Discover Istria

ABOUT THE REGION

Rolling hills overlook the fields and valleys with little towns perched on the peaks, recalling some old paintings. The view is splendid: white-topped mountains, lush wheat fields, plateaux, valleys, vineyards and olive groves on hillsides, and, finally the sea.

As you get to know Istria you will notice more and more enchanting details: church facades and portals, tiny village alleyways with their specific architectural touches, the babble of a stream, the blossoming cherries. Everything is warm–hearted and friendly here: nature, towns and people.

Life along the coasts of Istria has always been closely linked to the sea. Seafarers found shelter in the coves' embrace, fishermen respected such mysterious wide open spaces throughout their entire life, travellers discovered new loves in its harbours. And they will all agree on one thing - the beauty of the Istrian landscape has enchanted many a traveller convincing him to stay and have a new start…

Istria has laid out its wonders in the garden of the Mediterranean, at the foot of the Alps. The blue Adriatic Sea washes its shores, and the towns strung like pearls along the coast: Umag, Novigrad, Poreč, Vrsar, Rovinj, Pula, Rabac - the towns that have made Istria a famous destination.
No, mi vas pozivamo da otkrijete i skrivenije njene draži, tajnovite riznice, intimne kutke i plemenita znamenja. Dođite stoga u zelenu Istru, u predjele iz snova i zbilje, koji će vas obradovati ljepotama i usrećiti mirom, obdariti starinama, okrijepiti onom iskonskom snagom koja čovjeka prožme u susretu s očuvanom prirodom i njenim blagodatima. Vrata gradova i vrata domova ovdje su uvijek otvorena.

But there is also another Istria, a hidden Istria, whose treasures are also worth exploring - the inland heart of Istria, green Istria, a land between dreams and reality, a land of beauty and peace of history and clean, unspoiled nature. Its towns and its people will bid you welcome and let you share in their spirit and the times long gone.

We invite you to visit this beautiful peninsula and see its natural beauty and rich history.
