Lovers of science and astronomy will find just the place for them right near Poreč.
The Višnjan Observatory is located 16km from Poreč in the village of Tičan. The number of asteroids it has discovered makes it one of the twelve most productive observatories of all time. During its years of operation, it has proven outstanding in astrometric measurements and the discovery of small bodies. Stargazing the Istrian sky will thrill both young and old.

The most active current projects unfolding at the Višnjan observatory are those designed to popularise and educate within the framework of the Tičan Science and Education Centre, including programmes in many fields of science for pupils of all ages.
