The Brijuni Archipelago is a group of 2 larger and 12 smaller islands along the west Istrian coast. The Mediterranean climate has enabled rich vegetation with specific balance of natural and cultivated parts.
Because of the millennial presence of the man on the Brijuni Archipelago the autochthonous animal world on the islands has been enriched by many imported species that are not congenial to this habitat but which got perfectly adapted to it. Some animals move freely in nature and some are located in safari and ethno parks for autochthon species and in the bird reserve.
Far away from sources of pollution, the sea around Brijuni Islands is a home to numerous species, which is of exceptional significance.
The Brijuni Archipelago was the summer residence of the Yugoslavian president Tito, first Croatian president TuÄ‘man, and the location for many high-profile political conferences. Numerous famous people were also guests here. Tito’s parrot called “Koki” is a legendary Brionian attraction.
