, from pastas to various fish specialties and sea fruits prepared in countless imaginative ways. Diverse concerts and fish evenings, which include socialising with the bighearted local residents, make this likable town the right choice for a family summer holiday in Istria. Accommodation in Funtana can be found in the popular All inclusive resort Funtana or in nearby Vrsar. Funtana in Croatia will welcome you with arms wide open!
