Day Trip: Brijuni Islands

Brijuni Islands

When Tito ran Yugoslavia, he chose some of the Adriatic’s most beautiful islands for his personal playground. Today, the Brijuni (or Brioni in Italian) islands are a national park. The largest of them, Veli Brijuni, is where Tito welcomed foreign dignitaries and celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor. Some vestiges of his time here remain, including a small safari park with ostriches and zebras and a golf course. There are miles of lovely walking or bike trails (bikes can be rented at the port), coves for swimming and tennis courts.
