Sites worth visiting
The Byzantine castrum
The richest site by its strata on the Brijuni stretches on a surface area somewhat larger than 1 hectare in Madona Bay. Findings from the period of the Roman Republic and Empire, late antiquity, Eastern Goths, Byzantium, the Carolingian period and Venice testify to its longtime settlement.
Persons worth knowing about
The Austrian industrialist and expert on steel who bought malaria-ridden Brijuni in 1893 and transformed them into a fashionable summer and health resort of the European and global aristocracy was a great visionary.
Discovered the cause of tuberculosis and cholera and was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1905. An exceptionally important task for Paul Kupelwieser was to exterminate malaria from the islands.
Educational trail Zelenikovac
The walking educational trail Zelenikovac is a unique blend of natural, cultural and geological-paleontological heritage from the Early Cretaceous period.
Educational underwater trail
The educational underwater trail in Verige Bay on the southern side of Veliki Brijun offers a unique experience of visiting natural and archaeological sites of the exceptionally rich and well-preserved marine world in Brijuni National Park.
Almost every visitor to the National Park wishes to take a ride in Tito’s Cadillac, which arrived in Brijuni as early as 1953 as a gift to the former president of Yugoslavia from Croatian immigrants in Canada.
Koki the cockatoo
Koki, Tito’s well-known parrot and one of the rare examplars of yellow-crested cockatoos which live up to 100 years, is a legend that lives on Brijuni Islands.
