Natural Wonders – The Magical Corner of the Mediterranean

From the shores of the Adriatic to the lowlands and undulating hills in the hinterland, the natural wonders of Vrsar and its surroundings are the source of inspiration for every traveller desiring rest and relaxation. Nature has indeed been generous with this area and made it one of the most beautiful corners of the Mediterranean.

The sea landscape of Vrsar is dominated by an Archipelago of 18 islets, scattered along an indented coastline woven from wooded bays, capes and coves. As the waves lap the bluest lagoons, they play a true Adriatic rhapsody which sooths every soul and fills it with exceptional beauty.

Flora and Fauna of Kontija

Flora and Fauna of Kontija

The Lim Bay opens at the southern end of the town, meandering for 12 km towards the east, deeply incised into the heart of the Istrian mainland. Fresh water flows into the LimBay from the numerous underground springs, and its water sparkles with a characteristic blue-green colour.

The Romuald Cave, located at the eastern end of the LimBay, tells the legend of St. Romuald, a Benedictine hermit.  The cave is entered through a half  meter wide opening leading into an approximately hundred meters long interior consisting of several connected rooms.

Vrsar’s hinterland is the home of the 64 hectares large Kontija, a superbly well-preserved oriental hornbeam forest. More than 140 years old, this forest was given the status of special forest reserve and is considered an important local symbol.
