Many of the little towns in the Istrian Peninsula of Croatia have ancient buildings and fortifications that can be
interesting to see. Spending a day to drive through several of these towns can be enjoyable. The towns reviewed on
this page didn't warrant an entire day of exploration and the points of interest were somewhat limited. Hence, I've
gathered them together here on one page. All of these are small towns of a couple thousand people or so, located on the eastern
side of the peninsula. This page has photos of Barban, Krsan, Pican, and Rabac.
Barban: The town of Barban is located about 30 km north of Pula. It has roughly 2800 inhabitants. Krsan: The town of Krsan is located about 22 km east-southeast of Pazin and has a population of about 2900 persons. Pican: Pican is about 12 km east-southeast of Pazin. Rabac: Rabac is a seaside town 39 km southeast of Pazin. It has become a popular tourist destination and has an
abundance of apartments to rent for travelers.
