The Istria region
The Adriatic below the Alps, central Europe's closest Mediterranean. This miniature heart-shaped world and the largest peninsula of the Adriatic Sea lies on the 45th parallel emphasizing its idyllic geographical position with perfectly arranged seasons - lush greenery springs, colourful autumns, pleasant summers and mild winters....
It is an area out of the usual tourist drifts, away from crowd and stress, with hamlets cast about in a landscape and old small towns on tops of the hills. Who would say that there is such a treasure of fresco colours made by medieval masters in those small village churches, or such a fine vine poured in cellars; that even the underground hides so eye-pleasant secrets. Discover them, and be a guest in our village households.
