The Istria region

Christened ‘Terra Magica’ by the Romans, this small peninsula is Croatia’s most westerly region.

Istria is bordered by mountains (Slovenian Alps) to the North and the Adriatic on either side.

On the West coast, the main resort towns are Rovinj and Porec. Novigrad is worth a vist – it is an underrated gem. Nearer Pula (the capital of Istria in the South tip) the island of Brijuni (Tito’s former residence) is a must see, for its natural beauty and bizarre historical and zoological attractions. Vsar is also worth a short visit and the Limski Canal that is enroute.

East Coat and the Islands

To the East, the deep Kvarner Gulf, bounded on three sides by steep mountains, contains Croatia’s largest Adriatic islands. Some such as Krk, Losinj and Rab have long been developed for tourism. Opatija is well worth a visit – it had its glory days in the late 19th century – here the Habsburgs built ornate villas and grand spa hotels, many of these grand villas surrounded by palm groves line the steep wooded shoreline in Opatija and can still be checked into today, at a price.

The town is arranged on a steep hill facing the sea, so all over town you can get fantastic views over the sea and the Bay of Kvarner – there is a wonderful promenade in town also with a nice beach area.

Inland or central Istria is full of small historical towns such as Hum (its smallest town) Motovun, and Groznjan. It is famous for its medieval hilltop towns that dot this spectacular area. This is the heart of truffle country and home to some of the finest wines and olive oil in this part of the Mediterranean.

The mountains of Cicarija and Ucka form the region’s most northern boundary, a haven for hikers, climbers, cavers and paragliders, and a popular destination for extreme sports fans. The east coast remains rugged with forest reaching right down to the rocky coastline giving views out onto the islands of the Kvarner Bay. The joy of Istria is that nothing is ever very far away and inland Istria is every bit as beautiful as the coast.

What makes Istria extraordinary is its scale – you can drive North to South in just over one hour and you are never more than 30 minutes from the coast – yet the range and diversity of locations are amazing.

The Istrian peninsula is very Italian in feel. The Italian towns of Trieste and Venice are just across the Adriatic.

Istria is characterised by a special form of the Mediterranean climate for its geographical latitude: the summers are not too hot and winters are somewhat cold. The picuresque coast is 540 km long with numerous pebble coves and beaches washed by the clean sea.

Istrian Cuisine

Istria is a world away from Dalmatia, where tourist friendly restaurants serve similar types of seafood in uniform sauces. Istria has its own gastronomic identity. Fresh fish of all varieties, pasta, gnocchi, risotto, pizzas feature on all menus. The pearls of Istrian produce, Prsut (parma or cured ham), truffles, fresh fish and wines are available across the region. Springs brings wild asparagus and spring lamb; Summer is awash with fresh fruit and vegetables and Autumn is dominated by mushrooms and truffles. Grappa is a traditional home brew – offered as a complimentary drink in most restaurants after you pay your bill – made from berries, herbs, trees, nuts and fruit – you will often find it being sold along the roadside.

The Istrian wine-making tradition dates back to the time of ancient Greece. On the East coast lies an area known as Kalovojna (Greek for good wine). In face, Greece was the origin of Istria’s main grape variety, Malvasia. While Malvasia, red Teran and refreshing Muscat account for the vast majority of Istria’s vineyards. You can discover these wines by touring the ‘Wine Roads of Istria’ – pick up information from the local tourist office in Rovinj or any town.


The Old Town of Rovinj, known as the pearl of Istria, is a delightful, waterfront town with a historic centre (Marshal Tito Square) that has Venetian-style piazzas, and charming cafes, galleries, old Baroque and Renaissance palaces, small churches and many shops selling crafts, art works and local produce. Strolling the winding cobblestone streets and lanes and enjoying a glass of wine at one of the outdoor cafes are the favourite pastimes here.

The church of St. Eufemia is the town’s focal point – after that the main places to see are: Trg Marsala Tita Square in the centre full of vibrant colours of the buildings on both sides of the square. The fountain in the middle of the square was built in 1959. Dominating part of the square is the Town Clock which dates from the middle of the 19th century.

Leading off from the square is the start of Carera – the high street of Rovinj. Also one finds the Balbi Arch – next to the Adriatic hotel – dating back to 1678 – the arch was built on the site of one of the town’s original seven gates. Upwards from the Balbi arch one finds the Grisia street, probably one of the most walked up and photographed streets in Istria. It is characterised by steps, narrow cobbled steps leading up to the church of St. Eufemia. This street is particularly famous for its local art galleries and souvenir shops. In August, there is a festival on the second Sunday of the month where anyone, not just residents or artist of Rovinj, can display and sell their works of art on the street ( this festival is now in its 58th year).

St. Eufemia’s Day is celebrated on the 16 September – there are celebrations throughout the town. There is a spectacular view over the sea and the Old Town from the church. Look out for the spectacular sun sets from this point.

Rovinj is a relaxed town with a population of around 15,000. With the church of St. Eufemija as its focal point, the town is a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, squares, small churches and old Baroque and Renaissance Palaces. The old part of the town was proclaimed a cultural and historical site in 1963. It is now one of Croatia’s most popular tourist destinations, with a growing reputation for its food, wines and art.

The town is very rich in cultural heritage and is also a meeting point for many painters (in the summer there is the popular exhibition open-air on the famous old Grisia Street). In August there is also a Rovinj Festival (for three days) with fantastic fireworks. All the Rovinj coasts and the surrounding 22 islands are a protected natural heritage. There are many different ways of passing the time: choose a traditional lunch at a local restaurant, horse ride through the nearby woods, have a fisherman's picnic or dance the night away after having sampled a glass of Istrian wine!
