The beautiful sea bed of Vinkuran, especially the islands in its vicinity, are very attractive to divers because of their
truly unique underwater caves. Nearby there is the place called Vintijan, known for its large and well-preserved prehistoric
hillfort. Even with all these attractions, Vinkuran is still most famous for the ancient Roman quarry, Cave Romane, from whose
high-quality limestone the Pula Arena was built, as well as many other objects and countless sculptures. Today it is the stage
of art colonies, where many sculptors show their talent and love for this valued stone.
Like many other places in Istria, Vinkuran was abandoned several times after the plague and re-settled on several occasions,
especially in the 16th and 17th centuries. At the end of the 19th century, during the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Vinkuran was
populated by the inhabitants of Premantura, who were hired in Pulas' Aresenal, the powerful naval port and shipyard of the
Austrian monarchy. In 1904, Vinkuran got its first school, finally becoming a permanent living place for the local people.
During the reign of Italy, as well as in other places, Vinkuran experienced a difficult period, which lasted until the end
of the Second World War and the final liberation of these areas.
