  • Beautiful charming old town. Love the architecture. Friendly shops. Loved the laid back feeling. Long time since I was there but great to see it has survived. 
  • In our 1 of week Croatia holidays we have watched us many beautiful cities. One of them was also Porec. Porec is a beautiful old town with many shopping opportunities. Porec also has a small port which can be observed from a bank. In Porec, there is also the possibility on the way through the old town, small snacks for in between to get. The sea in Porec is also pretty clear. And you can see some algae, but it is perfectly alright to go swim undisturbed. Would recommend it to anyone, to look at holiday Porec when his Croatia.
