Forbes: Gorgeous and Gourmet

The world's most influential lifestyle magazine has published a massive story about Istria

The famous American Forbes, one of the most influential media outlets in the world, has published a major report about the Istrian peninsula under the title Gorgeous And Gourmet: Now Is The Time To Visit Istria.

Award-winning journalist Ann Abel invites travellers and adventurers to visit Istria, providing insight through her own experiences. She highlights a wide range of gastronomic and cultural offers, rich traces of the past, picturesque hotels and traditional gastronomic destinations that should be visited. Leading the reader through Istria, the author introduces us to the offer of the Brijuni National Park, Pula, Novigrad and Rovinj.

Abel, who stayed in Istria at the end of June, particularly emphasized the experience related to truffle hunting as well as to the delicacy itself and concluded "it's always truffle o'clock somewhere".

She also appreciated the precious, healthy blue fish, Istrian cheese, extra virgin olive oil, specific wines and spirits, and when it comes to hosts, she says that they don't care much what time of day the guest appears, since in Istria it is always the right time to welcome and offer them some of the amazing products.

Forbes has written about Istria several times in the past ten years, and the most important step forward took place in 2018, when it included Istria among the 8 most interesting destinations to visit.
