Reviews of Umag

The westernmost city in Croatia, Umag is a dynamic, popular and pleasant little port with a charming historic centre.

My suggestion:
In July each year the city of Umag plays host to an ATP tennis tournament that attracts some of the world's best players.
My review

Umag is a very small city (around 15,000 inhabitants) located on the border with Slovenia and not far from Italy. It is both a dynamic and popular city and a pleasant place to visit, despite not really having any exceptional tourist sites to speak of. The centre of the city itself is pleasant however. I came across some nice medieval style streets there as well as a central square dominated by an attractive church, a small site of archaeological interest, and numerous restaurants specialising in seafood dishes.

Because it is one of Croatia's most dynamic cities, Umag attracts investors in large numbers, especially property investors, which has led to an increasing number of apartment complexes and hotels being built here and this has spoiled the city's waterfront area to a large extent.

In summary, Umag can be a nice place to stop and spend some time when visiting Croatia, if you happen to be in the local region, but it is not a city worth making a special trip to see.
