The mild climate and the lush Mediterranean vegetation, the enterprising spirit of the local people encouraged them to build the first hotels as early as the beginning of the 19th century and to found the first tourist association. In recent decades Umag has evolved into a modern tourist resort enriched with new facilities every year before the start of the tourist season. In winter, seemingly a quiet and desert place, in summer the town lives with its full life. The name of Umag has been renowned throughout Europe and the whole world thanks to the top sports and cultural events, the most outstanding being the international tennis tournament Croatia Open.
