Home / Croatia/ Istria
Istria is a dreamy peninsula with beautiful scenery. The heart-shaped peninsula reaching deep into the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea is a hidden garden of beauty which opens the door to a sunny and warm Mediterranean. Istria’s crystal-clear sea, clean shores and ports, its lively fishing boats and teeming narrow stone streets display the true charm of the Mediterranean.

Small, picturesque medieval towns perched on the peaks of its hills emanate the peace and gentleness of landscapes that irresistibly evoke the most beautiful parts of Tuscany and Provence. Whereas the coastal towns of Rivinj, Pula, Porec, Novigrad and Umag full of heritage and culture and recalls the images of small Italian towns such as Venice, in the central part of Istria, on the contrary the influence of Central Europe is highly visible. 

Istria offers more than just the sea, romantic coves and tiny ports and charming sea side towns s there is more to see when travelling inland as you will be pleasantly surprised to discover any small medieval towns crowning the hilly landscape.

A walk through the narrow stone-paved streets will become a magical journey through history that is quite unique. Try Motovun, Zavrsje, Groznjan Oprtalj or the smallest town in the world Hum, you will be pleasantly surprised. They may all seem similar but each of these medieval towns are unique and diverse.

The Istrian gentle hills offer an excellent opportunity for cycling and walking for people looking to combine some outdoor activities for their holiday in this beautiful area. Its' rugged coastline is home to many small and large towns and cities and when you drive further inland, you discover pretty hilltop towns and endless lush green scenery.
