The city of Humagum, today known as Umag, was founded in the middle ages. Just like the majority of Istrian towns, Umag was also a part of different empires, whose influence can still be seen on the architecture of the city. The beauty of Umag was quickly recognized by roman nobles that made the city their summer residence. Take a walk through the picturesque streets and enjoy the glory and the glamour of the Venetian houses as well as the medieval town walls. However, churches and other buildings from the renaissance and the baroque times are also a sight for the eyes. One of the oldest buildings in Umag is also one of the best preserved ones – the tower which houses the City Museum. If you rent one of our stunning villas in this area, you will know why Umag is town you should not miss. The hinterland of Umag hides well preserved fortified hilltop towns with a view that will leave you breathless, stretching all over the surrounding area.
Thanks to the rich “terra rossa” – red soil characteristic for this area, Umag and its surroundings are also known for producing excellent, first class wines as well as olive oil. However, today Umag is frequently called “the city of sport” since it is hosting a variety of sports events such as ATP Croatia Open. Beautiful nature, crystal clear sea and a pleasant climate play a key role in making Umag one of the most beloved coastal towns, not only in Istria but in Croatia.
