Fažana (pronounced [faʒǎna], Italian: Fasana) is a town and municipality on the western coast of Istria, in Croatia.

Yugoslavia's former President, Marshal Josip Broz Tito, is reputed to have loved Fažana and the Brioni Islands, spending up to six months of his year there. Yugoslav President was reported to have joined local fisherman in their work during his stays in Fažana.[2]
