Venue: Poreč is a town on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula, in Istria County, west Croatia. Its major landmark is the 6th-century Euphrasian Basilica, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The town is almost 2,000 years old, and is set around a harbour protected from the sea by the small island of Sveti Nikola/San Nicola (Saint Nicholas). Ever since the 1970s, the coast of Poreč and neighboring Rovinj has been the most visited tourist destination in Croatia. Poreč has a very active Go community. Since Go came to Croatia through Istria, the 1st Artur Jonak von Freyenwald Memorial has been organized in May 2023.
