Fažana is a small tourist town and municipality in the county of Istria in Croatia.
It is located on the west coast of Istria near the town of Pula and Brijuni islands.
It has about 3,500 inhabitants, and to the municipality of Fažana belongs nearby village of Valbandon.
It was first mentioned in the 12th century when it belonged to the diocese of Pula.
However, this area was inhabited during the ancient times, when it was an important commercial port where wine and olive oil were traded.
Tourism began to develop in the late 19th century when the first hotel was built on Brijuni islands, which later become a national park and a major tourist attraction in this region.
Today the inhabitants of Fažana mostly work in tourism and offer accommodation in apartments, rooms and holiday homes within their private family houses.
The biggest attraction of the place is certainly nearby Brijuni National Park, which consists of 14 beautiful green islands.
Brijuni is a unique harmony of nature, human, animal and plant life.
After you arrive at Brijuni, a tourist train will take you through the natural beauty of the island, safari park, and historical monuments - Byzantine Castrum and Roman residential villa.
