Known for sun and the sea, magical hills, Roman monuments, truffles and top restaurants, Istria in tourism world is almost as famous as Tuscany or Spain.
Summer months are perfect to enjoy the sun and the sea, events and gastronomy, in spring and autumn visitors can experience culture, art and sports. We believe that in every season everyone can find something for themselves.
Picturesque hilly inland with a taste of truffles
If you decide to spend a weekend in Istria, among other things, you can't miss the hills from where you can enjoy amazing views of the untouched and impressive natural landscape. Visit Grožnjan, Motovun or Završje and discover the magic that even Hollywood movie producers find difficult to resist.
Along the way, find out more about the historical facts and prepare your palate for top delicacies usually prepared with truffles. We recommend truffle hunting to all truffle fans. After the truffle search is over you can taste this delicacy.
Sea adventures are waiting for you
If along the way, you visit any of the Istrian coastal towns, you must visit the centre of it all -seafront promenade. You will surely enjoy sea activities and sunbathing, while during other months and sunny weather, we recommend enjoyment in relaxing colours of the blue sea, seashore where the waves collide, green pines and the town views bathed in the sun.
Sunsets on the western coast of Istria attract many visitors and you should plan your stay on the coast to see the sunsets in Umag, Novigrad, Vrsar, Poreč, Rovinj..., especially if you consider yourselves to be Instagram enthusiasts.
Rich cultural and historical heritage
Rich cultural and historical heritage (from the Roman time, middle-age to the 20th century) can be found throughout Istria.
The most famous monument of the Roman Empire is the magnificent Arena which has survived for over 2000 years despite political circumstances and time.
The town of Pula is home to many Austro - Hungarian buildings that witness the time of monarchy that ruled until the end of last century. On the previously mentioned hills, there are the medieval Istrian castles which proudly “rule” the picturesque landscapes.
Visit Istria in every season because it will not leave you indifferent!
