Brestova, Croatia

Brestova Brestova, a tiny village in the eastern coast of Istria, is located 5 km north of the abandoned medieval village of Plomin with its bay and south of Ucka Mountain ridge.

Brestova is one of the rare settlement on this part of the shore that has remained undeveloped and very sparsely populated because of the Ucka mountain massif that falls steeply toward the sea-coast.

To reach the Brestova ferry port take the winding road that heads down the sea from the old one leading to Opatija. This is a departure point for Jadrolinija's ferries to Porozina on the island of Cres. The ride takes about half and hour, but sometimes at the heigh season drivers have to queue for hours to get on board.


If you happen to be late for the last ferry there is always a possibility to find accommodation in private rooms and apartments in this small place.


Close to Brestova, in a hamlet Baći there is a small church of St. Catherine where you can see a pretty altarpiece made by Valentin Lukas.
