Dinosaur park Funtana is located in a village Funtana, half-way between Porec and Vrsar. The park is open since 2009. Any time my niece and nephew come to visit us in Porec, we need to go to the Dinosaur Park Funtana. If we listen to them, we would go there everyday. They really enjoy it that much!
