While strolling along the Poreč shoreline, you will see QR codes embedded in the distinctive lines that adorn this area of the city that provide information about the city’s attractions. After being opened, Poreč’s recently refurbished shoreline quickly became a popular gathering spot for both locals and visitors.
The purpose of the multi-meter lines, which stand out in a darker hue during the day and are illuminated at night, is to invite anyone who is interested to explore Poreč’s ancient town core in addition to serving as decoration and illumination.
Each of the lines at the beginning, or on the section that faces the old town from the sea, is labeled with a name in Croatian, English, and Italian, a symbol, and the century in which it was built. There are thirteen of them, each pointing in the direction of one of Poreč’s sights:
‘Two saints’ House
Palace de Vergottini
Gothic Palace „Lion“
QR codes that can be read by smartphones are placed along each of the lines and contain details on the structure and directions to get there. The well-known Poreč waterfront received a new dimension thanks to the QR codes that were placed there, giving both tourists and locals the chance to learn more about and explore the old town.
