The Museum of Umag sits at the very tip of the town’s pretty peninsula. It’s housed in the 14th-century Bishop’s Tower which was once a used as a fortress to defend Umag from seafront attacks. The museum opened in 1976 with a small collection of stone monuments and artworks. Today, after purchasing private collections and expanding, it’s a well-established cultural and research institution. Fine art and temporary exhibitions are displayed on the first floor; the second floor has a permanent exhibition. Don’t miss ancient gravestone epigraphs and the coat of arms of the town’s former Venetian leaders.
One of the Istrian peninsula’s many gems is the delightful coastal town of Umag. The town’s rich history, dating back to Roman times, is revealed in its amazing architecture and cultural heritage. Umag also offers top-notch Mediterranean cuisine, gorgeous beaches and sports activities galore – it’s especially known for the annual Croatia Open Umag, the country’s oldest and most famous tennis tournament.
