If you are looking for a different type of vacation, far from the tourist resorts crowded with visitors, Marčana is the perfect destination for you. It represents a culturally rich village located on the north of Pula with a crystal-clear sea and an almost surreal-looking landscape consisting of extravagant gulfs and green peninsulas. This village features many historical sources which serve as an indicator of a turbulent history of this particular area in the Republic of Croatia. The place has many coves, churches and remnants pertaining to historical settlements. The church that stands out is the Parish church of St. Peter and Paul from the 15th century. Apart from it, one should most definitely visit the medieval church of St. Anthony of Padua from the 16th century. Likewise, you can also visit the house of the famous economist and writer Mijo Marković, as well as get a taste of the local food in several restaurants that you will surely find to be truly appetizing.
