Tours Excursions Transportation:

The Brijuni (or, in Italian, Brioni) Islands National Park is only 6km from Pula, on the Istrian coast. There are two main islands and 12 islets but only the largest island, Veli Brijun can be visited (unless you have your own boat) and you must come either with an excursion or with a hotel booking.

The main curiosity of Veli Brijun is the peculiar collection of animal life. Former Yugoslav leader, Marshal Tito had his summer residence there and liked exotic animals. When guests came to visit they brought animal "pets" such as zebras, elephants and antelopes which are now housed on the island. The guided tour last three hours and takes you through the "safari park", Tito's residence and various ancient ruins.

Getting to the Brijuni Islands: A guided excursion is mandatory unless you arrange accommodation on the main island. Excursions can be arranged through travel agencies in Pula, Porec and Rovinj. You can also go directly to the Brijuni Tourist Service in Fazana.
