• Plava Laguna Half Marathon  

    23.03.2019 - 24.03.2019


    10:00 h

    The traditional Plava Laguna Half-Marathon will be held in Poreč on 23 and 24 March 2019.

    We're expecting more than 500 running fans who want to try their hand at a half-marathon and spend an unforgettable spring weekend by the sea. While you're running along the beautifully kept, flat course, you will enjoy breathtaking locations such as Plava and Zelena resorts and the town of Poreč.

    If the 21km of a half-marathon seems too much of a challenge, you can try the 10km Run instead. There's also a fun race for kids (Kids’ Run from 400m to 1,800m) and a group race for the whole family (Family Run 3.5km).

    Whichever race you choose, the fun atmosphere, fresh spring air and great company are a winning combination! All registered competitors will receive a T-shirt (half-marathon and 10k run), a finisher medal, a start number, chip, course surveillance, and refreshment.
    Registration for the race is free if you book accommodation at one of Plava Laguna's accommodation facilities.

    International mosaic art simposium

    Trg slobode (Square)

    International mosaic art simposium

    The specific artistic heritage has ranked the city of Poreč among special cities with rich cultural heritage. The most prominent symbol of the city's cultural and archaeological heritage is the preserved and valuable mosaic sculpture of the Episcopal Complex of the Euphrasian Basilica, inscribed on the UNESCO's World Heritage List.

    More than 14 centuries had passed from the last mosaic sculpture on this site until 2012 and the launch of the MOSAIC CITY project for the urban regeneration of mosaic art based on cultural heritage as a foundation for further production.

    The Mosaic City Symposium will gather relevant international and Croatian artists and experts. Its aim is to establish a precondition as well as a technical possibility for creating new and valuable pieces of art for which the City of Poreč would become known and included in the international tourist and art map as a recognizable site for its valuable collection of ancient and modern mosaic works of art.

    Results obtained from artistic, professional and scientific work of the Symposium will remain a permanent heritage of the city and future generations.

    Start a path of health and friendship with your family and friends, set off along Parenzana on adventurous and recreational gathering...

Today it is an attractive pedestrian and biking path riddled with numerous tunnels and viaducts, which leave cyclists, hikers, runners and searchers simply breathless. The most famous Istrian path invites you to, while cycling or hiking along the sections of its magnificent route, be a part of an event that brings together natural beauties and recreation under the spring sun.

    We are inviting all cyclists and hikers to join us for a recreational gathering which will be held on Sunday, 28 April 2019 in Baredine near Nova Vas in Poreč.

    Equip yourself and bring along your good mood, invite your loved ones and join a day of adventure in roaring along the centennial Parenzana paths!
