Poreč is a charming Istrian resort in western Croatia with a rich history dating back to the Roman era. The 6th-century Euphrasian Basilica dominates the Old Town and it is famous for its gem-studded Byzantine mosaics. The oldest part of this charming city, dates back to the 4th century. The nearby Baredine Cave should be visited for its beautiful stalactite formations.
After visiting the World Heritage–listed basilica, a medley of Gothic, Romanesque and baroque buildings, the lush and verdant Istrian interior must also be visited and Unforgettable Croatia can either arrange car hire or a private guided tour. The city is also close to Italian border so Venice should also be visited, whilst in the region.

Things to do in Porec
Explore the Euphrasian Basilica
The Euphrasian Basilica is one of the best preserved Early Christian complexes and should be visited. As one of the most significant world historical monuments it was put on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List in 1997. Its current structure dates back to the 6th century, although its first Early Christian basilica was erected in the 4th century. It has been inscribed on the EUNESCO World Heritage List since 1997 and should definitely be visited.
Visit the Baredine Cave
Visit the underworld of the Baredine Cave. This cave is a treasure chest of stalagmites and stalactites, underworld sculptures created through time by the constant dripping of water over so many years. Since 1986, the cave has been a geomorphological monument of nature, opening for visitors in 1995. We would recommend a trip to the cave if you are in Istria and you will descend along a 300 meter long pathway up to 60 meters below the ground and will admire the spectacular underground lake. You will also have the chance to visit five beautifully decorated chambers.
