WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN UMAG?
 ŠTO VIDJETI I RADITI U UMAGU? 



CHURCH OF SAINT MARY AND SAINT PELEGRINE

In Umag you can visit the beautiful church of Blessed Virgin Mary and saint Pelegrine. 

CRKVA UZNESENJA BLAŽENE DJEVICE MARIJE I SVETOG PELERGRINA MUČENIKA
U Umagu možete posjetiti prekrasnu crkvu Uznesenja Blažene Djevice Marija i svetog Pelegrina. 




CRKVA UZNESENJA BLAŽENE DJEVICE MARIJE NA NEBO I SVETOG PELEGRINA

Pisano vrelo o župi potječe iz 929. godine. Nažalost, nije nam poznata godina utemeljenja župe. Župa Umag u početku je bila u skolpu Tršćanske biskupije, zatim neko vrijeme Novigradske, te opet Tršćanske. Nakon Drugoga svjetskoga rata bila je u sastavu Apostolske administrature Pazin, da bi danas pridala Porečkoj i Pulskoj biskupiji u čiji je sastav ušla 1977. godine ujedinjenjem cjelokupne Crkve u hrvatskoj Istri. Stara župna Crkva, koja je bila također posvećena Uznesenju Blažene Djevice Marije na nebo i svetom Peregrinu đakonu i mučeniku, nalazila se na mjestu gdje se i danas uzdiže istoimena crkva. Prijašnja crkva bila je okrenuta u smjeru istok – zapad. Prvo njezino spominjanje seže do u 14. st.  Zatim se spominje 1426. godine, kada ovamo dolazi tršćanski biskup Marino de Cernotti zbog neprilika u Trstu. Tu je i neko vrijeme boravio.
Za vrijeme nevremena 1651. godine crkva je bila jako oštećena i u 18. stoljeću odlučilo se da se postojeća crkva sruši do temelja i da se na istom mjestu sagradi veća i ljepša. Projekt je izgradio arhitekt Filippo Dongetti, a gradili su je Aurelio Alessandri i Antionio Centenari.
Crkva je iz temelja izgrađena 1757. godine, a posvetio ju je biskup Petazzi 1760. godine, iako pročelje crkve nije bilo dovršeno.
Crkva je u gradu najznačajnija građevina i zajedno sa svojim odvojenim zvonikom venecijanskog stila iz XV. stoljeća, a obnovljenim 1691. godine (visok 33m), čini središte grada (kao što je i u prošlosti bila). Vrlo lijepa unutrašnjost crkve zadivljuje svakog posjetitelja. Crkva je jednobrodna sa 6 udubina – kapela u kojima su smješteni oltari. Svi su mramorni iz vremena gradnje crkve, baroknog stila, osim novog mramornog u svetištu, okrenutog prema narodu iz 1994. godine. Vrlo lijep glavni oltar sa svetohraništem, tronetom i kamenim kipovima sv. Peregrina, zaštitnika župe i sv. Nicefora, pićanskog biskupa, suzaštitnika župe. Kipove je izradio kipar Antonio Bossa (1780 – 1845). * Citirano sa https://zupaumag.com/o-zupi/ 11.6. 





CHURCH OF THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY  AND THE SAINT PELEGRINE

There is a written source about the parish that dates to year 929. Unfortunately, we do not know the exact  year the parish was founded. The parish of Umag was initially part of the diocese of Trieste, then for some time of Novigrad, and again of Trieste. After the Second World War, it was part of the Apostolic Administration of Pazin, and today it is part of the Dioceses of Poreč and Pula, which it joined in 1977 by uniting the entire Church in Croatian Istria. 

The old parish church, which was also dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Peregrine was located on the site where the church of the same name still stands today. The former church was facing east-west. It was first mentioned in  the 14th century and then again in the 15th century (in 1426), when the Bishop of Trieste Marino de Cernotti arrived here because of  troubles in Trieste. The Bishop also stayed in Umag for a while.
During the storm in year 1651, the church was badly damaged. In the 18th century a decision was made to demolish the existing church to the ground and to build a larger and more beautiful one on the same site. The project was done by architect Filippo Dongetti. The church was built under  Aurelio Alessandri and Antionio Centenari.
The church was built from the ground up in 1757 and consecrated by Bishop Petazzi in 1760, although the facade of the church had not been completed yet at that stage. The church is the most important building in the city. Together with its separate Venetian-style bell tower from the XV. century, and renovated in 1691 (33m high), the church dominates the center of the city (and it was the centre of events in was in the past). The absolutely beautiful interior of the church amazes every visitor. The church is single-nave with 6 recesses - chapels in which the altars are located. All are marble from the time the church was built, Baroque style (except the new marble in the sanctuary, facing the people that dates back to 1994).The stunning main altar with sanctuary, throne and stone statues of St. Peregrine, patron saint of the parish and St. Nicephorus, Bishop of Pizza, co-patron of the parish captures the eye. The statues were made by the sculptor Antonio Bossa (1780 - 1845). * translated by me, text taken from the parish's official site (link above). 





A WALK THROUGH THE CITY CENTRE

I really enjoyed walking through the town centre. The Mediterranean architecture charmed me. Moreover, the town has a relaxed energy. 

ŠETNJA KROZ CENTAR GRADA

Uživala sam šetati kroz centar grada. Svidjela mi se mediteranska arhitektura. Uz to, gradić ima neku lijepu i opuštenu enegriju. 



Umag is a town and a harbour located at the west of Istria. An old city centre  dating back to middle ages is located on a low pennisula. Parts of the medieval walls are still preserved. Umag has a long and interesting history. During one period, Umag was under jurisdiction of  Republic of Venice. In modern times it is one of the most notable tourist centres in Istria (Croatia).





Umag (talijanski Umago), grad i luka na sjeverozapadnoj obali Istre, 13 km sjeverozapadno od Buja; 7093 st. (2011). Srednjovjekovna gradska jezgra na niskom poluotoku; sačuvani dijelovi zida. Barokna jednobrodna župna crkva Uznesenja Blažene Djevice Marije i sv. Pelegrina iz 1757., s venecijanskim zvonikom iz 1691., zavjetna crkvica sv. Roka iz 1514. Galerija »Dante-Marino Cettina«. Turizam; marina. Industrija (proizvodnja brodskih boja, konzerviranje ribe i povrća). U okolici uzgoj voća i povrća, krmnoga bilja, pšenice i vinove loze (veliki vinski podrum). – Naselje se razvilo u doba antike. U izvorima je prvi put zabilježen u VI. st. (Humagum); nastanku i razvoju naselja pogodovao je povoljan smještaj na putu iz Akvileje prema jugu. U srednjem vijeku na mjestu današnjega grada nalazila se utvrda Sipar (Siparies). Godine 876. naselje je razorio hrvatski knez Domagoj, a tijekom idućih stoljeća izgubilo je na važnosti. Godine 1150. grad je prisegnuo na vjernost Veneciji, a 1269. priznao njezinu vlast, nakon čega je uprava u gradu bila organizirana po uzoru na druge mletačke komune u Istri. U kasnijim razdobljima često je stradavao u razaranjima (u sukobima između akvilejskoga patrijarha, Mlečana i Genove), ali i od posljedica epidemija kuge i malarije. Radi demografskog i gospodarskoga podizanja naselja, Mlečani su u Umagu u XVI. i XVII. st. planski naseljavali skupine Hrvata iz Dalmacije i Bosne, kao i manje skupine Albanaca i Grka. Od 1797. nalazio se u sastavu Habsburške Monarhije, od 1918. pod talijanskom vlašću (u doba fašističkog terora velik dio hrvatskoga stanovništva bio je prisiljen na iseljavanje na područje Kraljevine Jugoslavije), a nakon Tršćanske krize, 1954. pripao je Hrvatskoj. U suvremeno doba jedno je od najznačajnijih istarskih (ali i hrvatskih u cjelini) turističkih središta.

  12. Beautiful photos, dear Ivana!
    I was in Umag with my parents when I was a kid, but that was half a century ago and a lot of things in the city have of course changed a lot... although the beautiful old stone buildings have remained the same. I can't really remember Umag, maybe I'll come to this city again? Because you're right, it's not far from Austria...
    I also find your cherry dress wonderful and very versatile. I like the colors a lot!
    All the best

  22. Dear Ivana, after ages I finally get in touch with you again. Sorry for my long absence but I just needed a blog break. Now I am back and very excited about your post from Umag, which I know very well and was often there. Especially when sailing we are often moored in Umag. When I saw your cute dress, I immediately thought to myself that I already know it. It still looks gorgeous on you and you look adorable!
    Love, Nadine

  26. Hello dear Ivana, how you doing? I hope this spring-summer season is going well and I am always excited when I come to your site and see something new.

    I imagine there are a lot of hidden gems in Croatia and Umag seems like a perfect place for a summer getaway, especially for all those landscapes and the possibility to see that magical places reflected on the water :) I loved to see that there a lot of curiosities and historical facts about these places in the city. The cherry dress is also the perfect option for a relaxed spring day, and I liked that you added those shiny shoes for a touch of glam :)

  29. Io ci sono stata ad Umag, tanti anni fa, quando sono andata per la prima volta in vacanza in Croazia!
    Ricordo che era strapiena di gente e di barche, infatti l'abbiamo visitata molto velocemente!
    Sei fortunata ad abitare così vicino a posti tanto belli ed a poterteli godere in qualunque momento senza troppi turisti!
    Infatti hai scattato delle foto stupende! Che mare meraviglioso! *_*
    E sempre carinissima tu! Scelta perfetta l'abito con le ciliegie! :)
    Baci!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
