Located only 10 kilometers from the Slovenian border, Umag is the closest, and for many foreign tourists, favorite summer vacation destination. It has been like this since the Roman Empire days when the nobles discovered all the beauties of this Istrian turist gem and developed it further as their summer residence which gave the city a big part of today’s character.
Glorious history of the city, which clearly reflects in the old walls, towers, renaissance buildings, and the old Venetian houses, merged with the rich and modern present, visible in the attractive tourist industry, and a number of quality accommodation and luxury villas. Hotels, campsites, apartments, houses and villas, combined with beautiful sea, nice beaches and excellent connection to Europe and the rest of Istria (through the Istrian Y), give Umag advantage in the competition with other beautiful summer destinations in Istria. In addition, because of those reasons Umag is often times the first choice when purchasing summer vacation real estate.
Coming to Umag at any time of the year is always recommended because of the numerous sports and cultural events, however, we especially encourage you to experience this city during the world famous ATP tournament. During the week of the tournament, this small town becomes a real world tennis center.
Besides tennis players and tennis fans, Umag and its surroundings are adored cyclists, golf players, handball players, and all others who love sports. For those looking for good fun, Umag has numerous concerts, coffee bars, and night clubs in which fans of various music genres can find something to enjoy.
Umag is a small town which is really worth to visit. It may be small in surface, however, there is something for everyone.
