Istria abounds in specific flavours that can be tasted in a number of forms and products. They can be found in some of the unique gourmet spots scattered throughout the peninsula. In these thematic, sales or educational centres, call them whatever you want, you can discover all the peculiarities of certain traditions of Istrian cuisine.
Dedicated to special products, stories or ingredients, these are spots where you will learn something new about popular, traditional products in one place. At some of them you will be able to taste delicious snacks, while at others you will be able to purchase them and even enjoy a real meal/menu.
Istrian prosciutto, sausages, extra virgin olive oil, truffles, homemade brandies and liqueurs each have their "gourmet spot", and one centre, for example, is entirely dedicated to Istrian cuisine.
Stroll around Istria exploring its attractive gourmet spots and enjoy!
