The small peninsula, where the heart of the old city lies has been inhabited as far back as 6 000 years ago. Two thousand years ago, after conquering the inhabitants, the Histri, the Romans established their colony called Parentium, on this location.
During its storming past, Byzantium, the Venetian Republic, Napoleon's France, Austrian-Hungarian monarchy, Italy and finally Yugoslavia ruled over the city (more about Istrian and Poreč history).
