Weekend vacation on the peninsula

Should you decide to spend a weekend in Istria, you certainly will not make a mistake, no matter the season. This small peninsula with rich history and top gastronomy offers a perfect escape from everyday life.

Istrian old town cores will leave you breathless - be it the ones by the sea or on picturesque hills in the heart of green Istria. The history of the castles and fortifications you choose to explore will take you to a long - lost and forgotten world. Make sure also to look into the churches of Istria, enjoy the lively medieval frescos and the world of the amazing Glagolitic alphabet.

If you prefer to enjoy the wonders of nature, take a bike ride or put on your favourite running shoes to explore the nature. Bike and running trails are simply beautiful during the autumn season. After you have experienced the running and cycling trails, you will surely feel tired and exhausted. It's the perfect time for you to relax!

The best thing you can do for yourselves during your stay in Istria is to visit a spa centre, take a swim in a swimming pool, relax in a sauna or try aroma massage. Recharge your batteries with new energy and good mood!

After daylong activities, it is time to enjoy good food and taste the traditional Istrian cuisine which will not disappoint you. It is based on healthy fruits of the rich land; the meals are prepared with olive oil and seasoned with aromatic herbs. After tasting it, you will certainly feel the love with which the food is being prepared. Wine roads stretch throughout the entire peninsula; make sure you taste some because there is something for everyone.
