Abstract
Poreč je gradić smješten na zapadnoj obali poluotoka Istre. Smatra se da mu je povijest duga oko 2000 godina, o čemu svjedoče brojni arheološki nalazi. Otok Sveti Nikola štiti ga od mora. Stanovnici Istre zvali su se Histri. Tijekom povijesti na području Poreča izmjenjuju se mnogi narodi i vladavine. Prvotno je grad bio dio Rimske kolonije Colonia Iulia Parentium. Postupna romanizacija Istre započinje 129. godine pr. Kr. kada konzul Sempronije Tuditan pokorava Histre. U 1. stoljeću Poreč se po prvi put spominje kao oppidum civium Romanorum, odnosno rimski grad. Kroz cijelo razdoblje antike grad je bio morska luka, ali se stanovništvo nikad nije prvenstveno bavilo morem. Uglavnom se živjelo od lokalnog prometa. Krajem 3. stoljeća dolazi do krize u kojoj Rimsko Carstvo postupno propada. Nakon Rimljana, 539. godine na vlast dolazi Bizant. Za vrijeme njegove vladavine sagrađena je Eufrazijeva bazilika. Zatim na vlast dolaze Franci, Venecija, Austrija i Italija. Značajnu ulogu u zaštiti grada imale su gradske zidine s fortifikacijskim objektima, okrugla kula na istočnoj strani grada i peterokutna kula. Od sakralnih spomenika ističe se Eufrazijeva bazilika izgrađena u 6. stoljeću koja je danas svjetski značajan povijesni spomenik, a 1997. UNESCO je uvrštava u svjetsku kulturnu baštinu. Danas je Poreč prepoznat kao suvremeno turističko odredište s bogatom kulturnom i povijesnom baštinom, koja iz godine u godinu privlači sve više turista te obara rekorde u broju noćenja.

Porec is a town situated on the west coast of the Istrian peninsula. It's considered that its history dates 2000 years ago, according to numerous archaeological findings. It's protected from the sea by the small island of Sveti Nikola (Saint Nicholas). The inhabitants of Istria were called Histri. Through the history Poreč have been governed by many different states. Romanization of Istria began in 129 BC. when the consul Sempronius Tuditan concurred Istria and Histrians. In the 1st century Poreč was first mentioned as oppidum civium Romanarumn or Roman city. During the period of Roman times the city was a seaport, but the inhabitants have never been primarily engaged in the sea. The inhabitants mainly lived on local traffic. At the end of the 3rd century a crisis began and the Roman Empire, in time to come, gradually collapsed. During its reign the Euphrasian Basilica was built. After them, the government was in hands of Franks, Venice, Austria and Italy. An important role in protecting the city had the city walls with fortifications, the round tower on the east side of the city and the pentagonal tower. The Euphrasius Basilica stands out as a religious monument built in the 6th century, and now is known as the world's significant historical monument which UNESCO classified as the world's cultural heritage in 1997. Today, Porec is recognized as a modern tourist destination with a rich cultural and historical heritage which attracts more and more tourists
