Peroj is a prehistoric settlement located in the south of Istria, which was known as a holiday destination already in the Roman times, as evidenced by the conclusions adopted at the Rižanska Assemly in 804. The village was plagued, but was later resettled, and in 1657 populated by families from Montenegro who are the ancestors of today’s inhabitants. The village, forests and pastures were assigned to immigrants through the only document of the time, the Peroj Charter. The people of Montenegro kept their Orthodox tradition, the Cyrillic alphabet and the language, while the native inhabitants of Peroj still speak the Peroj idiom and cultivate their old customs. Nowadays, the village consists mostly of fishermen and farmers, but the village is urbanizing and turning towards the development of tourism by offering a large number of villas and private houses.
