On the Brijuni there are several archaeological and cultural sites. On Veliki Brijun Island over 200 dinosaur footprints have been discovered. There are also two ancient Roman villa remains, from the 2nd Century BC and remains of a Byzantine palace. The majority of the flora on the archipelago of the Brijuni islands has the typical Mediterranean characteristics. Because of the millennial presence of men on the archipelago of Brijuni, the animal world on the islands, besides the autochthonous species, was enriched by many imported species. Inside the park there is an ethno park is an area within the Safari park presenting a typical Istrian homestead with its autochthonous animal species. In 1945 after World War II the Brijuni became part of Yugoslavia and President Marshal Josip Broz Tito made the Brijuni Islands his personal State Summer Residence.
