Istra Cup

, Porec

It's simply magical.

International youth football tournament in Porec, Croatia: Istra Cup

Sun, sea, pine forests: the Istra Cup is the right place for teams looking for a tournament in a relaxed environment! The sports and holiday resort Zelena Laguna is located near the seaside resort of Porec. This is where many professional teams, and previously even the national Croatian team, come for their annual training camp. During Easter, the sports complex becomes the main location for the Istra Cup and is fully reserved for the youth of Europe. However, do not miss visiting  the beautiful 2000 year-old city of Porec, just a bit further. Very highly recommended.

Porec

The seaside resort of Porec (12,000 inhabitants) is situated on the west coast of Istria, about 60 kilometres from Trieste (IT). Thanks to its ideal location on the Adriatic, the Mediterranean climate, the impressive monuments in the attractive centre and the beautiful promenade, the city has grown into a famous tourist attraction. Despite its popularity, Porec has remained a friendly city with restaurants and cafés around the old harbour.

Istria

Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea and the most western province of Croatia. Istria boasts at least 445 kilometres of rocky coastline, making it a popular holiday spot for sun worshippers! The towns of Pula, Poreč and Umag are the most noteworthy tourist destinations. Istria has a pristine natural landscape with lakes and waterfalls, a rich centuries-old culture and hospitable people.

Aquacolors Poreč Water Park

Aquacolors Poreč is the largest water park in Croatia - for everyone from 0 to 100. 12 extra-long slides are sure to satisfy even the biggest water freaks. For families with small children, there is a large children's pool with all kinds of water activities, as well as several long family slides. Relax during a gentle swim around the 500m-long lazy river or in the large wave pool.
