Fažana through history

The history of Mediterranean towns often relies on mythopoetic records and legends. The story of the Argonauts, mythical seafarers who fleeing with the Golden Fleece from the Black Sea upstream along the Danube arrived to the north Adriatic coast, is also related to Istria, its coastal region. Among other things it is a story of ancient Mediterranean connections, exchange of experience and trade. Such an exchange also included the area of today’s Fažana and Valbandon.
