Nature Park Brijuni

Brijuni can be refered to as Hollywood among marine protected areas in Croatia. Since roman times this island has been an attraction for high societies and as a proof of this fact we can find there remaining of roman villas and byzantine fortresses, and from the later period the remaining of the Kuppelwieser family residence, who owned Brijuni in the period between the 19th and 20th ct., as well as hotels and summer residence built by Josip Broz Tito, who used to spend more than four months a year on Vanga. Brijuni are oases of peace. Once you experience them you realize why. As the legend says they have been created out of little bits of heaven that have falen to earth and angels protected them by waves so the devil could not take them away. Tito showed his hospitality to many world statesman, celebrities and stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Supposedly he was having an affair with Sophia Loren there and enjoyed preparing food for her. Even today Brijuni stand for a real attraction for celebrities, but are also open for us mortals. More than a 100 million years ago even dinosaurs walked across the Brijuni mudleaving their stone traces behind. Even without dinosaurs today Brijuni, with their extravagant features, really remind us of Jurassic Park. As Marshal Tito was given many exotic animals, elephants, parrots, You can, while driving around in an electrical car, enjoy the wild scenery of zebras, antelopes, ostriches, lamas and similar animal species wich fit into Mediterranean surroundings as much as snow fits in the tropical forest contributing at the same time to the surreal experience of your visit.
