Brijuni Park in Fazana, CroatiaBrijuni National Park is found on a series of 14 islands off Fažana, Croatia. There are almost 700 plant species and about 250 bird species on the islands. The largest is Veliki Brijun, which has traces of dinosaurs, remains of classical antiquity and a very modern resort complex.

Development started in 1893, when an Austrian industrialist, Paul Kupelwieser, owned the Brijuni Islands. His fashionable seaside resort was shuttered during World War I. After World War II, the islands were a favorite retreat of Marshal Josip Broz Tito, the president of the former Yugoslavia.

Now, a tourist train takes visitors through the safari park, by the Byzantine castrum and a Roman residential villa in Verige Bay as well as the natural areas. Right by the harbor is the 15th century church of St. German, which houses an exhibit of Istrian frescoes and copies of Glagolitic monuments. Nearby is the natural science exhibit, archaeological museum and an exhibition, “Tito on Brijuni”.
