Should you like to feel the pulse of tourism in Umag, the Tourist Board's information office in the centre of the city is an excellent place to do so. Not only because of the availability of information but also because the events currently going on in the city including entertainment, cultural and sports events are creatively presented in the large glass display.
If you find asparagus inside, know that the city is celebrating this Mediterranean delicacy, while a towel, candles and pebbles note an attractive spa-wellness offer, while during the historic festival the tourist board’s display boasts objects from Ancient Rome. A unique stamp shall also be left by the ATP tournament, the International Chamber Theatre Festival, musicians from all over the world, European and International championships in various sports...
“How to plan a cycling tour for the family? What to visit? Where to fix a washing machine? Guests have at their disposal the most diverse questions and assistance and we wish to be as available and open as possible. If we do not know how to answer your question, it won’t take us long to find out,” says Sanda Bravar Radizlović, the multitalented and efficient director of the Tourist Board.
Although much information is available using a touch-screen, Sabina Zacchigna divulges that most guests prefer to speak to the people at the tourist board about Umag, Istria and Croatia. Other than Sabina and Sanda, the team includes Franka Anđelić and Daniel Rotta, all tourism professionals that are up to any task.
The airiness, modernity and glass of the office itself fulfil its basic task with ease – bringing Umag closer to travellers from all over the world. The entrance offers access for handicapped persons and information is available in a number of languages, in print or orally. Just aside the office and in parts of the old city you can also connect to the free wireless internet service.
Should you decide to take an excursion to or stay in Savudrija, the beautiful fishing village and most westerly point of Croatia, expect to find another tourist information point overflowing with information and advice given by Dario Penco and Loretta Krota.
