Savudrija


Savudrija (Italian: Salvore) is a coastal settlement in northwestern Istria, Croatia. It has developed from a fishing village into a pleasant holiday centre. Savudrija is also the name of the surrounding area in the peninsula. The main attraction of the settlement is a 29 m high lighthouse, the northernmost in Croatia and reputed to be the oldest on the Adriatic Sea. Three kinds of wind meet here, so the area is popular with windsurfers. As evidenced by archaeological finds, the Savudrija area has been settled since the Neolithic period. The Roman port facilities still remain intact. In the vicinity of Savudrija are some notable Roman sites, in particular a Roman fort on the peninsula. The village was mentioned in written sources in the second part of the 12th century and was part of the Piran municipality from the 13th century,... Find out more →
