Istria

Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea, located at the head of the Adriatic between the Gulf of Trieste and the Kvarner Gulf. It features a bucolic scenery of rolling hills and fertile plains and is a favorite destination for food- and culture-focused lovers to Istria’s hilltop villages and farmhouse restaurants, while the indented coastline is enormously popular with the sun-and-sea set. Despite the vast hotel complexes which line much of the coast and the fact that the rocky beaches are not Croatia’s best, facilities are wide-ranging and the sea is clean offering many secluded spots for maximum relaxation. Istria is a hidden gem in Croatia to get away from the crowds and find a more authentic and relaxing holiday experience. It is one of the most beautiful parts of the country for the fact that it has strong Italian influences thanks to its proximity to the Italian border. Both Croatian and Italian are the official languages and not surprisingly Istria is famous for its great wines and Mediterranean cuisine.
