Umag Zgodovina


Umag HistorySlikovito mesto Umag je nastalo na severozahodni obali Istre. Njegovo lepoto so odkrili že rimski plemiči, ki so tukaj ustanovili mesto in ga poimenovali Umacus. Sprva je bil zgrajen na majhnem otoku na ostankih rimskih hiš in je ohranil srednjeveško strukturo mesta. Rimska kolonija je tukaj zgradila obzidje in mesto povezala z notranjostjo. Leta 1268 je padel pod roko Benečanov in pridobil položaj pomembnega pristanišča. V 14. stoletju je bil popolnoma obdan z obzidjem, katerega del na jugozahodni strani je delno ohranjen še danes. Mesto je pravi labirint ozkih ulic, ki vodijo med kamnitimi stavbami iz 15. in 16. stoletja. Številni ostanki in zgodovinske stavbe, ki so se ohranile do danes, so razkropljene po celem starem mestu in vsaka od njih nosi svojo lastno zgodbo o preteklih časih. Med največje znamenitosti mesta sodijo: Mestno obzidje z mestnimi vrati in dvižnim mostom, ki so bili zgrajeni pred več sto leti, utrdba (ena izmed ohranjenih), današnji Mestni muzej, ki je bil nekoč ena izmed mestnih utrdb in je poznan tudi kot Škovska palača ter renesančne zgradbe. V mestu so tudi številni zgodovinski spomeniki, kot so Zgodnjekrščanski sarkofag, zazidan v zid iz 5. stoletja in stare kanonske krogle iz genovske vojske. Umag je fascinantno mesto, polno mešanice starinskega duha in moderne družbe, ki ceni zaklade preteklih časov. Mesto vsebuje veliko edinstvenih spomenikov, kot so: Župnijska cerkev sv. Device Marije, ki vsebuje dragocene ostanke različnih zgodovinskih obdobji, kot so ornamenti iz 18. stoletja ter cerkveni zvonik iz 17. Stoletja, ki krasi cerkev sv. Pelegrina, zavetnika mesta. Umag je eno izmed najbolj znanih obmorskih letovišč na obali. Je tudi dom ene izmed najbolj prestižnih ACI marin in vse bolj cenjeni športni center z odlično opremljenimi športnimi objekti.
