A rich past

Umag has a rich and interesting past: it was discovered by the Roman nobles who decided to usurp it as their summer residence, while the Germanic kingdoms, the Byzantine Empire and the Frankish state fought over it until it recognized the authority of the Venetian Republic in the late Middle Ages. Umag stayed under the reign of Venice until its fall in the late 18th century. The legacy of those times remains preserved in numerous Renaissance and Baroque Venetian houses of the old Umag town centre, parts of the walls, towers and churches.
