The city Vizinada is rich of history stories, churches, towers and monuments. Thanks to its position and good land, hills around Vizinada are full of vineyards and olive groves, which are the second main source of income and occupation to the citizens after tourism.
Vizinada back then
Like in the whole Istria, during the medieval times, Venetian noble families were rooling in Vizinada and built the root of this time. Later on in 1990s, thanks to Parenzana railway that connected Italy with istrian cities Poreč, Rovinj and Pula and passed through Vizinada, this city faced big industrial growth. Back in that time, it was strategically important traffic position.
Today, Vizinada is developing further, but in the direction of tourism. Parenzana has been transformed in the tourist attraction and one of the most bellowed bike routes in Istria.
