Archaeological Park Vižula - Opening on 12th June!
WELCOME TO VIŽULA, AN AREA WITH A REMARKABLE ANTIQUE HISTORY
Once a small fishing village, Medulin is today one of Croatia's most prominent tourist destinations, with almost half a million visitors a year. Right in the heart of Medulin, and just outside the main tourist area, you can find the Vižula peninsula, a quiet place with a millennia-long history.
This is the site of a new multimedia archaeological park which was opened as part of the Vižula Archaeological Park project.
The archaeological remains in this 26-hectare area range from the Neolithic to Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages. The most significant find in Vižula is the remains of an ancient villa, which with its impressive dimensions, monumental architecture, rich decoration, beautiful mosaics and finest marble, is one of the most attractive, spacious and luxurious maritime residential villas from the period of the Roman Empire on the eastern Adriatic coast.
The park was designed to meet the expectations of both children and adults and includes two bars, children's playgrounds, an adrenaline park, a stage for various events in the former quarry, an archaeology school, and an antique garden. Visitors can obtain all the necessary information at the info-point at the entrance, and also rent VR/AR goggles to enjoy the visualisation of the magnificent restored ancient villa and its individual sections. The park also features smart benches, an e-tree, a hotspot point, interpretation boards that include braille texts for blind and visually impaired visitors, and a circular tactile map. The entire peninsula is also under video surveillance.
Welcome to Vižula!
Take a walk through an area with a remarkable ancient history, breathe in the Mediterranean atmosphere of imperial Rome, relax, and admire the live images of its millennia-old archaeological history. A visit to Vižula is always a rewarding and fulfilling experience.
