Features and Facilities
The Istria region
Istria Gourmet: Gastronomic or culinary tourism is at the heart of the vision for Istrian tourism. It is the most fully developed tourist product largely because it is a natural extension of Istrian hospitality. With its numerous facets, gourmet tourism unifies a broad spectrum of projects from agritourism to 'Wine Roads', 'Open Cellars' Day, 'Truffle Days', bicycle tours and many other components of Istrian tourism.
The interior of Istria reveals a great number of authentic inns, or konobas, and wine cellars where each meal acquires an added dimension. The preparation method, ambiance and delightful hospitality make every meal an exceptional gourmet experience. The selection of dishes is based on meat and pasta,such as: peka, meal prepared under a baking lid; ombolo,boneless pork loin; kapuz, sausages with sauerkraut; fuži,pasta; or gnocchi in a sauce locally known as šugo (made from game,farm-raised chicken or truffles).
