Along the west Istrian coast there are several groups of islands among which the largest, most interesting and indented is the Brijuni group, comprising 14 islands and islets with a surface of 7.4 square kilometers.

Veliki Brijun, as the largest island of the Brijuni archipelago which is partially cultivated in a harmony of lawns and landscape parks, comprises well-preserved vegetation systems of the west Istrian climate, along with extremely valuable remains of construction heritage. It is important to point out that the sea makes nearly 80% of the national park’s protected area, which contains almost all original elements of the Adriatic maritime ecosystem.
