Brijuni National Park was established in 1983. It is situated close to the coast of Istria, not far from the town of Fažana. The Brijuni Islands, the only national park in Istria, consists of 14 islands. The largest islands are Veliki Brijun and Mali Brijun, while the rest of the islands are smaller. The sea is shallow in this area, around 12 m deep between Fažana and Brijuni, and Tisnac pass that separates Veliki and Mali Brijun is only 2.5 m deep. You can find many attractions here: dinosaur footsteps, an underwater educational trail, ruins of an ancient villa, 1600-year-old olive tree, a safari park, an ethno park, a bird reserve and many other things, and you can see it all by a sightseeing train.
